Another COINucopia For Val

Things were poppin' for Val's Future Pennyillionaire Fortune this week!
On SATURDAY, June 25, I came out of the Gas Station Chicken Store and saw a surprise.
Good thing I didn't pull forward a bit more in T-Hoe, or go to town at a different time, when the sun didn't highlight my surprise.

It was a 2009 face-down penny, showing Lincoln sitting on a log on its backside.

From there to where I was obviously meant to be, the Backroads Casey's. I only go there if the parking is conducive to T-Hoe's large-door opening.

Sadly, I had to choose a line! The floor on the other side, at the left register, had something else silver. I took it for a nickel, so stayed in my line.

It was a 2005 face-down dime, ripe for the picking.

MONDAY, June 27, I was over in Sis-Town to deposit a check for Hick from Back-Creek Neighbor Bev. I was meant to be there!

OH MY GOSH! It was SO HARD to get this picture. I was way back in line when I spotted my treasure. The guy who was rightfully ahead of me, and stepped up after this dude, would not stop dancing around! It was like he had ants in his pants! So I kept this long-distance view from the back of the line.
It was a face-down 1998 dime, AND a 1969 face-down penny! A two-fer!
But wait! From there, I was headed home, and stopped by the School-Turn Casey's. Where I made another discovery on the way in!
You have to be careful taking pictures near somebody else's car! They might think you're some ne'er-do-well up to shenanigans. But all I wanted was a picture of this penny, waiting there just for me, under the 9 on the license plate.

It was a face-down 2019 penny, lurking under a bumper, quite photogenic.  ______________________________________________________________________
But wait! I wasn't done! On my regular errand day, THURSDAY, June 30, I made another discovery at the Sis-Town Casey's.
So many people, so little respect for a line! I was waiting my turn, allowing others to go ahead who had been standing on the other side of an aisle. I don't know who was first. But then, a clerk opened up the register on the right, where my penny was located under the candy! So I selflessly allowed others behind me to go ahead to the cashier on the left.

It was a heads-up 1990 penny, waiting for me to claim it. Welcome to the shirt pocket, Abe.

  1. Are those people really tall or are the counters set low? I found a five cent piece in my jacket pocket, but since it was mine already that doesn't count does it.

    1. I never thought about it. I guess that counter is pretty low. The people did not seem like giants to me! Better to find your own money than to find none at all!

    1. Heh, heh! See how hard I sigh... when I don't find my pennies!
