I saw a $9 bill once at a gas station. Someone passed it off when the attendant was busy with several customers. The manager taped it on the wall behind the cash register. It was a shoddy cut and paste job, but it worked that one time for somebody,

I have a few of both in my collection. Those old coins have something unique about them, If they could only talk. I've often wondered who handled them. Esp, the silver dollars.

How many people know that pants didn't all have pockets and folks use to poke holes in coins and sew them into their clothes to carry them!
Or,if something cost a half a cent,they would cut a penny in half to pay for it?
