I suggest you tumble clean all those coins, and ask to make an appointment at your bank. Tell them that you dug them and cleaned them, and need some time with a counting machine. I bet if you get an appointment, they won't have as much attitude. Be aware that too many rejected coins may cause the machine to stop, so an attendant has to clear and restart it. This usually happens when I rerun the rejects. Good luck. Coins are heavy. Too many at one time becomes a burden.
