  1. Let us allow two types of the currency in the video, one small, which is required, and one large, not in trouble, nor is the mistake in the big. Thank you.

  2. Got a couple roll of dollar coins at bank today. There were a number of SBA dollars in them, and one of those was a wide rim.
    Always happy to find a variety coin
