I go around to my little neighborhood convenience store before, and the owner John is there. Nicest guy on the planet, but, MAN, can this guy talk up a storm! Makes it real awkward when I need to cut and run, and he wants to talk; sports, politics, conspiracy theories, and god only knows what else Tongue I'm in there tonight, and I've known this guy a while now, however, I've never told him I'm a detectorist. We were talking old parts of town though, and it was a beautiful segue, so, I told him I hunt. After hearing this, he tells me to wait for a second, and he goes to the back of the store. Then...

He comes back and dumps about 100 silver coins on the counter, a few of what his customers have given him in the 40 years his family has run the store. Wow!!! Morgans, mercs, buffs, mercs, halves of all kinds!!! I said; "John, people actually pay you with this stuff?". He said yes, some kids even break into their parents' coin collections to buy a bag of chips...or a Philly Blunt, lol.

He said 30, 35 years ago, his register used to be stocked everyday with mercury dimes. YOWZER!!!

Was a fun visit to the store tonight. Thanks, John!

Yep.  Some people just don't know what they are spending.  I worked at a convenience store for a little while just a couple years ago.  I caught a few silver Washingtons being handed right to me.

That`s so cool. we have an old country store here, the owner rustle also has a massive collection of silver coins. and other U.S. coins. it is amazing what some people will spend for common goods. Mr Rustle told me to pay off a store credit debt a customer brought him an entire collection of antique guns.
makes you want to open a convenience store ...
