Last night I had another good night searching coins.

3,360 quarters produced one proof quarter (1999S GA), three Canadians, five US nickels, two US pennies and one Bermuda 25¢. That's the second proof quarter I've found in two days! This one is a new one and in decent shape. I guess I'm getting better at spotting the extra thick rim of proof quarters. I also found a 2009P American Samoa quarter.

3,000 dimes turned up two silvers (1945, 1961D), seven Canadians, one Bermuda 10¢, one British Caribbean Territories 10¢ (1956) and one US penny. The 1961D dime is a beauty. It looks brand new.

1,200 nickels had five Canadians (2 Ni) and one US penny. In the batch I also found a pretty good clipped nickel and one of the Canadians was a really nice looking plated steel 1944 war nickel.

3,800 pennies yielded twelve Wheats, thirty Canadians, three US dimes and a Euro 2¢ (Germany, 2003). The Wheats were:

1916, 1920, 1945, 1947, 1950D, 1951D(2), 1952, 1952d, 1953D, 1955, 1958D

Found: 3 pennies (2 outside Walgreens, 1 in Stop & Shop)

Hi, quick question. I am getting pretty into CRH (12K halves searched since early October) though I am not a CRH animal like you. Don't worry.. I live far away from you! I am still developing dump banks, and I had a question-- frequently you refer to "coin star" machines throughout your old posts, but I can't imagine you pay the fee or take the amazon gift certs... is that just generic for coin counting machine, or do you know something I don't? Thanks!

Hi. One of the banks I use previously had a Coin Star machine in their lobby that was free for customers to use. Now I only occasionally use a Coin Star machine and when I do I always get gift certificates.
