Bring extra quarters to work whenever you find a pre-1965 quarter, switch with your own. Each pre-1965 quarter has a melt value of $4.20.
As we have discussed in other articles having a job as a cashier at a store is not glamorous and at times can be downright boring. One of the best ways we have found to pass the time and to possibly make more money is by being on the look out for old coins. Also check if it is ok with your manager first but often times they will just be happy to know their employee is actively looking at every coin while on the job and being good with money is definitely a skill they want to make sure your have as a cashier. Whenever you see a coin that is old or a bill that is old hold on to it might be worth more than “face value.”
Old quarters such as those made prior to 1965 are actually made of silver and as such have a value of the price of silver not the $.25 that the coin is really worth.
