This takes me back...when I was in elementary school, every afternoon the sixth grade kids would operate an ice cream snack "shack"-Popsicles and the like, during a 15 minute break. This was in the mid-sixties. On the days it was my turn, Mom would send me off with the "new" dimes and quarters to trade for any solid silver coins coming through.

We asked for a lot of change in "change" at the store, too. I think she started hoarding solid silver coins the day the copper-centered ones were announced.

She loved her stocks, but always had a weakness for precious metals...and apparently it's genetic.
