    Ah...regrets....

    A couple years ago I worked at a rec center, and we had a few soda and snack machines. We had to take out the change and count/roll it. At that time, there were some of us there that were finding all of our state quarters there for our collections, but we never kept any of the older coins. I remember finding old dimes, nickels and quarters, but we were only interested in the new quarters. I wish I had known about silver coins back then. Hindsight sucks sometimes! :P

    i think i'm going to spend a dateless buffalo or two in the soda machine at school tomorrow. their just sitting here in my safe and i know the feeling of finding an old coin in circulation. i want more people to feel that. thats why from now on, i will spend at least 1 older coin in vending machines at least once a month. might even spark more coin collectors or coin roll hunters!

    Or buy some 'Nic-A-Date" (http://www.kaymarie.com/coincleaner.html) find out the date, and then spend it.

    Here, you can borrow my Wayback Machine. You may need to use it to find out what a Wayback Machine is, though. LOLName:  wayback_machine_large_small1.jpg

    If you are going to do this it may never be caught. Those guys have long routes, they fill the machine, empty the coin box, fill the change tubes and move on to the next machine.

    If I was going to do this I would spend it at a 7-11 type of store or leave it in the "need one/take one" coin dish I have seen at some of these places.

    But, I am Scottish and wouldn't give up a hard earned buffalo and would probably spot that coin in the bowl and replace it with a brand new shiny "bob hope" nickle
