Pulled it out and saw a 1968-D 40% Slver Kennedy half dollar! I reached back in and pulled out an additional 48Ę in clad. It is a great feeling to get some free silver.

Happy hunting and God bless!
and of course being the "always thinking of the other poor unfortunates in the world" type, you immediately gave it to the salvation army!.."woot!..woot!"
i'm just sayin'

Nice find! I literally have not even found a single coin in my local coinstar in 6 months, let alone any silver. Think someone at the store is keeping an eye on it...Ö.

Congrats Garrett on a free Silver Half. I'm still waiting on my first Coinstar Silver. Actually checked four of them today, all empty. Trapper

Thanks, guys! I actually found the silver half and posted this thread a year ago, but it was recently bumped back up.

It definitely pays to check, that's for sure! Thanks for the reply, Mtc8966!

Thank you, Jeff! That's too bad, hopefully you'll find one soon!
