$777.77 I like 7s
I'm not to sure how much is there but you really sld go threw at least the quarters and dimes. Anything older than 1965 is 90 percent silver and much more valuable than face value...like 1.50 a dime and quarter around 4.50. Also may have some rarer coins worth money. I'd definitely pull the silver tho as its going to go way up over the next 5 or so years.
Verbal communication with the bank confirms that the coin machine is indeed operational today...
Oh damn, I was only off by $62.15. You had a little higher quarter ratio than I expected.
For reference, if that 99-pound bag had been ALL quarters, it would have been worth just shy of $2,000. It looked like it was almost but not quite half quarters... so the ratio of dimes (lightweight!) vs pennies (heavier but worthless!) and Nickels (like a quarter but also worthless!) was the real wildcard.
Fun diversion, thanks!
I wonder what the 89 rejected coins were?
Perhaps tokens, dirty, damaged, foreign coins?
11,893 coins is quite a haul.
The 89 rejected coins were put through a few times...only 17 were ultimately not accepted totaling $2.16
Thanks for participating
Well.............since the numbers I picked for this guessing game (which was a pretty fn cool thread btw..) weren't spot on................ maybe my picks for tonight's Powerball will be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My First guess, which I changed and my second guess,when totalled up together was the exact final count !
Quoted from cosmokramer:
This took about 4 years to accumulate, my wife and I both tossing in loose change at the end of the day.
I will post the weight on friday night and then post the final tally on Saturday.
The bank has a counting machine (I just need to call ahead and make sure it is working) and dont charge a percentage if you have an account there.
Avg of .86 cents per day added over the 4 years.
That was fun. I was only $128.25 off.
I remember years back I had two Growlers full of coins and I cashed them in to go to the casino for my buddy's bachelor party, it got me over $900...
Your picture looked somewhat similar in size..
Quoted from DanQverymuch:
Has a winner been declared? (Not me, I didn't even guess.)
I was hoping someone else would do the heavy lifting and declare themselves winner, but since that didn't happen I will look back and declare a winner when I have some time...
Quoted from jawjaw:
What are you going to do with the money?
Our cruise booking guy called with a last minute deal one a 7 day cruise that we couldnt pass up...the Missus and I are heading to Cabo again...
