I’m not a collector, but a stacker . Here’s just a couple of shots as I was just in the secret room organizing some silver  . A Cuban from 1915, a few stacks of 1964 ( 90%)  half’s , and what looks like a 1779 ? Spanish coin that some a$$hole drilled a hole through and some random stuff .

I had a bunch of old coins, that i finally turned in last year. Got a few grand. some simply based on weight of real silver or gold. a few others as actual coins. I went to a few different places for quotes, then did a little research. surprisingly all were fair offers. 

Local shops can be very good . I have bought from large internet companies and local shops . Fractional gold has a higher premium, yet the local shop was $550 for 1/4oz Gold Eagles, when online the price was closer to $670 ,I just bought local …. Although I’m not a fractional guy .
 

a good shop where you’re a regular can pay off .

Most of my older coins are melt value.

 

The Coin Guy on YouTube is a very enjoyable site ! I may visit his shop when we head south in a bit !

Carts are locked, need a quarter to get a cart, you get it back when you return the cart.  Store doesn't have to pay someone to fetch carts. 

ShopRite here in NJ does the same. It’s amazing how much nicer their carts remain than the Weiss across the road and, like you said, you get your quarter back.

Grocery store? Pay for a shopping cart?

Like a deposit ,the carts are chained together, a quarter releases the chain until you take it back and hook the chain back up then your quarter pops out. There's never any abandoned carts in the parking lots like the stores that don't do it. There's is also never any shopping carts full of broken up concrete either...

Thanks for clarifying. But for 25 cents, I would have no problem abandoning a shopping cart LOL

Anyone in Westchester or New Fairfield/ Danbury/Ridgefield even carry a quarter? 

Ewww…..

Seems so ‘common’ to be having dirty pocket change.

Sounds like a Whole Foods shopper….or Pittsford Wegmans . ALDIs shoppers are price conscious,they’ll get their quarter back for sure ! 
 

I had to go to the Public Safety building today, and parked right across the street, a bit away from the on street parking .

Well I had to wait about a half hour for the guy to take my photo, and thought well a parking ticket would be worth the convenience of that spot .

Lots of westchester and ridgfield charge for parking. Coins or the app are accepted, some stores validate it if you shop and buy stuff.
