Must be an accepted risk in their operation, and repair bills to be paid for, the repair bill costs added to the cost of using the dryer.


Good theory, but I do not ever remember my Grandfather telling me we were going to take apart a machine to get out the coins from between the tubs. This was back in the 60s and 70s when things were made well though.

The front loading washers were Westinghouse Streamliner RL-1s:


These had thicker, heavy inner and outer tubs as did the dryers. The dryers were the large, tall ones with very large tubs - still found along a wall in modern laundromats.

So do coined dryers carry a premium?

Awesome post Earle42 - bookmarked for future reference!

This kind of makes me want to take a handful of coin change and keep running it through a dryer for six months.

@skyshark
Remember commercial machines are running many, many more times a day than the average machine. Also, unless you just decided to leave no clothes in there with them, you likely would get nothing but very dry clothes and clothes-polished coins.

Thanks for teaching Earle. That's one of the nobler aspects of our hobby. In 1974, Mr Kearns had a gas station (full service & garage of course) with a small coin shop in the back. Looking back, I remember how he was a natural at teaching us kids about coins. Making proofs, double dies, explaining bag marks, etc. Hats off to you Bill Kearns in that big Coin Shop in the sky.

Anyway, I found my first dryer coin. A1946 LWC. It's not too severe but has the flaring/ mushrooming. After explaining how the coin came to be deformed so, my wife & some friends THINK ME A GOD! Well maybe not but they were impressed. Thanks

@ Jlafever..

I am so humbled to have had some small part in your achieving deity status - a very big honor indeed .



Seriously - I got a good chuckle out of that part of your post

I truly am honored this thread can be used by others. The CCF family has given me so much, I like to feel like I can give something back.

Funny thing about all this that I just thought of... I never have found a dryer coin in circulation!
