Great Pop died when I was really young. I would have been around 3 when he passed. He lived with Nana and Pop Peace (Dad’s parents) in the last years of his life and I recall being terrified of him. As someone who is so interested in family history, I regret that now but, as I said, I was so incredibly young.
I remember after he died, a bag of old coins appeared on one of our kitchen bench tops. I was forbidden to touch them, as they were Great Pop’s, given to Dad after he passed away. After awhile they disappeared, until I remembered their existence a few weeks ago. I asked Mum about them, she didn’t know where they were. Until the other night, whilst she was rummaging through our storeroom. Out she came, holding the plastic bag I remember from years ago, with all the coins still in it.
I had a look at them today.
Being a 90’s baby I admit I’m not all too familiar with these coins! I called Nana and Pop to ask about them, and Pop doesn’t remember giving them to us!! I am sure they are from his Dad!
I will properly store these coins as soon as possible, once I’ve looked into how to do it.
