    I lost nearly half my supply of quarters at the peak of the coin shortage (for me) in July. I was worried I might actually run out since my bank would only give me one $10 roll per visit.

    I stopped accepting $20 and turned off my bill breaker, put up a bunch of signs (which normally are ignored), etc. Things gradually improved.

    Have been able to recover almost back to full capacity since a lot of my customers bring their own quarters.

    Have been wanting to switch to dollar coin but have not been able to find a coin drop that works for my machines. Imonex does not have a solution for me (Gen 6 Wascomats). I have been experimenting with a $30 game machine coin drop that accepts dollar coins. If anyone knows of any other solutions please let me know.
