Definitely an unusual "bank find" - Congrats!

Someone didn't know they were turning in sterling silver "bird coins"!

I'd like to know where the other 2 for the set are. I'm sure it was not a collector that cashed them in.

Maybe the coins were spent at different locations and the others wound up at a different bank as a result of the store where they were used?

I'd hope not!

I suspect they were from a collector but not cashed in by them....possibly stolen; possibly pilfered

Always good to leave a bank with a handful of fun stuff.

I always ask if they have any thing different even if it's not my bank.

Or inherited by someone who never understood the hobby.
