Urgent Coinstar advanced report for March 2020: Eureka!


“Black birds tend to like Shiny things.” ~ The Bloody Raven

I am early for this exciting update March Report as I will have a more comprehensive quarterly report on my findings on my search progress of my local Change handling machines. And this is also a bit of a test for my first Hive parallel post.

I am happy to report the following yet abbreviated findings and get right to the point.

Only part of the March findings.

My favorite grocery store’s Coinstar find has yielded me my first silver coin! Along with the typical junk indicating that the coins originated from a neglected coin jar by the odd items dumped into the sorting tray and obviously rejected. Aside from the pill battery and rubber washer I need not indicate the paperclip and stale popcorn kernel.


2014 2 Dollar Polar Bear Reverse, BiMetallic Elizabeth II 4th Portrait, KM# 1257, Schön# 945 Mintage of 16,305,000

1972 1 Cent Lincoln Memorial Reverse, Bronze, Obverse: Lincoln portrait, Liberty 1972, In God we trust, KM# 201, Mintage of 2,933,255,000


The Silver coin

My Silver coin Find: 1876 - 1967 10 Cents Mackerel
Reverse: 1876 - 1967 10 Cents Mackerel Circulating Commemorative coin
2.33 g, Silver fineness 0.800
18mm Diameter, 1.21 mm thickness
reference KM# 67, Schön# 69

Obverser: Queen Elizabeth II, DG Regina
Mintage of 62,998,215
Edge: Milled

There is a particular footnote as pertaining to the silver fineness composition of this coin. The silver fineness changed from 0.800 to 0.500 past the halfway point of coin production for similar reasons when the 1968 10 cents was started in the early fall of 1967.

While the majority of 1967 10 cents are 0.800 some are 0.500, unfortunately there are no distinguishing marks to indicated whether the coin is either .800 or .500 without testing.

One simple proven test is the weight: 0.800 silver is 2.33g UNC and 0.500 silver is 2.18g UNC

The @stokjockey test
Accounting for wear, this coin is identified as 0.800 Silver

It may be just a dime, but I am so pumped up at this marvelous find!


So do yea ‘ave a Coinstar Machine near ye? Tell me wha’ Yea plundered from it or any other Change generatin’ vendin’ machine.
