    Amazing Coinstar Find

    I always check the coin return in the Coinstar machine at Walmart. Occasionally I will find a silver Rosie. I have my wife and brother doing it now too. Today my brother sent me this text:

    Walmart is known for the crazy things you can find walking around in there but an 1845 dime is pretty sick!

    Favorite finds I have made:
    1,000+ silver coins

    It looks like a coin that has been in a fire. I couldn’t figure it out.

    I've checked a LOT of those reject trays and rarely find much of note, but that seated is amazing! Some minor gunk removal and you have a great showpiece, not to mention after looking it up on PCGS, that's at least a $400 coin!
