I have a small collection from each of my maternal and paternal sides. One came from my maternal grandfather and is odds and ends that my mom snagged for after Grandma passed away that my uncle didn't care for, a few circulated Morgan and Peace dollars and what feels like a bag of old pocket change is all. And from my paternal side, we stumbled across an old leather pouch about two years ago that had a few items from 3 generations spanning my grandmother to my great great grandfather that follows their exodus from Nebraska in the 1880s and settling in SoCal by the 1930s. Nothing there worth much to the hobby; but that it has my ancestors fingerprints and was in their pockets as they pioneered west and pulled themselves out of poverty. It's a token of their history and love that can't be replaced or upgraded. I agree with most everyone here that keeping it was 100% the right decision. :) I say put those 2x2s in album pages with some pictures and stories and help your grand kids understand what life was like, what a penny was worth, what they overcame and built everything by hand so we can sit around and gamble in crypto currency on a leather couch in a air conditioned house with a 300 HP car in the driveway. We aren't here without them.
