Coin Crazy

Thanks to your many years of numismatic tutoring, I am still freaky about snagging any silver quarters, wheat cents and King George cents that I come across. Since I'm back in the money business (ok, I'm a cashier at a hospital cafe'), I can tell by the clink of the coin in the person's hand if they have something worth taking a second look at. I did it the other day and came home with a 1957 silver quarter. Finds like that make my day; while the customer looks at me quizzically! I love it! lol

Re: Coin Crazy

As you might imagine, I do the same thing as I'm handling change. I find that an actual silver coin (90% silver, 10% copper to be exact) has a pleasing ring to it that non-silver coins do not. Also, silver is whiter in appearance, particularly after the "new coin shine" is gone.
