    Never happened to me before in my life. That coin is almost 50 years old either someone spent their collection as real money (doubtful) or maybe a kid robbed his parents collection. That coin was in an air tight container for 46 years and only recently has seen circulation.

    Makes me a little sad to think that people might be having to spend their coin collections; tough times. Let's hope it's like you suspect: that a kid didn't know what he was doing when he took it from dad/mom.

    Lol Do kids even know what coins are, let alone the value? Just wondering.
