THOUGHTS ON DETECTING COUNTERFEIT COINS BY THEIR SOUND

Last week's item on the inventor who detects counterfeit coins by the sound they make brought several comments from readers. -Editor


Tom DeLorey writes:
Considering the flood of counterfeit British round pound coins, anything that promotes "sound money" is a good thing.


Joe Boling writes:
In the article on detecting counterfeit coins by sound, one line ends "would allow computer analysis of each coin vended." That is the second time in a week that I have seen a coin inserted into a vending machine being referred to as a coin being vended. Not so - the product that the machine sells is vended, but the money used to buy it is not.


I found that a bit jarring, too. The coin may be "deposited" or "tendered", but it's not "vended". -Editor
