    I guess I don't see the replies as a new trend, however, there certainly has been a marked increase in the volume of rare machine doubling hiding in plain sight as DDO's and parking lot finds in the past couple of years.

    Sorry @braddick, this thread went off the rails fast!

    Sorry about that, you can have it back now.

    When I was growing up (kinda still am) everybody would pick up money in parking lots, floors, where every they found money laying around. These days people don't want to bend over for a Lincoln cent because some know they can't get back up and they left their life alert necklace at home. Picking up money laying around makes cents to me. However, there have been safety alerts about not picking up folder paper currency due to it possibly being laced with fentanyl. These days picking up change could be dangerous do the drugs and pranksters .

    Yeah maybe I should get some Drain-O :s

    Now that you made us look at it, you need to use that picture to sell the coin on eBay.

    Glad you didn’t ruin the coffee thread with that.

    They found me spazzing out in my drawers in the CVS parking lot with a half-eaten Fentanyled Jackson.

    If you went ahead and drank a cup of coffee left on your bosses desk then you are ready for VaultBox.
