At some point before my mother's death, she gave me what she called a billfold, but it seems to me more like a coin purse, that her father carried with him until he died. Then his wife, my Grandma Stevens, carried it in her purse until she died. Mother carried on that tradition and kept it in her purse, but gave it to me quite a while before she died. Now I carry it in my purse, although the billfold/coin purse isn't capable of holding anything now.
|Mother taped it together, but tape doesn't last very long.|
Next, the note Mother wrote for me on the back of a deposit slip.
|A silver dollar, 1921. We checked; it isn't worth a lot.|
|A 1902 quarter|
