Wow, FANTASTIC Story!

I tend to love these kind of fairy tale, happy ending, down-on-his-luck, beat-the-odds kinda stories. And this one delivers. I'm happy for the fella. Bet they aren't laughing at him now Wink

True, I don't either, however, here's the flip side to that...

I can sure as shit is brown tell you I haven't found anywhere NEAR $21,000 worth of stuff since 2011 (when that fella found his coin). If you average it out, that's $7,000 per year. So, even if he spends an hour or two per night looking through change, he's doing a LOT better on hourly pay than I am! Lol.

That's cool, but I didn't see anything special about the penny in the picture.

Joe,

That's a good way to look at it. I sometimes feel the same way deathray does but I've seen some guys on YouTube have pretty good luck at it. Maybe when I retire. I'm always peeking at my change coins though. Force of habit. My dad was always looking for that 43 copper and the 3 legged Buff. LOL!!!
