When I was a teen (1970's) I remember something like if you put a quarter halfway through the slot of a vending machine with your finger on the edge then spun it as it dropped in it would credit a purchase regardless what the price was - probably 50 cents back then. I remember it working on multiple machines but maybe 5% of the time at best. A friend of mine would stand there, spin a quarter in, not get credit, hit the change lever, try again, etc. until he got a credit or got tired of trying and put the full amount in.
