Sometimes people can find treasure the oddest of ways.
My wife finds a 1912 Mercury dime just lying in a common parking lot.
I get a 1937 buffalo nickel as part of the change from a soda machine.
Last summer, my sister-in-law gets, as payment for goods at the Wal-Mart, a wad of common cash, and part of it was a 2000 silver dollar. Not the Eisenhower; it was the big, 100% pure, worth-at-least-ten-dollars-as-seen-on-TV American eagle silver dollar. Being used at face value!
I once had to ask the guy getting his vehicle inspected if he had something other than the 1927 silver certificate $10 bill to use. Fortunately for him, he did.
Some people can be soooooo.....I guess that's why we're in business, huh?
