Look what I won!
Friday evening, New Albin Savings Bank sponsored a big party to kick off New Albin Days and to honor Walt Breeser, who recently retired after nearly 60 years as the town barber. The bank had a drawing for 20 old silver dollars. REAL silver dollars! And I won this neat one from 1921. I just keep holding it and hefting it. That's a lot of silver!
I have a 1922 silver dollar that my mother gave me once. She told me at the time where it came from but I have forgotten, and I need to ask her again.
