Junk silver post and Coinstar

The other day I dropped a jar of coins off at a local Coinstar location. Now, I thought I had gleaned all the good stuff out of this particular jar, but I was wrong. Which was a good thing and something which might be of interest to you.

Most of my change was taken and tabulated by the Coinstar machine. But a number of coins were not:

- Foreign coins (naturally).
- New dollar coins (the big gold ones).
- Old dollar coins (the Susan B's).

And... drum roll please... a 1943 Washington quarter and two Roosevelt dimes, both pre-1964.

Does this mean that Coinstar automatically screens and kicks out pre-1964 junk silver coins? Don't run out and drop some Barber dimes in a Big Green Coinstar machine to find out, but it is a good thing to know if it is true.

Hey maybe Coinstar should fix that particular little bug? I mean can you imagine how much loot they are walking away from?
