I don't remember the last time I picked up a silver quarter. Nice score!

Very cool! I found a 1968 Swiss 1/2 Franc coin on a tiny Northern Michigan campground beach. Looks just like that one.

Greetings from Switzerland.

Yes, that is indeed a spendable 1 Swiss franc coin, shame it was not one from prior to 1968, because they are 95% silver ;-)

Now all the pirates are going to come plunder your spot knowino there are silver quarters to be had.

Nice saves for sure though.
