When we were little kids, we sometimes dreamed of being so rich by finding a secret treasure. We dreamed of finding it under our doormat, or somewhere deep in the ground. Many kids would boast that their house had it, and then their friends would laugh at the stupid idea. But how stupid is it? Would you like the idea of getting rich all of a sudden from having a secret treasure stowed in plain sight at your house? If you have some old quarters, you might be a step closer to finding out.
Apparently, some coins are worth $35,000, but what are the odds that you have one? Do you have a collection of old coins? I’m not talking about coins from the dawn of time, but something from the not so distant past.
