were they trying to screw you or did they not know themselves?
she knew it would have been a valuable if real. not 100% sure if she knew it was a counterfeit
What was her response when you broke the news to her?
What? Really? How are you so sure. Yada yada yada
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.
What's that reason?
To spot fakes. Cashiers would tap the coins on the marble. Fakes would make a different sound than real ones.
Seems like an expensive way to verify coin authenticity
What was the cost of 1 lb of marble in 1905?
1 lb seems like a pretty small counter to me.
Learn something new every day.
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.
it's been a long time
How much counter space do you think someone needs to tap a coin?
Well I don't really consider what is featured in the picture a counter.
Retroactively mad at the price of cash register materials by a full century is peak shawn
But would a haunted slab of marble be able to make a fake coin sound real?
Honestly, I was just thinking that the cash register posted above looks haunted as fuck.
Who said I was mad?
Calm the fuck down, man.
What kind of spirit do you think would inhabit it
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.

Built January 1906
What's that slab of granite for?
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.
That’s a million-dollar slab right there. What is this, Rockefeller’s cash register?
Where were these cash registers when I was a kid?
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.
He saved the money and let the people die?
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.
Fire has to be one of the worst ways to go, right?
Yea that may be one of the most haunted items in America.
Those drawers look like they could hold big fat loads of cum.
Down here at the Pawn Shop. Part 2: What was the cost of 1 lb of marble in 1905?
That slab of marble cost roughly 3.17 in 1905, making it about 3 times as expensive as marble today when adjusted for inflation.
