I have a bag of 50 of the common yellow ones, I must have ended up with close to 300 45's between mine & what was at my parents house. I recently found a box of 50 more. 

 

I always preferred the spindle adapter though.

My mother had a collection of them back in the day. Don't know what happened to them.

Now was that Shoney's, Manner's, or Bob's?  

 

I remember getting a free hamburger as a "reward" for picking up litter with the scouts (mom said it was a ploy to get the parents in to spend .. she taught me early on consumer scams), mom & dad had a cup of coffee & watched me eat my free "Big Boy" hamburger which was wafer thin (please present coupon before ordering).  I remember the conversation there too, my aunt (who didn't have her drivers license yet), bought a brand new car, & I had to guess what it was.

I noticed that too.  I'm going from my memory that was about 1972 or '73, 7 cents being a bigger deal then.

 

I'm hoping the "Birthday Cake"  Disney Cereal, I picked up on clearance last month ... (big box for $1!)  has a similar flavor.

I was thinking of Ralph Kramden.

 

I don't know why because when I think about it I don't think bus drivers (in my lifetime) used these change counters.

I hate it when I click to give a "Thumbs Up!" and then I see the count go down by one. That means that at some time previous I clicked a "Thumbs Up!" and I just knocked it down! Then I have to click again to fix.
