    And I thought I was lucky when I found a 24" pull bar, 6" extension and 1/2" socket laying in the road! Dang good eyes spotting that little brown box, brother!

    Nice eyeball find to be sure, not worth all that much.
    I have boxes full of them, check ebay sold listings for current market value.

    I called a local coin shop and told him the story. He said he thought he dropped them somewhere around there and started laphing. I know there not worth much but still a neat find. I'm sure it won't happen again.

    Some poor schmoe probably had is hands full and put on the roof of his car, then pulled away. Never realizing what he had done.
    And you eyeball it!

    I've had that happen. Driving home I spot something shiny on the shoulder. I pull over and walk back (other people in traffic were not happy with me). Here it's an expensive (at that time) cell phone. It's locked but I can I call back the last number. It's the owner's son. His father had his wallet and phone stolen, at least he got his phone back.

    WTH? I suspect it might be stolen stuff that got discarded while on the run, but your keen eye saved it. Great find!

    Nice finds and congrats. You might post them on Coins to see if someone there may know a bit more on them. They are likely silver and have more value but there are others that would know more at a glance. I know people hate to lose things and if it was on top of the car and driven off and lost, would have been impossible to find and a kid might have found, popped out of the holders and spent them. If stolen, If there is no name, marking or other ID, hard to tell and I am not going to do anything other than say good luck with them, hope you do find someone with better knowledge of the values and keen eyes!

    They are both 40% silver, the brown box is the original box that the Ike proof coin came in. Combined total value worth about $20.
