Default First Coinstar of 2017 - Silver Barber Dime!

I've been consistently checking local Coinstars when I have the chance with little success, but last night hit one with $4.36 in clad including this sweet little 1912 Barber Dime! First silver of the year!

Wow awesome grab congrats! Most people who wouldn't know any better would probably think it's a Foreign coin. HH!

I'd Consider it Lucky to find a Rosie,
Really lucky to find a Merc, & Extremely lucky to find a Barber from a coinstar machine.
Nice catch there!

Wow, that's awesome. I have found 3 silver coins in the coinstar but all Rosies.

Wow, I bet that was a surprise. I've found probably eight silver Rosies, and one 1942 quarter that looked like it was in a fire, as it was totally black, but cleaned up nicely in my tumbler. Never a Barber. Congrates
HH everyone

I haven't cleaned it up at all. It definitely got me a bit more interested in checking the Coinstars! haha

Coinstars don't read silver coins I imagine and reject them?
