Default Standing in a Coinstar

OK, it's not a standing liberty quarter, but Helvetica is standing in her toga. This is a Swiss 1/2 Franc I found in the coinstar while I am vacationing on Hilton Head Island.

Headed out with the F-70 to the beach in the morning to see what treasures are there.

Edit : Probably helps if i upload the pics

Sorry to see you got the same treatment I got, Coffin.

We've also been caught in the cruel hoax.

I have tried looking in some coinstars in my area. Bupkis is what I get. I guess the people here don't leave anything behind or I am always too late.

Cool coin! Looks like it could carry a date in the 1800's and still be legit.
