My results from visiting three coinstars after work:

One clad dime from nineteen hundred and eighty three.

At least it was ten cents.

Yep. Kind of rare, I suppose, since they should not be rejected simply for being a War Nickel (as pointed out here recently).

I did briefly, as well, but the pendant appears to be copper and was most likely plated with silver or something similar before it all got worn off. I think it's safe to assume that valuable gemstones aren't set into plated jewelry, or even most sterling jewelry for that matter. In any case, I still have it, too.

Oh that I was where I would be,
Then I would be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.

I work at a grocery store and we have a coin star. If it messes up, I am the one with the key who is going in to figure out why it isn't working, clean the coins out of the hopper and push them down into the crate if it's over flowing. My best find was about a year ago from our coin star machine - an 1830 Large Cent Penny. About a month ago I know the machine got "stuck" so they had to open it up. I guess the person had left. I wasn't there that night, but inside was 10 silver dollars. They know I like the coins so they saved 9 of them for me! They were mostly Ikes.

Yesterday, the local supermarket Coinstar had a few coins in it, but only these two were interesting...my first two "good" finds of 2021.

I was about to shrug off today's reject tray find, but then something caught my eye. Do you see what I see?

Wow, spruett001! Very rare to find a War Nickel in a Coinstar... did you weigh it by chance? I've only found one ever and that one was plated with some substance, making it outside of the tolerances for the machine.

Wow, tnt! That is a neat find... my oldest is a 1913 European Large Penny from my famous pre-Christmas silver bonanza 3 years ago.

Wow, Michello454! That's amazing! And welcome to the forum.
Out of curiosity, jbuck or someone who knows the history, any idea what the oldest coin found in a Coinstar is here?
