THIS would be quite the find!!

Found in the 1960's, but kept intact.

That's pretty cool. I keep thinking/hoping I'll find something like that next time they renovate my house but considering it was built in 1977 it seems highly unlikely.
Working on: Peace dollars (two to go), US type (early Bust era), Indian quarter eagles, Chinese pandas, and San Francisco tokens.

Amazing story. The $1.95 she had in her purse would be worth over $50 in today's buying power. The "cents" were the equivalent of today's "quarters".

Quite a sum of money in 1915.

Notice the Lincoln is a 1914 Philly issue?

And the insurance company will say they paid out on the loss and demand restitution. Then the government will stake a claim on it as treasure trove.
