    Can only guess what happened to this 2008 Canadian nickel. The obverse is actually brittle enough to flake off. Fire damage perhaps?

    Canadian nickels do show up in slots now and then but mostly they get caught internally.

    George VI - 1943 (9/19/11, amazing find)

    Elizabeth II - 1975, 1978, 1979, 1981-2016

    Kudos to whoever can ID this. It's 2.4 grams and some elongation makes it slightly larger than a US cent.

    Cleaning and clearing out stuff enabled me to find my coin records that have been missing since a 2017 move.

    Since we're not able to edit posts after a few days has passed I'm gonna update my totals with new posts.

    My foreign "found in slots" total is now officially 32, with the addition of:

    ARUBA
    BAHAMAS
    BELGIUM
    BERMUDA
    FRANCE
    IRAN
    ITALY
    JAMAICA
    MOROCCO
    SINGAPORE
    SWITZERLAND

    Dawn breaks, the clouds parted, and then...





    I probably won't be able to go until Saturday the 6th, at the soonest, that's if I feel comfortable going at all.

    What would you do?

    On second thought, maybe I'll wait awhile:

    The beginning of the end?



    The Good News - Despite covid-19 numbers rising slightly locally, I ventured to the venerable El Cortez today for the first time in three months. Was good to see the ol' place again and while change was to be expected, I didn't anticipate it to take this form...

    The Bad News - Their previous 34 coin-op nickel machines (to my knowledge, the last remaining 5-cent slots in Vegas) have now dwindled to just 12. A previous bank of 10 nickel machines has become a social distancing set of 5 quarter machines in the same space. Three other banks of 8 back-to-back machines are now two carousels of 6 machines each. Getting a seat proved challenging and required hip-checking a grandma (just kidding) but I was able to search about $50 and nabbed this nifty 1949-S, but nothing more.

    Perhaps the eventual loosening of social distance restrictions will bring back the missing machines but I give it a 50/50 shot that by the end of 2020 nickel slots will disappear for good. If that happens, it'll be the first time a denom has been retired from casinos since pennies were eliminated in 2012. And it'll be a sad, sad day.

    Bad news indeed! Kinda sounds like my new stomping grounds...seems like very few banks have coin counters, and the ones that do charge at least a 4% fee.

    Getting rid of the nickel slots would be a bummer.
