A 2 Cent Euro Coin and $4.45 Found

The past few weeks I've found $4.45 and a 2-cent Euro coin. Not bad!

One place I found money was a little surprising. I went to our little government complex to renew my passport and saw a soda vending machine. I check just about every vending machine I walk past so this was no exception. I found 3 quarters! I had to go back the next day and I checked it again. Another 3 quarters! But since then I've gone back and nothing. Oh well.

Have you found any coins or bills lately? How much? Where did you find it? I still haven't found any paper money this year. I'm getting a tad annoyed about that.

I don't usually promote books here but a friend published her first book today! Check out Deidre Glass's novel, The Power of Water if you like fantasy and paranormal romance. I had the pleasure of reading this before it was published. It's good!

Found Money Blog: A Dime Blank on One Side, a Mexican Coin, and Lots of Coins

I found a fun coin about a week ago. It's a 1999 dime that's blank on the back side. The photo shows this coin in the very front of the picture. I found the one-sided dime in a change tray of a coin machine along with a handful of other coins. I don't get why people leave money behind. I guess so I can find it, is all I can figure.

So, I love my one-sided blank dime, but I also found a Mexican $1 coin! Yay! I also love finding foreign coins. And see the little Adidas token? I don't know what it was used for exactly but I found it in the same change tray as the dime, I think. I found the tiny little charm that is marked "hairzing" today in a parking lot. No idea what it is either but I can't leave junk on the ground. No way, no how.

Okay, I was curious. Evidently HairZing is a brand of hair products. Here are some of the HairZing combs:



       

So, along with these fun pieces I also found a lot of coins! The total is $4.57. Not a bad amount of found money for a few weeks.
