    I saw the article a couple of days ago and they mentioned a coin but there wasn't anything else about it. That's cool :)

    Very cool. You know that whomever lost the half dollar was sure upset with themselves. That was quite the sum of cash in those days.

    Definitely was a substantial amount of $$$ back then. Also could have been a lost family heirloom or something and never meant to have been spent though...

    "She uncovered up a 50-cent coin from 1808 — the year Ben Ross and Harriet Tubman’s mother, Harriet “Rit” Green, were married and started their family."
