My Long Deceased Grandfather is Messing With Me
Advertisement
Just got back from vacation....

My mom had a safe with some old coins and collectables from my grandfather. We found some Confederate money. My brother and I divided it up and I just got home today and started looking at it.

The $5 bill is real but the $10 bill was printed by an old inkjet printer. You can see the little dots with the naked eye.

I thought I had $15 Confederate but it now seems I only have $5.00.

What would $5.00 of Confederate money have gotten me in 1864?

The coolest part of the money is that it is really hand signed. (Back when people could write and understand cursive writing).

The house I live in was built in 1862 and now I have 5 bucks from 1864. Confederate is cooler. Friggin' globalism...

This is the part of the thread when you reply: "What else did you find, Skippy?"

Well, since you're asking....

I have some pennies that weren't minted correctly...

Some Indian Head wheat pennies.... 1886 is the oldest one. A nice one from 1908...

RE: My Long Deceased Grandfather is Messing With Me
Part of the "value" of paper money produced by banks enforced by governments was it's scarcity and quality of production limiting the potential for counterfeiting.

But banks did the same thing, they counterfeited themselves and have made money far to abundant. Of course it's concentrated in less than 0.1% of the population in astronomical amounts, but it is too abundant because the cost is the debt that we all pay in one way or another.

So it just makes you wonder with ideas like bitcoin or other electronic currencies that exist outside government regulation how long the bank's monopoly on our money will last.

It's only worth what someone else is willing to give. But if it's priceless to you, keep it.

I have a collection of old coins from pennies to silver dollars I've acquired over the last 40+ years, never sold any. Jhikpghf

Give them to the next generation and tell them your stories. Teach them that it's not about the wealth but instead the stories. That's what life is about. Living.

That can increase their value substantially, Skip.

I thought this was going to be a paranormal thread.
I was disappointed.
