I took my wife to Walmart to pick up a few things and heading toward the exit I stopped to check the coin star as I always do. I saw some coins in the tray but I also noticed about 10 dimes laying on the floor. All total there was $13.60 in dimes and 4 pennies.Two of the dimes were 62 and 64 silvers. I also got two 1 Pfennig coins, 1 10 Pfennig and the gold looking piece is a 5 Pfennig. Most of the dimes dated late 60s to the early 90s Only 3 were newer than 2000.
My wife walked away like she didn't know me just because I got down on my knees to pick up the stragglers!

I never get rewarded when I take my wife to Walmart... all I ever get is, "you don't need another shovel for detecting, now put it back!" :laughing7:

Congrats on the Rosies... as you mentioned, how could someone just leave all that cash in the tray. :icon_scratch:

Value wise, this has been my best find at a coin star but I did get another haul last September that out weighed this one. $11.45 in assorted coins.

Congratulations! How do you guys do it all the time. I never find anything in the local coinstar machine! I guess the locals are too savvy to leave any money, pennies included, lying around money machines! :dontknow:???:crybaby2:

Most times I come up empty but every now and then I find something.
