The Perks of the Job

So even though Blake sometimes has to work super late, (he JUST got home and its midnight!)there are several perks to the job. Blake was going through a bag of coin and found 5 silver dimes. They are worth just over $1.25 a piece, because they are 90% silver. He just pays the company the .10 cents for each dime and then he can take them in and get more money for them.
And then, today, he found THE oldest coin ever found in the shop. (They find a ton of old coins) But Blake just found a Constantius II Roman coin, (Augustus 337-361 AD)! Its only worth about $40.00 because of how beat up it is, but Blake doesn't want to sell it! :) And because its foreign (really! foreign) he can just take it home. He doesn't have to pay the price of the coin, because it isn't actually a real coin anymore. Awesome hu?
Okay, well I am going to go to bed. Goodnight!
