Time Capsule..?!

Postby MYDADHADONEOFTHOSE » Sat Aug 25, 2012 10:30 am

Upon removal of my front seats for the soon-to-be-done refurb, I found this old shilling tucked near one of the seat runners. I wonder how long it had been there..? I'm not sure when these ceased to be legal tender. Not terribly exciting I grant, but still a link to the 'past' and I love history so it was still a thrilling (shilling) find...!

& to make this mean even more to me, this was minted in the same year I was produced... 1965..!! :D

Weren't they legal for some time, because they were the same size as the original five pence piece, the one before the current easy-to-lose ones? I seem to recall having some of those when I had old 5ps.
