Please join us as we welcome Harley J. Spiller to Herbie's Vintage 72 for a reading and signing for Keep the Change: A Collector's Tales of Lucky Pennies, Counterfeit C-Notes, and Other Curious Currency

Harley J. Spiller began collecting money at age five when, home sick from school, his father tossed him a sack of pennies and a Whitman coin folder. In the five decades since, Spiller has amassed one of America’s most extensive collections of unusual financial artifacts as well as a wealth of anecdotes and quirky historical details about US currency. He says, “I see my collection as a cache that cannot be counted in standard ways. It’s not about money; it’s about what can be learned from money.” 

In Spiller’s Keep the Change, readers learn why greenbacks are green, what happens to worn-out bills, how artists navigate the fine line between art and mutilation, and whether it’s ever acceptable to burn money. Did you know U.S. dollars are magnetic, that they have hidden day glow colors, or that the U.S. Mint intentionally mangles coins? Broken into bite-sized chapters on banknote errors, coin clipping, legal restrictions, counterfeiting, slang terms, and more, Keep the Change is illustrated with vivid photographs of Spiller’s collection. The book is also peppered with true anecdotes like The Bank Manager Who Throws Away a Grand a Year. This highly selective tour through currency legends and lore will inspire readers to look with a new sense of wonder at the bills that pass through our hands every day.
