Coins from the Fifties and Sixties!

Doesn't look like to much toning going on with the twins.

 

They're different dates and grades, but both are blue. You should know by now how skilled I am at photography. (shrug)

While this is not a coin it does fit under the, "...what have you!..." category, and it hits BOTH the Fifties and Sixties...

Here is a story I haven't told yet.

When my great grandma died she had a key to safe deposit box at a bank.

She said when she died go to the box and get everything out. My family went

to the box and inside was lots of pictures and the various other thing....well while

searching the box we found a treasure map. The map was of grandma's front yard.

She had buried money in mason jars all over the yard. Each jar had a different type of coin.

Like she would have a jar with buffalo nickels, wheat cents, peace dollars and

many more. I don't remember how many mason jars there were but there was well over fifty.

Anyways we can across a jar with a stack of 100 1957 silver certificates all unc in serial # order.

We divided everything among the family. I got 4 silver certificates, many peace, morgan

dollars, lots of 20's and 30's wheat pennies along with a 1932-D quarter.

I didn't collect coins at the time and this is really what got me interested.

P.S. None of the other coins were rare or in ms condition, but they got family value.

Do you think it is worth getting the silver certificates graded?

Over the years I have picked up enough nice WQs to really flood the thread with images, but I will only add the one that I use as my avatar and then will sit back and enjoy the other coins-

Nice coins and currency everyone!

 

I do happen to have a few "modern" coins and the Jefferson series is one my favorites for some reason. (shrug)
