Among the things that came out of the boxes in the garage was a purse full of pre-decimal -loose change that my grandmother had stashed away. It has all the heads- going back to a middle-aged Victoria. There are pennies, halfpennies, farthings. The farthings wear best- and I've selected a couple out for keeping- because they're pretty. The rest are off to the charity shop. None of them is worth anything but loose change; I checked.
