A 102 year old Missouri man, Eric P. Newman, hoarded nearly 2,000 rare American coins over 90 some odd years. The coins sold for $23 million at auction. He started collecting the coins in the 1930s, and paid about $7,500 for the 1,800-piece collection.
A 1795 U.S. silver dollar in "almost pristine condition" sold for $910,625.
Now, I'm thinking that I should have checked out all of the coins my Dad had collected over the years, instead of just selling them for the silver content for my Mom.
So, check them silver coins you all have. You never know what might be setting there waiting for you to discover.
