In the top (feed) tray? or the reject slot at the bottom of the machine?
the feed tray reminds me of a beach scoop with all those holes.
Nice save and find,
I check those machines every few days,
Haven't had any finds for the last few weeks....
There are 4 different machines located near my area,
I wish I had some sort of game trail camera/ alarm system
that would alert me when people turn in there piggy banks.
