I was on it like flies on poop! Many of the coins in my collection came from there. I did give back some of the silver quarters and let him know what they were worth at the time. Fun stuff!

Quote from: Figleaf on August 10, 2020, 01:47:24 PMThe coin shortage was due to the retirement of silver in circulating coins. It affected circulating denominations containing silver before the Coinage Act of 1965, as they were hoarded.Peter
