Hi all,

I have been swapping out quarter rolls with several of my financial institutions for several months and early on found a "War in the Pacific" "W" mint mark.
Just yesterday I happened upon a "San Antonio Missions" "W" as well ... and it only took roughly 140 quarter rolls (5600 coins) to find. Hopefully there will be addition goodies for me to find - before my sources get tired of seeing my ugly face!

Nice! It just takes, time, patience and a good supply to find them!

I was in Las Vegas last week and played a coin-in/coin-out quarter video poker machine at the Fremont Casino downtown. I was able to pull out 5 pretty decent 2019-W Idaho River of No Return coins during the time I played. I was happy!

Now THAT is amazing. Not only did you find 5 "W" coins, but you found a slot machine that actual takes and dispenses coins!

There are at least 4 casinos in downtown Las Vegas that still have SOME coin-in/coin-out machines. They are: The Fremont, The Californian, Main Street Station and The El Cortez. (I got my last silver quarter out of a machine at The Californian last year!)

The video poker coin machines have been upgraded from the old CRT displays to more modern flat screen displays. So, it looks like they may be around for a few more years.

The coin machines are still very popular .... when you can find them. I haven't seen a coin machine on the Strip in many years.
