:occasion14: Nice find in coinstar tonight. Usually when I check it this store's coinstar, it has nothing. Tonight the reject bin was loaded with coins. Total was $11.35 clad American and + 1 Silver Roosie (61D) 10 Cents foreign (2 Barbados nickels). Coin breakdown as follows:
36 clad quarters ($9.00)
28 nickels ($1.40)
7 clad dimes ($.70)
25 zinc pennies (memorial & shield) ($.25)

The coins were 3 handfuls out of the reject bin and weighted 0.935 lbs. They had moved the coinstar machine from a back corner to up front by the self check out section. A lot more people check it there so finding so a huge amount is very unusual. Made up for all the times there was nothing. Stay Cool, Stay Dry & Stay Vertical All!

Was there anything unusual about the rejects? You seem to have found an awfully large number of them. Could the machine have been out of calibration?

Nothing was unusual, all the coins seemed normal. I think someone was dumping a large amount of coins and these were just the over flow. These machines will dump the excess coins when they are overloaded. I've seen it happen before.
