Snapshot in Time

Stopped by a 7-11 in Cerritos today to buy a newspaper.

The guy in front of me was trying to use a 1999 Susan B. Anthony coin to pay for his purchase.

The clerk hadn't seen one before and wasn't sure how much it was worth or even if it was a U.S. coin.

The clerk asked me if I recognized it. My mini-lecture on the American Suffrage Movement led to the acceptance of the coin as legal tender.

And sales at the Cerritos 7-11 resumed.
