And given the annual Australian inflation rate of about half a per cent, it was probably a wise investment.

Well, yeah, if it was a pie, it would be a shiatty looking-pie.

Diving in the harbor of Pago Pago in the 90's, with my future father in law (Chuck). At the base of an outcrop about 100 feet down, Chuck reaches in to a crevice look for shells, and pulls out a manila accordion folder, in it we found the Hawaiian drivers license, and an old Master Card that belonged to the fire/lifeboat repair guy Tom, who shared the same building with Chuck. He had lost it about 15 years earlier. Needless to say he was a bit surprised to be reunited with it.

PINS did, certainly. Now if he claimed the debit and credit cards had tap, I would question it.

Good call.
Google says insert credit card chips came out October 2015 in Europe before becoming widespread, so only five years ago!

Sorry, meant to edit.
That was for the US.
In Europe, EMV technology (Europay, Mastercard, Visa=EMV) came out in 1994 (before that similar chips were used for calling cards).
So assuming this guy was a really, REALLY early adopter, that's still 26 years.

In the end, this is The Star we are discussing.

CSB time: I lost my wallet at a gym in college. Foolishly had $200 in there.  There was absolutely no one in the locker room when I was there and I accidentally left it on the bench.  I walked out and realized about 30 minutes later , went back and it was gone. I asked the manager if anyone had turned in a wallet. He did this whole "now where is that?" rummaging through all the stuff act.  He said he thought he had remembered someone had turned it in. He found it! "Oh here it is! Looks like there wasn't any money in it though.. sorry kid"
