    Good thing it doesn’t try to sort the coins, those always jam and send dimes to the pennies and nickels to the quarters. This one will merely jam, without the troublesome missorting.

    Depending on its engineering, it could be a great gift for people who like to take things apart and clean out coins clogging the pathway.
