Did you happen to see this article the other day?
I found it exceptionally interesting . . . interesting for quite a few reasons . . . mostly due to I have always been attracted to coins . . . love 'em! I don't know much about them but I know I enjoy when I come across one! Just think its neat to have something made so many years back in your hands . . . but the oldest coins I have ever come across are wheat penny's ( some people refer to them as hay penny ) . . . I love 'em ! Love the design, the look, the feel . . . value? Some are said to be really valuable but as of yet I have not come across one that I am aware of . . .
Anyhoot . . . read this article . . . first thing that attracted me was the age of the coin . . . 1933 - wowzers ! Then to top it off being a $20 gold coin - double wowzers ! Then to read the story behind the coin . . . whoa ! Flipping my lid I am! To read they were designed, minted but then NEVER issued . . . mmmm, ain't that something! But it just gets more interesting to me to know that a few slipped away & that the government is seriously seriously seriously seriously wanting them back . . . & the extent they go to to get these few coins! Mind boggling!
God, I thank You for ever moment in my life. Help me to not worry about tomorrow but focus on honoring You today. Amen
