The bank employer was get mad at the machine and was very happy when it was all over. ☹️ 

The island's only bank won't even let me run my coins through their machine.. they took one look at the bags of dodgy looking coins and told me I had to join the bank before they'd think about it.. also at the pub and some shops they'll only accept corroded coins when they can see the Queen's head.. ☹️

I’ve still got over $100 in damaged $1 and $2 coins……I think they can be exchanged by banks?

The $1 & $2 coins are removed from Carol heap and go in mine. Tony the total that you have to be counted is some where between 100 and 50 coins so that is not problem like the 2000+ that had to be counted by the bank machine.

Nice haul!!

I used to use my dug U.S. clad coins for bridge toll.  I'd hand them five bucks of quarters, dimes and nickles and they'd want me to wait there while they took their time to count them (not).  Told the bridge toll trolls that they were getting paid to count the coins and I was not, and if it was short, they could bill me 🙂

I also started taking them to the casino and they don't care, they're happy to take your money 😂

I think that a lot of us focus on finding the jewelry and just toss the clad in a bucket. When we get around to cleaning the coins it is often surprising how much we have accumulated. I think I currently have over 100 pounds of coins that need cleaning.

Nice pile — I just took in over 1K worth of coins.  I’ll never let the pile/bucket get that big again.  Sad news I lost lost several bucks to the Zincolns being unusable.  Grrrrrrrrrrr.
