What a sack of finds!! Is that a proof 1964 kennedy I see?

I used to work at Safeway as a courtesy clerk doing basic slave work around the store and pulling in carts from the parking lot. I was often bagging groceries at the end of the checkout stands, and there was a coinstar against the back wall behind me. Everytime I passed the machine, I checked the reject bin and the tray for leftover change that wasn't pushed into the machine. In the three months that I worked there, I never had any stunning finds. A couple silver dimes, and a lot of gum change and foreign coins.

One day the reject tray was filled to the top, almost overflowing. I scooped out all the coins inside, and stuffed them in my apron pocket. It was all 1960's-1980's German coins. The rest of the night I was hauling around a couple pounds of German pocket change in my apron.

I pulled a War Nickel from those donation boxes at the end of the checkout counter. I had to flip the entire box upside down repeatedly to get the nickel through the small drop-in hole. The store was packed and lines were long, so I was in a tight spot, but I finally got the silver nickel. Don't worry, I ran to my car to grab another nickel, replacing the one I took. There were cameras everywhere in the store, and I didn't want it to appear like I was stealing.

I don't want to hijack the thread, I just was recalling an interesting time of my life.

That surely is a collection/accumulation dump you've stumbled upon @cap. My fav is that '42 Walking Liberty half dollar.

No not a 64 proof @jacrispies. John1, no more lottery for me. I would say I have broke even over time. I rather hunt rolls, keep eyes peeled. You only spend time not money doing that.

I actually need to take a break from it for a few days. Going non stop for 5 weeks 20 hrs a day. Too hot outside and business has slowed down.

My best find was 36.03
36.00 was Kennedy half's no silver.
But 36.00 bucks is still 36.00 bucks.

Here is a summary of (Most of...) my free silver haul from the last few years of coinstar finds

More than $6.00 dollars face value in dimes, plus one impaired 1994-S proof silver dime, 1923 and 1940 Merc dimes (1918-D not shown, keeping that one!), at least 9 silver Washington quarters, and a few other silver coins I am going to keep...

These all I am trading for other needed coins from a coin shop, so free silver like that can add up pretty good!
