I recently pulled out a rare U.S. Six Cents piece - a nickel stuck to a cent.

It's going on eBay as an unknown rare type for $25,000.

Well, I have a story for everyone. It started at a bank's coin counting machine, so I guess this is the most appropriate place for it.

I just finished CRH a box of halves, and I was at my dump bank to run $499 through their coin sorting machine (I found 2 NIFCs). In the discharge tray, I found a Canadian dime, so I'm already feeling alright.

I ran the halves through the sorter, and came up $1.50 short. I took my ticket up to the teller to get the $497.50, and I let her know her machine may be off a little. A second teller volunteers to open the machine, and finds my missing halves. While she's doing that, the first teller says, "I have some foreign coins that are going in the trash. Did you want them?" So, she proceeds to hand me the "foreign" coins from a bag already in the trash: $1.20 Canadian, 2 Euros, and $3.30 US (one coin a Sacagawea, and another a Susan B. Anthony). I then told her if she ever has foreign coins she plans on throwing away, I'll take them.

Anyway, I've included pictures below. I didn't strike it rich, but what a fun day. And, because I know there are quarter hunters here, that 2020 Salt River Bay has a "P" mintmark.

Happy hunting, everyone!
BC

- Copper pennies x4
- Wheat pennies x1
- Dimes x1
- $0.35 Canadian
- One 1982 20 pence coin
- One 10 Won coin (S.Korea)

Happy hunting, everyone

A local Coinstar reject slot yielded 25 cents US, one each Mexico 1 and 2 peso coins, and a silver 1959-D dime. Free silver is always welcome!

Nice find on the silver, Jaobler! I'm always hoping the next coin will be silver, but so far I have yet to find my first one. I'll post a pic if I ever pull one.

Spotted something shiny in the coinstar at my local Walmart. The return slot was so full of coins there were a few on the floor. At least 3 scoops later, I stuffed about $24.00 in clad into my pants pocket. Amazing what people leave behind around the holidays. No silver but 5 wheatbacks.

Mountainman 2, that is really something! I can't believe that much was left behind. Makes you wonder how much was dumped in to begin with!

And, deadmummy hit paydirt with that silver!

I'm jealous of the both of you!
