Found Money Blog: October Finders Keepers

So, I didn't realize it had been nearly a month since I last posted. My apologies! I've been busy and my found money pile didn't seem especially big so I kept delaying posting, I guess.

How about you? Did you beat me? Did you find a lot of money in the past month? I really hope so!

  • a folded over penny
  • a play coin, again, a penny
  • a carwash token
  • a Canadian 5 cent coin
