    Fake coins are so easy to spot if you know what you’re looking for. There’s a reason old school cash registers had marble counters on them.

    To spot fakes. Cashiers would tap the coins on the marble. Fakes would make a different sound than real ones.

    The entire counter didn't need to be marble. You've never seen an old cash register? The marble part is just a slab above the tray.

    Obviously I'm no Parapsychologist and you'd have to know the history of the cash register to make any sort of educated guess. But, in general terms, you'd probably look for an individual that died tragically. The obvious ones are an employee killed in a robbery or in some kind of department store fire/accident.

    It’s marble and there to keep the ghosts in the register when the drawer is opened. If the marble wasn’t there then the ghosts would just fly out when someone paid with coins.

    I’ve definitely got a haunted one somewhere then. My grandfather owned a lumber shop that burned down in a train derailment/explosion in the late 70s. He was working that day and he and his right hand man ran back into the burning shop to get the register and the ledger book. I think 2 or 3 of his employees died in the fire. My family still has the old register somewhere - need to find that.

    No. The tanker car explosion was less than 100 feet from the shop. My grandfather was out back when it happened, and tried to go back in to save his employees/anything else he could. He died earlier this year, but still had burn marks all over his back and arms. One of the guys who died was at the front of the store and basically got obliterated in the initial explosion. The others died in the hospital in the following days from their injuries.

    That slab of marble cost roughly 3.17 in 1905, making it about 3 times as expensive as marble today when adjusted for inflation.
