Also found 32USD in the parking lot. Turned it in to the police. After 6 months if no one claims it I get to keep it.

Good on you for turning in the $$$, not many folks would do that.
The little silver fish looks kind of different (older)
Good hunt.

Thanks pepperj, Yeah thats a lot of money for a student to lose. The fish doesnt look mass produced. And it was deep. For scale the coin that it is sitting on is the size of a US one cent( lincoln cent).

That's small, wonder if you did a catch and release it would grow? 🤣
What's the average minimum wage for a student?
Just trying to get a sense on the loss.

Interesting finds. The notes are Taiwanese in New Taiwan Dollar (TWD) denominations. I see 900 TWD which would b a little over $32 (USD).

Yep and The minimum wage is about 160 per hour. Thats a big loss. Hopefully it gets returned to the owner.

LOL or maybe there is a school of silver fish in the filed. That money is about 6 hours of pay.
