Counting the Pesetas

In the old days – make that ten years ago, or twenty, thirty or even forty – banks in this country had funny looking machines, archaically looking like the one shown here, counting the coins, be that Duros, Centimos, Pesetas or whatever.

Bernat, the friendly cashier at my local bank branch, assures me that this museum piece of a coin counting machine still does its job even today, because one can mechanically adjust it to the size, the weight, the diameter and the thickness of the coins, be that Pesetas or Euros or even, Pounds and Pennies.

The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Spain. The date: September 24th, 2008. The time was 12:37:56.
