I was walking into my local grocery store just as a couple was finishing up at the coinstar tonight...this has been happening lately...so as they left I headed towards the coinstar machine....and noticed what I thought was a penny on the floor...(maybe it bounced out of the reject bin?) and a key on the shelf...so I thought my chances might be pretty good at retrieving some rejected coins. The machine was empty so I picked up the "penny" from the floor which to my surprise turned out to be a 44 mercury dime...than I headed to the counter to see the clerk about rejected coins he had from the self check out machines...and he gave me a couple wheats and a Canadian penny...
All in all pretty pleased.

Thanks for viewing!
