Random thing I have learned today

It’s illegal to melt down 1 cent / penny and 5 cent / nickel coins in America. And no leaving the country with more than $5 worth of them in your pocket!
So, next time you’re wandering about America, wondering what sort of things you can destroy with a kiln or a blow torch…step away from the coinage!!
