    Found Money 2012-2014

    So, since moving to the CSRA from Germany in Aug 2012, we've found $127.48 USD layin' around in America, no metal detector or other tool used (Jewelry, Silver coins and other Ace 250 finds are not included in this)

    a twenty
    a ten
    three ones and a dollar coin
    $43.50 in quarters
    $31. in dimes
    $5.90 in nickels
    $13.08 in pennies

    In addition, we've also found an AAFES .25 cent POG, .51 Euro cents, 1000 Korean Won bill, two Canadian dimes and a Chucky Cheese token. All of it found simply by looking at the ground.

    Americans really are to lazy to pick up pocket change, and it baffles me to this day. A penny saved is a penny earned...

    Hello Airborne1092,

    It pays to be aware of your surroundings. I have a 6 quart “Tupperware” container filled with clad coins found (5 years) without my metal detectors, perhaps one day I will go through it.

    Regards,

    Yeah, and when we aren't being lazy, we do often lose money the old fashioned way.

    The first night in Augusta, GA we were staying at a Super8 and we found an ashtray dumped in the parking lot with about .60 in the pile. A penny is a penny and it's sad that folks would take the time to remove their ashtray to dump it, but not to pull it out of their pocket to spend it. I always get stares and signs in the store when I use change to pay exactly, or to round up so I DON'T get change back. SMH
    My Grandma always says "money spends."
