    Knowledge... that can't be taken away... barterable skills are more portable, more valuable, than any representation of money. It was an argument that I had a long time ago with an uncle of some repute... here's a link to his response:

    And yes, I'm the Charlie the letter is addressed to.
    Wow....what an insight your uncle had. You are a fortunate man to have had him in your life. Thanks for sharing.
    Don't tread on me or mine.

    Pre 1964 dimes were silver. Nickels are nickel. Pre 1984 pennies were copper. After that they are copper plated zinc.
    The silver coins are fairly easy to pick out. They sound different when you drop them and when you look at them edge on they are uniform. Non silver "silver" coins when you look at the edge you can see the copper base metal of the coin.

With the economy being what it is right now people are digging out the coins in drawers, coffee cans, jars and any where else they have them squirreled away then rolling them and cashing them in.
    ooh...that's smart. I didn't think about that. I might have to try that this week...
