Spend as much time as you can with the man.
Enough of that talk any way that's one cool piggy bank and loving them seated coins.

That will be a bitter sweet stack to add to the hoard.

Your father reminds me of my grandfather. He held on to all pre-65 silver and when he passed my grandmother exchanged it at the bank for face value. I remember he kept it in his night table in 2lb plastic containers that you get filled with potato salad at the deli counter. He had at least $300 - $400 in face value. What I did get from him was a huge genuine star sapphire. He got it in the early 1940's when he sold shoes for a living. A Merchant Marine had no money but needed shoes so they bartered. I had that put in an 18k gypsy setting with 2 diamond baguettes on the side. It's cool piece with a cool story.

I got pre-33 gold from my other grandfather. I had them graded at NGC and they now have a book value of about $16k.

I wish your old man good health.

yep this little hoard will always be special to me and will always be separated from my hoard, the gold, barber halves and other 1800 era coinage were from my grandmother given to him.

Out of curiosity, what do they call those dagger darts & the use? Seen them before but couldn't figure it out. Maybe I'm too naive.

They are corn cob holders.
