I tend to walk eyes down, not a very confident pose I suppose. But, today at lunchtime it meant I saw a 2p coin.
I am really funny about small denomination coins I see, I always pick them up and stuff it it my bag. Who knows when the change could be useful? And, hell it is money after all.
When I went out again to take the post later, I saw another. As I did not have my bag with me I kept it in my hand.
It was not until I was back in the office I looked at it closer.
It is actually a 1955 Half Penny. It looks exactly the same as a 2p coin.
And minted 2 years after our Queen's coronation.
I have checked and unfortunately, it is not worth enough to pay off the mortgage or even buy a stamp. But, I was fascinated.
A 57 years old coin just lying there on the pavement!
What's the best thing you have found?
Who knows what I may find tomorrow.
