The Silver Dime

I upgraded my Blogger account to the new Beta version. I have noticed that it is easier to post pictures, and that you don't have to wait a long time for your post to be published. But what I hate, is that for some reason the site won't remember me, so I am stuck putting in my entire username and password in EVERY time!

This week, most of my finds were found at Coinstar machines. At Schnuck's, I found 1 very shiney new 2006 penny in the parking lot, and then in the Coinstar machine I found 2 very dirty pennies and a slug. Yesterday, I found 1 quarter in the vending machine in our apartment work-out facility.

Check out a picture of the slug that I found. I can see why it was rejected, because it is just a bit smaller than a quarter, so it is a poorly made slug, or might not be a slug at all. I like to think that people are trying to rip off the Coinstar machine with slugs, since they are evil by taking %7!!

Late in the week, I had to stop by the UPS store to drop off some eBay packages. The UPS store is attached to a Dieberg's (Another St. Louis Grocery store chain). I am there a few times a week, as I have a good number of eBay items to send, and I always walk by their Coinstar machine. This was the first time that I found anything, and it was a solid find, a 1960 Silver Dime.

Before this race started, I didn't know a thing about silver dimes, but Chris got me into them and taught me how to spot them. Now I check the edges of all my dimes. As you can see from the pictures below, I put it next to a normal dime and you can see the edge of the silver dime is totally silver, unlike current dimes. So Chris gets the assist by making me aware of the silver dime, and how to spot them.

Speaking of silver dimes, check out this article I found while I was doing a bit of reading on silver dimes. I think I would have noticed the double struck quarter or penny, but I did not know about the 1982 dime, 1943 penny or the 1965 dime. Good info to have for the rest of this race!

I also must add a story that I forgot about during my last post. One of the quarters was found while I was going through the security screening. The man in front of my dropped the quarter and didn't notice it, and walked through the metal detector. I figured it was now lost and could be picked up. I was still getting all my things adjusted, and I guess that I placed it on top of my jacket, because when I moved the basket of stuff onto the conveyor belt, the quarter fell and made a pretty loud noise. At which point the TSA lady, picked it up and handed it back to me!

Total for the Week - $0. 38
Total for the Race - $204.12

Just remember to cash in those things by weight in silver, not actual face value! I've found a whole lot of silver coins this year and I cash them in at silver value (seven times face value) and add it in to my daily change finds.

I put in a Freedom of Information Act request with the TSA to learn more about the coins that get left behind at security checkpoints. I hope to hear back soon and post my findings.

Nice pictures and nice find. I like the new beta format as well but I have the same problem you are having . . . the computer won't remember me and I have to log in each time. That's no good at all.

Anonymous - Good idea. Although I only have 2 silver dimes, so I might have a hard time finding somebody who is willing to buy them for $1.40.

Brian - Freedom of Information Act! That is one of the best ideas I have heard in some time! You must update us with what you hear about the security checkpoint change.

Chris - Good to know I'm not the only one with password issues. Thanks for the nice comments on my pictures! That picture of the dime was solid!
