He ends his sweet note (and even used my crafting cute edge scissors to cut around it) with a quote from A Soalin'....If you haven't got a ha' penny then God Bless You.
Well, I do have an 1891 Victoria British Penny:
You can barely make out any of the details but you can see the date. Seeing Victoria on the reverse side is a bit hard to make out in a photograph but here she is:
So now I will store her with these 3 silver dollars in a safe place UNTIL and IF I decide to gift her to one of the kids....If I don't..NO ARGUING WHEN I DIE, KIDS. OK...as of Saturday, December 29, 2012, I have decided that Miss Scarlett will possess Victoria Penny WHENEVER I can let it go. Maybe when she needs a penny for her wedding shoe...maybe before. I made the decision because she always sings that song (A' Soalin' at Christmas). Plus I realized that I need to give to the grands' generation....
But isn't she lovely?! And isn't Robert the sweetest gift giver?!
