Found Money Totals $1.60

This past week I found $1.60 in coins. One day I found 71 pennies behind some businesses in a strip mall. It was so weird. It was almost like someone took a handful of coins (because 71 pennies is a handful!) and tossed them in the air. Oh well, my gain!


Other places I found money was along the side of the road, on the floor of stores, in parking lots.

In this found money I found a 1939 wheat penny. Yay! Love finding old coins.
