    I’m a little annoyed. Someone slipped me a Hungarian 200 Forint coin instead of a 2 Euro coin. I only found out when I tried to spend it and the cashier caught it. So I was doubly embarrassed. (200F is only worth 0.64 Euros.)

    Even though it's a nickel clad and Bicentennial quarters aren't exactly rare, San Francisco mint marks aren't found in the wild very much around here. And I don't find very many Bicentennial quarters in this condition.

    Somebody broke that out of a set. Desperate times breed desperate measures.

    I have a few coins and bills I've received as change that I have wondered why they were in circulation. Either desperation or somebody getting into the stash in grandma's dresser drawer would be most likely. Either way, it always makes me feel a bit bad.
     
  7. You may be right. I did get it in my change at a Dollar Tree store.
