    I got this from my grandmother. She said she had "a trunk full" & a school in probably the 20's thru 40's needed money for a school's play. Said she gave them the trunk & after the play the money scattered & this was all she saved. Sorry about the crack in the glass but haven't replaced it yet.
    Here again, I have to figure out a catagory that doesn't exist on this site!

      Bellin, knowing my grand parents, it didn't go any further after they got their hands on it! My grandfather was a Scrooge.

      Guess I'll mail it to my sister, let her replace the broken glass & then give it to her irresponsible kids!

      It is getting close. My niece was let go from the Smithsonian for unknown reasons. She would probably use that confederate note to light a fire-place if she didn't live in New Orleans but could use it to fire-up a joint. Bitch has lost 3 things of mine including parts for an 1809 Eli Whitney flintlock! Is this somebody you would want to leave things to? Rather give these things to strangers if they are people who would appreciate them. I'm still trying to figure out how somebody can lose parts to a flintlock musket!!?
      I've got an expiration date & want to get this stuff where it will be appreciated.

      Bellin, I've already made it thru the hard-time. Just know the future time is limited. They told me I was good for 15-20 yrs on this pig aortic valve before I have to go thru that again. 2 yrs have passed & I'm certainly not going thru the "nite of the living dead" at that age! Just being realistic.

      How did you get the idea that I was in pain?! I feel great! Maybe a little tired of going thru a security class that was in French this morning. Damned what a bloody bore! Glad that's over!
      Get realistic! I came out of that merde fine but have an expiration date. I'm fine & not looking for sympathy or any of that crap. You must be reading between somebody else's lines. I feel great!
      My advice on open-heart surgery is, Don't go! Just send your money!
