Cashed in Some Coins

After detecting, everything gets cleaned. The vintage, silver and "collectible" coins get saved. These are the leftovers.

Today they got cashed in, and dumped into the CoinMaster sorter. Total of $10.87 in cash, coming back.

They're about half and half from the Garrett GTI2500 and the Teknetics Omega 8000. Plenty enough for a banana split, cuppa coffee, and new batteries.

The CoinMaster rejected another 27 coins because they were too chewed up. Some are bent, others are cut.

Question: What do you do with coins like that?

Cheers,

Joe

I take mine to my bank and they take them. The rotten zinc's I just throw away, however. HH jim tn

The bank will exchange any currency that is damaged beyond use... but they don't like to do it.

Yeah, they do moan a little, but I don't dump a pile on them either. As ole mudpuppy used to do, file em, hammer them and squeeze em with a pliers. HH jim tn

Cashed in some more today into the CoinStar sorter. $1.92 in the pocket (after CoinStar kept its 10 percent).

One thing I thought was a quarter, turned out to be a token for "King Arthur's Amusement Castle". I looked it up, and found that they used to be in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. It was found here in a park in Florida -- somebody had it in their pocket, from NJ to FL?

You never know what the next "beep" will bring, and you never stop learning new things. What a great hobby.

Cheers,

Joe
