Walking into Walmart yesterday and as always I look in the rejection I saw a silver dime in there from 15ft away you can tell by the color and some Canadian coins also.

I always look in the reject return too. Usually find foreign coins and sometimes silver usually in the form of dimes.

I’m always checking as well but it seems so is everyone else. I still have an old “Security” jacket somewhere, maybe I should get a chair and sit there all day! I’m retired right? Nobody but me checking the slot!!!!!!

Nice score!

I used to check pay phones for change (remember those?)
These days I'll check the water refill station at the local Ranch Market, everyone forgets to push the button for their change after filling up. Sometimes I'll hit for fifty cents.

I was in the local grocery store the other day ,,, I always walk by the coinstar machine . Usually it seems the manager or assitant manager is always eyeballing me when I go in ,, but I'm always looking to see who's looking at me when I go by the machine . I'm not sure if they can accuse me of stealing if I take change from the machine . Anyway ,, walked the other day ,, no body's around to eyeball me ,, so I look in the slot , and theres a small handfull of change in there , scoop it out ,, count it up when I get outside ,, no silver ,, but got 53 cents . Just more money in my change jars at home .

I had an associate at Walmart ask me why I got the money out of the Coin Star. I told her the way I see it, the original owner abandoned it, Coin Star rejected it and it doesn't belong to Walmart any more than a coin laying on the floor. When I told her that I put all the clad coins in a jar until early November, then roll them up and take them to the bank where I deposit them in my checking account. Then I round up the total to $250.00 and go buy toys for underprivileged children. I donate the toys to what ever charity the car club I am a member of supports that year. She wished me good luck!

Unfortunately I lost 2 huge supermarket chains in my area. I use to hit the Coinstar daily. Had a couple of jackpots. One time, I thought someone robbed the coins out of a fountain.
There were wet coins in the hopper, a cup full on the shelf and of course the return shoot. I hung around for a bit to see if anyone was coming back to claim. Nope. So I filled my pockets
I dont recall how much but the best Ive ever done was somewhere around $10. Another jackpot was when there was a sign on the machine that said 'out of order'. I said, 'shucks' til I looked in the
return shoot and it was loaded with clad. Yep another $10 day.

One of the funniest jackpots was when someone decided to stack a bunch of rejected quarters in the back of the hopper. Cant recall how many silver quarters and Canadian silver were back there.
I think btwn 6-8. That surely was the best silver day at Coinstar.

Seems as though everyone checks Coinstar nowadays. Finding any coins is very rare. Couple a places to check that hide coins. Left up the basket as coins get stuck under the handle. Then swipe the inside of the front of the basket. Coins are out of site in that location. Wont find a lot but something better than nothing.

One time at the local coin star I checked it and there was about $2.50 still in the hopper and a pile of change in the rejection no silver though!

Oddities in State Laws:
One can be charged with theft for possession of lost/stolen or abandoned property. All it takes is for one person, with sufficient knowledge of the description of the lost/abandoned property, to say it is theirs and the burden of innocence shifts solely on to you.
If you turn it into the local law enforcement it then sits in the property room until the prescribed time has passed.
Trust me, you will be frowned upon for bringing it in by the Property Custodian because of the paperwork it generates.
Catch 22.

That’s why I’d never do it!
