Cashing in: 20 years of change
Wisconsin man does his part to fight the national coin shortage by cashing in change he's been saving for 20 years.
It's not every day someone pulls up to the bank with a truckload of money. In fact, getting to this day took Jim Houghton, 20 years. My son, when he was born, got a peckers pigment. So every day when I came home, I stopped for a cup of coffee every morning. I just put my change in their, um It started with my wife and I think, and hey will put it down on the house and we've continued to just kind of let it grow with coins in short supply right now, Jim loaded up the truck with all that pocket change and drove from while a toasted of Rayfield North Shore Bank is counting change for free right now, hoping to get more coins back into circulation So that piggy bank, plus bucket after bucket of cash is about to get added up. After 20 years of emptying his pockets, Jim Holten has no idea what he's in for. I'm not hoping for anything. Um, my guess is it's got to be a couple 1000. Um, but I don't have anything to base it on. Not a clue
