I found this affixed to some 40yr old unopened mail at mamaws house! Hahaha! I remember as a kid they would put this in junk mail as a promotion. I was kinda shocked at the condition of it. What an unlikely source for a probable mint state coin of over 40yrs. Have you guys found coins in strange places?
Have you guys ever heard of the old tradition in building homes where they would take a coin of every denomination of the year built and bury at the cornerstone for luck? Most all old homes have it. I just thought it was funny to find such a nice coin in junk mail. I had forgotten companies did this back in the 70-80s
Ok so mamaw is a term us southerners use to call a grandmother hahaha, and yes that mail was from 1975! She doesn't throw anything away. I found some green stamps and even ration booklets tucked away. Heck she even has old encyclopedias before certain elements and islands were discovered
