Kris and Becky Hammond were given this piggy bank as a wedding gift. The couple has been putting loose change in it since they were married 30 years ago.

Steamboat lawyer Kris Hammond dumped hundreds of pennies, nickels, quarters, dimes, Canadian change, Pesos, Malaysian coins, New Zealand coins, paperclips and dust onto the floor of Alpine Bank on Friday afternoon, emptying the contents of a piggy bank to which he and his wife, Becky, have been contributing since they were married 30 years ago.
Kris Hammond was traveling from Loveland to San Antonio in his white Mercury Lynx about four or five days prior to his wedding day when the driveshaft gave out near Lamesa, Texas.
