Where is the scariest place you have coin roll hunted?
How much does that piece of silver mean to you? List the scariest places you've hunted (you don't have to specify a city or town) or share a story of something that happened to you.
I haven't really been to any scary places but some of the places around DC I have been to have a police officer sitting at a desk in the lobby, not a security guard but an actual cop.

I live in new Hampshire do not too many scary places. But I've done a box of quarters in Manchester in the parking lot, but I also had my gun with me so..

Mangling rolls since '09
Paterson and Plainfield, NJ, without my firearm.
Drove through, stopped at a Wells Fargo, and got the hell out.
According to this list, it's #74 on the most dangerous places to live in America...
Of course, Chester, PA, which is about 25 minutes from me, is #2, and there's a TD Bank right off I95 there, that I dump at approximately once a month. There's a cop stationed outside the bank at all times, though, and it's nestled in a college campus, plus the fact I'm very familiar with the area, makes it feel a fraction as dangerous as Paterson did.
EDIT: Oh, and the fact I can C&C helps.

I was in my car in the parking lot for a local community college a few weeks ago going through a bunch of dimes and listening to the baseball game. It's summer break, so I was the only one around and could see all the entrances and exits. A sheriff's patrol car pulls into the lot and stops behind me, and he comes up to my window like he pulled me over. I was a little worried that I'd be arrested (trespassing?), my car would be towed and my coins would disappear from impound.

Detroit Michigan on 8 mile Road. Asked for loose halves and got some silver. All the tellers were behind bullet proof glass, and only one person at a time could be in there.

I delivered pizzas for years in a pretty violent city. We were the only shop in the city that would deliver anywhere, so most of our runs were to the worst streets imaginable. We wouldn't close down to 2-4am, I'd be going up to doors in the middle of the night in areas of the city were murders and robberies frequently happen with a wad of cash in my pocket. Didn't carry a gun or nothing. A lot of people I worked with got robbed at one point or another. Anyways, I'll CRH anywhere, nothings as bad as that job. Glad I moved up in the world or who knows what could've happened

Off topic but years ago, in my area, 2 pizza delivery guys were making a delivery to an abandoned house that 2 men were hanging out in. When they showed up, the 2 punks shot them both dead. They wanted to know what it felt like to kill someone.

That's probably the scariest situation i've ever encountered.

East Cleveland. All the banks out there you have to go through two sets of doors. Only one will open at a time and more often than not there is an armed guard in lobby.

I've pulled up to addresses that had ordered pizza only to find them abandoned and bordered up and the phone line dead. Didn't get out of my car on those ones! scary stuff.
