Good point, but it defeats the purpose of having the currency rolled. I also found out a trick. Ever wonder why some rolls are paper while some are plastic? Paper rolls are customer rolls, like Burger King, you, and, I, etc. that are put back into circulation. Plastic rolls come from The Fed, and never should contain foreign currency, because the machine(s) reject anything unusual or out-of-round. Ever get one of those, because they are just as bad? I do try to request 'fed only quarters', but the bank gets a limited amount in.

I assume you're getting rolls of quarters for laundry? Ever think to maybe go to a car wash and feed 10s in? Lol

I've not once gotten anything but quarters out of those

Actually, I go sometimes to a laundromat for coins. When desperate and banks closed, I have asked an attendant at Speedway gas station. We BS sometimes, and he'll usually do it for me. Yes, for laundry, and today, I got two so-far good rolls from the bank inside Wal-Mart.

You might get your off coins together and see if a lot of them is worth anything at all on ebay...?

Yeah, but nothing really special. Not even fancy coins equivalent to our state quarters. I figure next time in Canada, I'll remember my coins. But, the Jamaica quarter I might post-up. Maybe a collector will want it. Thing looks and feels like a regular US quarter.
