Default Had to Get Out and Scored!

Had to get out, decent weather for a 40 degree hunt....just getting over a touch of the flu but I was resolute to do some social distancing and have a mental health day, glad I did.

All curbstrips in my usual town.

2nd target of the hunt was the Mercury dime, the 15th target of the day was the middle Rosie in the picture....only found $1.63 in clad and a single 1948 Wheat.

The "toned Rosie"? Dropped by my local Coinstar and it was sitting in the reject tray with a bunch of sticky gum around it and a Zinc penny

My 2022 totals are just starting!!! HH and GL.

Glad to see you got out Bull. Congrats on the shiny, wheat and clad. Off to a great start. A little reject tray silver is always a bonus. Good luck, Mark

I try JAK...you just never know but my local Coinstar has been very good to me over the last 1 1/2 years, usually scoring at least 1 or 2 silver a month. Good luck in 2022!

Ahh, sweet silver! Congrats!
I always check those Coinstar machines too. I think I found some rejected clad once and that was enough to keep me hooked.

Congrats on the first silver of the year Paul. The dirt is nice and lively now after all of the precipitation. Glad to hear you're feeling better. Hope you beat your annual silver goal by a lot.

Great running start to the year, Buell! I didn’t do nearly as many curb strips as usual last year - I’ve gotta get back into them again…they really are productive. I’m adding “more curb stripping” to my New Year’s Resolution list!

And nice CoinStar silver score! I always check my local CS too, but I’ve yet to find silver…plenty of Wheats and other random interesting finds though.
