I went to Commie Mart this morning to buy some groceries. Well the lady drops a quarter and dime into my hand. I wasn't paying attention when I heard the distinct sound that a silver coin makes. I thought for a moment she gave me a Canadian coin. But when I looked it was a 1964 Washington quarter. I was so giddy I almost forgot to take my brown rice until the cashier reminded me that I should grab it. I didn't say anything, and got the heck out of there. :lol Some kid must of got into grandpa's coin jar. :lol This is like winning the lottery. The last time I seen a silver coin given to someone in change was a client at work that got a silver quarter out of the pop machine. Then before that way back in highschool someone in my class got a silver quarter for change out of a pop machine. Must of the silver coins were melted down by silver profiteers after the Hunt brothers corner the silver market in the late 1970's. I remember my dad looking through the cupboards where he threw all of his change for silver ones but didn't find one at that time. Silver was going for $50 then. My mom was making $6 as a Nurse Des Moines General Hospital at that time.
