Look at your hands after counting coins or playing a slot machine and you’ll see the dingy evidence. Coins pass through many hands before they get to you. They are never cleaned or washed. They are sometimes stored in bags with used tissues, in its infancy, and many other strange places. You never know where a coin was before you handle it.
