Absolutely right on, Bucky!

Well, I would just hang onto it for a while... $200 is a big sum of money for most of unblessed unBillGates-like folks like us, if there was anyone who accidentally lost it, he/she would be freaking out and make the emergency known around the neighbourhood as soon as the problem is discovered. I wouldn't go around asking about it I am sure there will be false claim(s) for it, unfortunately it is just that kind of world we live in. If you don't hear about any problems over the money after several days, well, it is up to you to decide, either report it to the school authority or, well give yourself the authority to your discovery....

you should knock on everyones door and ask if they got $200 and see their reaction, if they whine about losing money thats probably him or im just making up a bad idea

I once found 40 bucks on the ground and nobody was around to claim it. I ended up keeping it and donating 1/2 of it to charity. Somehow I didn't feel as bad for keeping it when I did this.
