Chuck spent time in the Marines stationed in Hawaii and travelled all over the world. In his travels he collected beer labels, cigarette packages, and money from various countries. He obtained more after his stint in the marines and has quite a collection. He said I could share some with everyone so here are the coins etc that interested me.
|Beer labels and Cigarette packages|
An interesting coin was a Nazi coin that he actually found in his garden. You can see the swastika on one side.
And then there was a Japanese or Chinese coin with a square hole in the middle.
The paper money from Ceylon were very colourful and had some very intricate designs. Ceylon is now known as Sri Lanka. Ceylon gained independence from Britain in 1948 and changed its name to Sri Lanka when it became a republic in 1972.
After we finished looking at his treasures, we went out and had a bonfire. I had a hot dog and withing half an hour I was sick as a dog again. I guess I am not over the flu or whatever it was yet. So I headed to bed without a picture of the bonfire.
Here is the view out our window today.
