Coin machines were used by bank tellers for many years. This one came from the Idaho First National Bank in Orofino. Idaho First National was located at 333 Michigan Ave. It became West One Bank in 1989 and is now US Bank. Notice the calibrations for counting coins and levers for tellers to count change for customers. On the top is another tray for coins. This coin machine was donated to the Clearwater Historical Museum by Idaho First National Bank.
