Deja Vu For These COINS, Two

Limited success this week in bagging the elusive penny! It was literally a repeat of last week! On SUNDAY, October 3, I was pleased to spot a penny waiting for me in the entryway of Country Mart.

I didn't want to hurt business by ample-rumpusing those entering after me, so I walked past the penny and turned to get the picture. Those who'd already filled their cart were unlikely to abandon them in horror once the ample-rumpusing commenced. There's one of the lottery machines on the left.

It was a face-down 2020 penny, so shiny and photogenic against the tile background.

THURSDAY, October 8, I was at the Sis-Town Casey's for T-Hoe's weekly gas. My preferred Pump 4 was occupied by a USPS LLV! So I had to take Pump 3. After trading in scratchers and pre-paying, I headed back to the pumps.

Perhaps you don't have Val's eagle eye. It's behind T-Hoe, in the direction of the Claddagh Irish Dance studio and pawn shop. They're separate businesses, but in the same mini mall.

Here's a bit closer view. There it is! To the left of the two tar spots. I was quite excited at first, thinking it was a quarter. Seems that Val's eagle eye is more of a hummingbird eye.

It was a face-down 1976 NICKEL! Such an endangered species in Val's Future Pennyillionaire Fortune. So special. !976 was a very good year.
That's 2 COINS, for 6 CENTS this week towards Val's Future Pennyillionaire Fortune.

  1. I like Country Mart's floor colours, but somebody needs to get down and scrub the bases of those doors and that lottery machine. Or perhaps just paint them dull black.
    I couldn't see that nickel until you showed us the actual nickel photo.

    1. Country Mart is one of the cleaner floors I tread upon!

      I try to show the general area where I first spy the coin. Otherwise, it would be boring to only see close-ups. Sometimes I have to zoom in to find it again, but at least I know about where it was located.

  2. I found a dime this week and two pennies. You are an eagle eye.

    1. I am jealous about the dime! But I don't begrudge you the pennies.
