Unfortunately I developed a hole in a pants pocket twice now in the last 6 months.
This is the 3rd time since I started carrying coins 7 or so years ago.
After the first time 4 or 5 years ago I had my mother sew the bottom seam of all of my pants and shorts pockets extra reinforced.
Unfortunately the second time a few months ago I'm not sure what happened but I eventually found my lost dime.
A month or 2 ago when it happened for the 3rd time it was because I had introduced a new dollar with sharp reeding on the edge and I believe it sawed a hole in the side of my pocket the size of a half dollar and I lost my 2 dimes at work without my knowledge and then I drove to the grocery store and shopped and then went home before I realized that I had a hole and the dimes had gone missing. Luckily after all of the walking around with the hole my quarter and $20 for $20
didn't fall out as well. Of course all of this happened on a Friday and I had to sit and worry all weekend.
I found my dimes at work on Monday and have since decided to carry my coins in a pouch that my mother had sewn for me.
Current state of the small ones.
