    Today I found what I suspect to be the contents of a money box or a cash box of some sort.  There was no box as such, but in amongst the coins were what look to be a clasp and a handle.  Whatever it was, it produced over 200 decimal coins.

    Today marks a hat trick in coin spills that are pre decimal and seven coins long.  What makes this one special to me is that the youngest coin in this spill was born in 1858.

    On the far left, the largest coin is an 1858 Queen Victoria penny and it's larger than the mod...
