Remember 'em ?















Eventhough there may be so many Old Coins available, dunno somehow these coins grabbed my attention and pushed me back to Memories :-)

Couldnt avoid my silent laughter when i was thinking of my piggy bank which i used to fill with these, the small trades i used to do with friends, the bribes i get from grandma ;-) , the remaining changes which i used to flick off when i do some purchase :-))))

Hey Rowdy,
Whe i saw these coins, they reminded me of my school days when flattened coins were a craze. We'ld go to the nearest railway track and wait for a train to pass by.When we can see thye train, we take a 10 paise or 20 paise coin and keep it on the track.Then, we'ld wait for the train to paass over it.After its gone, we'ld search for the coin.Either it'ld be decently flattened and would be still on the track.Or unevenly flattened in myraid designs.It was mostly a 10 paise coin as losing one meant just a loss of 2 orange candy's.
But, IF it was really flat, it was an object of pride and was displayed prominently to my friends in class the next day!!
Silly,huh??
