Went to the grocery store to buy some bread today but the solitary staffed checkout line was a mile long and the whole self-checkout system was broken. Not wishing to spend an hour attempting to buy an 87 cent loaf of bread I decided to not even bother. On my way out of the dysfunctional store I noticed Mr. Coinstar had a hand full of coins waiting for me:

Clearly just a bunch of crusty old zinc pennies but I took them anyway just to be sure.

I forgot about the handful of crusty pennies for about an hour when I took them out of my pocket to finally assess what I had found, and to my suprise this is what I saw:

I am glad someone does ok at the coinstar machines
Not as good as that T-net user who found a gold sovereign in there the other day. Imagine finding a 150 year old gold coin in a return slot! That post inspired me to look more frequently! πŸ₯³πŸ•ΊπŸ’ƒπŸ‘‘πŸ₯³
