Take that, Washington!
That's against the law, probably coming under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Secret Service. Although I'm not the coin police.
Campagnolo - where rich people send their kids for the summer.
I bet that wasn't a field repair.
I think you're safe;

Clearly your thoughts were worth more than a penny!
Let's see, 1965. Weren't quarters still made of silver in 65?
And, why did he use a period incorrect part? That quarter is at least , what?….ten to 15 years older than the derailleur. Sheesh.
I have a Mountech II GTL, which apparently was the third iteration of that derailleur & fixed the problem that they had. Would love to have another one, as the cage is a bit loose at the rivets.
Ha! That gave me a chuckle. Saved to the HDD.
Whatever keeps it running, is a good thing.
I have a LeTech on an Expedition, similar design, but without the troublesome Mountech pulley.

I haven't taken mine completely apart, so what's the purpose of that quarter? Isn't there a spring in there?
@due route - I believe the jockey wheel is behind the plate where the quarter is, but maybe can't see it. There's a thread with a partial tear down of this derailleur here:

That's a keeper right there! I'd hang that on the wall as a conversation piece...
There's always room for one more bike!
This is a "found on the road" thread? Great!
I'm always stopping for crap I see on the road side, I slow down to scan piles of trash. The most unusual thing I have found has been a Van Briggle vase, actually a fairly rare variety, 1930's era.
I always thought a "show off your found bungee cord" thread would be interesting.
