I did, but I donít. My collection was sold to the Hunt Brothers back in 1979 when they ran up the price of silver.

Grandma saved mercury dimes from her post office job back in the seventies, and gave them to me bless her heart. My brothers and I also each received Ike dollars each year for our birthdays...I guess you could say that Grandma was the collector...

It was full AGAIN today! Just foreign coins and new clad rejects i think but I saw the lady take her receipt to checkout and gave her her coins. Same dang machine. What are the odds, I've never found anything in another machine. Crazy.

That is a great coinstar score. I have never found a silver coin older than the 40's. I woul love to find a barber or a merc there.

Thereís some pretty neat coins in there. Itís a shame people donít realize those coins are the cool ones, or at least remember to check the tray when theyíre done.

Wow is all I can say! Congratulations! That's $30+ in melt value for silver alone! I've never seen a LC found in one either. Great job on the easy grab-n-go collection of coins!

Great stuff
