It's been good so far... we did a quick run through the other day looking for important papers and what not... we did find a small box of old coins,
mostly foreign, ranging from 1853-1960.
I have went through the coins via ebay, and it looks like 99% aren't worth anything.... but there were two civil war pennies 1864 & 1865, an 1879
morgan in poor shape (still around 60.00 or so) a couple of 1922 Liberties worth about 20.00 each... all told close to 300.00 in what people are
asking on ebay, so I figure around 150-175 if you just sold the whole lot of them.
There were some more coins inside a locked china cabinet, but we couldn't get it open without breaking the glass, and that would drop the value of the
cabinet, it is an antique.
It's that metal box that has me wondering... the kids found that money about 50 years ago.... and they left it where it was because their parents came
home.... the closet where the box was found is now empty and that box has yet to be found.
It is probably gone, the father died unexpectedly years ago, and his bank account was empty at the time. The father was self employed and dealt with
cash, it most likely got re-invested in the fathers work, but that doesn't explain why that metal box has disappeared....
oh yeah,,, and this:
it was tucked away in an old closet... I believe it is a 50th anniversary Daisy BB gun.... stock is excellent, but the barrel is rusted... still pumps
too....a guy offered me $15.00 bucks for it today.... probably should have taken that offer. (especially since I found one that sold in an online
auction still in the box for $16.00..lol)
