Default Coinstar score, my first silver

Found at wally world...silver Canadian dime! Had only a dirty zincoln with it. I've only found one Canadian silver in the ground also. Most times it's empty for me, and when it's not, its usually Canadian clad or US change with some kind of "stuff" on it happy hunting everyone

Very cool! I have been shut out at the coin star since the beginning of the year. Found that one good thing, and it has been zincolns ever since.

I really like Canadian silver. It isn't something you come across every day.

Good score! Ive been finding small amounts of clad here and there, but my fave machine was moved right by the entrance of the store, so its easy to just glance for goodies, instead of going for a look see when it was out of the way
