    Amazingly Lucky Gas Station Score!

    Hey all,

    So the other week I was heading out of town on vacation. I was struggling to get out of town on time and of course I had forgotten to get gas the previous day. So on my way out of town, I stopped to get gas. Went in to pay and there was a couple in front of me in line. While I was waiting, I heard the sound. And saw the cashier dump something into the drawer that went 'THUNK'. So I get up to the cashier and pay for my gas. While the drawer is open, I spy the drawer and what do I see? A 1940 Quarter staring right at me!. So I ask, "Can I get that quarter?". She goes, the old ones? And I say, yes, the old ones not knowing there were even more! So she proceeds to pick all the old ones out of the drawer and gives them to me as part of my change. She didn't care about them apparently.

    The funny part of the this is the people ahead of me, used them to buy cigarettes. They were young 20's I think. The girl even made the comment that she knew the exact amount her cigarettes cost.

    So in the end, my struggle to get out of town on time paid off. Had I been earlier or later, I probably would not have scored the biggest gas station find I've ever found.

    Wow! Great find, shows what a little silver experience can get you, by knowing that distinctive sound. That was an amazingly expensive pack of smokes - $25+ worth of silver, and I'm guessing about $7 more fiat dollars. I knew hyperinflation would set in eventually, but these guys are way ahead of the curve by paying nearly $40 for some smokes.

    My wife works in the accounting office at WalMart. She has gotten probably 100 Walking Liberty half dollars, maybe 200 silver dimes, and probably 100 other various silver coins. Not to mention all the old paper money and old nickels she has gotten out of there. They are allowed to purchase the old money from there. It's amazing what people will use for currency when they are strapped for cash.
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    Sweet Score. Gotta love finding silver in random places. I'm impressed that you were able to notice the sound of silver in a gas station. I usually try to take a peek in any cash register whenever I'm at a store but usually I cannot determine if any quarters or dimes are silver. I guess I'll get better at it with time.
