My Dad's Lucky Slot Machine

Our short term plan is to return to Kansas for the school year and so a few weeks ago my Dad and I took a load of stuff down to our storage space in Lawrence. While we were driving back we took a break at a way station in Iowa and as I was buying some vending machine snacks I noticed that the change machine accepted large denomination bills and gave out $1 coins.  

My Dad is a numismatist, a.k.a a coin collector, and so this was a treasure trove as it is hard to find stores that give out the coins in their change.  He keeps every state quarter he comes upon and so this was a chance to get many of the presidential dollar coins all at once.  So it then became a slot machine that you really couldn't loose at.  $5 went in and $5 came out, repeat.  As you can see from the second photo, I think it made his day.
