I’m not against junk, it has its place. If you’re one that collects change in a jar or coffee can and then cashes them in ever 6 or 8 months, do yourself a favor and take 20 minutes and see if you’ve got any Pre 1970 and especially pre 1965 coins. If you do, you just hit a little jackpot.
The future is an uncertain place, however one thing is absolutely certain. The current economic system can’t function as it is, for a lot longer.
