Found a Torqued Quarter and a Penny in the Street

I needed a little break from editing this morning, so I took a little walk around the outside of my complex. I spotted this quarter in the street as cars were zooming by. I waited for a break in traffic and scooped it up. Look at it! It's bent and torqued. I have no idea what someone had to do to get it in this shape! 

Then I turned the corner and found this penny in the street, near the sidewalk. 

Yippee! I plan to talk a longer walk later. Maybe I'll get lucky again and find some more deformed coins!

UPDATE:  I took a walk this evening and found another penny in a parking lot!
