If You See A Coin On Someone's Grave, Here Is What It Means (Video)

| by Brendan Kelly

A cemetery worker found a quarter placed on a tombstone and decided to find out what it meant (video below).

Dave Malenfant, an employee of the National Cemetery in Holly, Michigan, shared a post about his mysterious discovery on Facebook, reports Q Political.

While cleaning headstones at work one day, Malenfant came across a quarter sitting on top of a tombstone and became curious. After some research, Malenfant discovered the meaning of the gesture and decided to share his findings.

“A coin left on a headstone lets the deceased soldier's family know that somebody stopped by to pay their respect,” Malenfant wrote on Facebook. “Leaving a penny means you visited. A nickel means that you and the deceased soldier trained at boot camp together. If you served with the soldier, you leave a dime. A quarter is very significant because it means that you were there when that soldier died”
