    How many of you remember when Wheaties, the breakfast of champions, put foreign coins in their boxes? I think it was around the early 1950s. I ran across two that I have still in the cellophane wrapper. Sure brought back some memories.

    I'm not old enough to remember when this happened but I had a few of these given to me when I was a kid, and in fact your two coins above are the same coins (and maybe the same year, like 1953?) that I received.

    I'm familiar with those and the Wheaties promotion but I never got any of them myself. We ate Special K or Frosted Flakes. Some time we managed to get Super Sugar Crisps (later became Super Golden Crisps when sugar became a bad word for children's cereals.)
