Found the "Change" that usurping prick promised

just a personal observation here I've noticed locally anyways. Not sure if this is widespread around the Country, but I have noticed here for about the past 18 months or so I have noticed something different about the coin change I get back from say a convenience store purchase or gas station. Seems to me I'm seeing a lot, and I mean more than usual, a lot of the change I get back is of OLD money...old old coins. gotta 1914 penny and a buffalo nickel all in the same transaction the other day. I get old money back in change constantly lately. 50¢ pieces, Kennedy Dollars (post 1964-not silver), 20-30-40 year old coins constantly.

Just now dug in pocket to see what i got right now, pulled out change and right there, right now I have a 1976 & 1980 penny, a 69 quarter, and a 1979 nickel

maybe its just my weird ass that notices the dumb shit, could be all my imagination, I theory is that folks are just plain broke, so now they are breaking out the penny jars, the change jars, the sofa change, the washing machine change and starting to cash that in now. Anybody else seeing this similar scenario??...or is it just the broke ass South??

More than likely thieves are stealing coin collections from houses they break into and just spending it as regular cash, since they don;t want to wait for drugs.

All that "change" Obama promised turned out to be counterfeit. He went from most popular man on the planet to most despised. He only got re-elected because Romney was even worse.

I have a friend that works at one of our local grocery stores and I asked her about this. Yes people are spending old change. She has seen this a lot now, people spending silver dimes etc for face value when a silver dime is worth about 2 bucks! I have found silver coins in my change. I think it's all they have left is the change jar that been sitting for years!

 People are broke and kids are ripping off houses. That witch in Hansel and Gretel had a good idea. Fresh meat.

lol I got JFK half dollars from a gas station a few months ago. I asked the clerk if he knew what they were, he didn't, so I told him, then asked for the rest of the ones he had in the register as change instead of fiat dollars.

Just about everyone in my "circle" at least knows about fiat money now. Some are dumb and blindly trust the system no matter what, the rest are noid as fuck about whats going down. But still on the street, I encounter a lot of people who have no idea whatsoever.
