    They certainly are.

    A child wise beyond his (or her) years. I like when that happens in real life, not just the comics.

    As I mentioned 2 days before, I’m descended from a Mint engraver.
    However, although I do collect coins, my main collection is license plates, which I started collecting 42 years ago this week. March 15, 1971 was the first day that it was legal for Pennsylvania motorists to switch their 1965-vintage license plates for the new “BICENTENNIAL STATE ’76” plates. That statewide changeover was the start of my collection.
    I have both a 1929 PA plate (the year and state of my mother’s birth) and a 1932 Missouri plate (the year and state of my father’s birth). However, I don’t have PA plates from 1959 or 1962 for my sisters. I have plenty of 1964 PA plates for my birth, as that was the last year for the 1958 base.

    Not coins, but my Great-Grandfather worked on currency. We still have the first dollar bill he made. Unfortunately, he was self-employed and the Treasury Department took a dim view of his work.

    Also, 1964 was the last year for 90% silver American coinage.

    My husband has silver dollars from the dates his grandparents were born, back in the 1890s :-)

    This comic was touching . . .

    I’m waiting for Jojo to co-opt the coins, sell them and build his grandfather something special with the money he got from selling something he didn’t own, just like Dad did. I still think that’s theft, and the ends don’t justify the means.

    If Granpa doesn’t sell the coins for himself, the kids (or grandkids) will “find” them after Granpa’s dead and sell them to Rick on Pawn Stars

    For her 55th birthday, I gave my mother two nickles from her birth year. We had her funeral today.
