Wow incredible! I missed this post during deer season I guess. That's the kind of spill everybody dreams of finding. A change purse with old Seated coins. All that was missing was a gold coin. Can't have it all I guess. Way to go!

That amount in face value for 1880 would have been about a half of a days wage for the average worker. Can you imagine the conversation the presumed husband had with said wife... lol. Could have been his coin purse I guess. I just get this image in my head of a couple arguing about it.

I'd speculate this coin purse was dropped later than the 1880's. The reason I say that is the 1877 dime and quarter are really worn to just be 10 years old. The Shield nickel does look pretty fresh, but I can't imagine the 1877 dime and quarter getting that much wear in 10 years. My guess it was lost around the 1900 or shortly after. Nickel is very hard compared to silver and would not show the kind of wear silver does.
