Coins that Change 1, 2, 3

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.

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!

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.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
