good kid!

I just visited my 1st Starbucks & bought a cold drink on a scorchingly hot day in the midwest. I bought my drink & received 22 change. One of the dimes looked old. Sure enough the edge was a solid whitish color. Scored a 51 Roosie. Asked clerk if he had any more old dimes & he said no.

Very nice! It was like getting a discount on my 1st Starbucks purchase!

I have found a few silver dimes, 2 silver quarters and a 40% half while working register at the gas station.

Also been getting a good bit of foreign coins. Found a 2008 Aussie 5 cent piece. It looks funny with a hedgehog on the back.

Hey Shattered, that's not a Hedgehog on the back of your '08 Australian 5 center. It's an Echidna.

Found 2 '68 halves in one of the registers at work yesterday. Paid a dollar for over a troy quarter ounce of silver. That's the way I like it!
