Default Coinstar Machines

OK here's a tip for finding silver coins.
We all know that wehn you bring coins to turn in at the Coinstar Machines they have to be relatively clean for the machine to process them. Well guess what ? They also need to be CLAD or pennies for the machine to count them. Any and all SILVER coind will be rejected by the machine.
Here's the rub........ most people DO NOT look in the slot to see if any coins were rejected. Just check the return slot and you may find a Silver Surprise.

I refuse to pay a 15% comission to Coinstar. I bought my own machine for $50, that counts and rolls automatically. I've used it for years without a problem.

I agree! Even better, my banks has a coin machine with 0% commission...:

When did their commission jump to 15% Thought it was 9%. Still stupid to pay anything at all. Wish I would have thought of this idea.

I'm beginning to love all the international coins I'm running into with Coinstar.

Another silver score! Saw a Rosie sitting all by its lonesome in the slot yesterday.

I bought the machine at "Staples" about 4 years ago. It uses the preformed rolls and holds two rolls for each coin type. It has an LCD counter, and is battery operated. The counter can be inaccurate at times, but the rolls only hold the exact amount, so that is where I get my totals.
I will try to get a pic soon, but this weekend may be tough.

I use a manual coin sorter I bought at office depot(the canadian version of staples) for 15 bucks. It did the job and allowed me to spot old coins in my jar.

Default Coin Counting

Never heard of a Coin Master. Maybe in Illinois they do not exist? Anyway, I hope the automatic coin counters in the banks do not reject the silver coins. But then again, I would not want to count the silver coins on the same standard as a silver plated coin. Does anyone know where one would turn in their silver coins for its REAL value? 8)
