    This fell on my friends head today while remodeling...

    A friend of mine has a mid to late 1800's home that he bought and is remodeling. He poked a hole in the ceiling and this fell out and landed right on his head. I'm super jealous.

    I don't think people would be hoarding 2 cent pieces back then, silver and gold yes...most likely a workman dropped it back in the good ole days

    How cool is that I read a story of a guy who found a honus wagner card in the ceiling in his kitchen another person doing drywall work and found a bunch of super rare old movie posters that were on a wall that had been covered up. That's funny a lucky sweet post!!!!!!

    If it's a 2 story house I'm betting it was dropped and fell between the floor boards not long after it was minted. Very cool find. I was often tempted to see what might be under the floor of my old house. It was built in 1790
