More buried treasure

After seeing the posts (first and second) about some of the interesting artifacts we've recovered while deconstructing the cottage, lots of people have asked "how much money have you found?" Visions of sacks of Franklins lining the walls helped fuel the actual demolition process. Quite frankly, Franklin, we would have been very happy with just a few C-notes.

Well, I hate to tell you the final results: we uncovered very little currency... and that's a real shame, especially considering how much we're paying for all these renovations!

Perhaps someone can tell me whether this aluminum coin is legal tender. Somehow, I doubt it.

Interesting coin, definitely not legal tender! "The Osborne Register Co., Cinti, O." -- wonder if there's any kind of connection to the cottage? Doubtful, but still a neat find -- would be interesting to find more information on the whole set!

Fuzzy, no connection to the cottage at all, except that a previous occupant must have been a customer, in some small way. You might want to check out!
