Here’s a new spudart feature: beat-up coins.
We all get ’em and find them amusing. Just how much our currency goes through from person to person. Here’s three examples of beat-up coinage.
The coin on the far left has no ridges on it. All quarters have ridges on the edge. But not this one.
The coin in the middle has been so destroyed beyond recognition. But then again, this was found on a construction site, so maybe it’s some sort of metal circle thing they use. *shrugs*
The coin on the right has craters so huge, one could mistake this quarter for the moon.
Hanging around construction sites again, Matt? I’m such a neat-freak that even my coins have to be neat. I don’t like beat up coins. I never know what to do with them though. I don’t like the idea of them being in my pocket. Have you seen those penny machines that flatten the penny and emboss them? You can usually find them at museums and attractions. 25 cents for a penny. Somebody’s making a killing!
actually this post was originally entitled “Amazing coins that change” from the “future spudart.org posts” Do ya like the pun on “change”? Get it? change, cuz it’s coins. But they also change or morph or get beat-up. Actually this should just be “Coins that Change.” Yeah, i like that. I’m gonna change it right now. So the old title of this was “beat-up coins 1, 2, 3” Now it’s “Coins that Change 1, 2, 3” Kinda funny how the 1, 2, 3 also has a double meaning. 1, 2, 3 implies that it’s part of a series. But it could also mean one, two, three, presto! the coins have changed!
wondering whether your “quarter” is a true coin [as opposed to a just a metal circle”>? the ultimate test – try to use it in a laundry machine.
oh if it was a fake quarter, i wouldn’t want to pass it off as a real quarter.
