Walked past a coin star that must have hated nickels. Got about $2 worth of nickels in the reject tray.

I'm glad someone posted to this thread, I was looking for it, and couldn't remember the name of it...

My son called me from school this past weekend to let me know he got a 1962 quarter from the change machine at the laundromat. He ran another $35 (everything he had on him) through the machine but it was the only one he scored.

While getting my morning coffee I got a 1930 Canadian penny in my change. I didn't realize it was from Canada at first since it didn't have the lizard queen on it.
