    I brought home a pin that the owner had no keys for. Drilled out the coin door locks and inside were several VHS tapes with "Private" written on them in sharpie .
    I thought, oh my ! someone's home made sex tapes so I rustled up a VCR from a friend and was prepared to see some homemade erotica......not so much. The VCR tapes labeled Private were filled with Taped episodes of General Hospital soap operas from the earl 1980's What is so private about that, needless to say I was disappointed.

    I brought home a Bally On Beam several weeks ago and all over the bottom board were a bunch ( 46 ) of silver dimes .

    I found this a bit odd not the money part but the Silver dimes .

    This is a 1969 machine and they stopped issuing silver dimes in 1964 . Were silver coins still in circulation and being used in the late 60's and early 1970's

    Is this an unusual occurrence or have others found similar things .
