    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.

    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."
