On the subject of coins

Rooting through the boxes under the stairs for a blender to extract DNA from dried peas led me to a coin stash from way, way back.

Some of these coins came from “grandma” – as in my mother’s mother.

1809 half penny anyone?

I like the silver dollars. You don’t see a lot of them around in stores these days.

Old coins

So what’s with the “Tax Token”? … … Ah. The Internet. Always waiting to answer your questions. It’s things like tax tokens that remind us of worser times before our births.

Speaking of which: who can forget steel pennies from WWII?
