Very Old Coin Found in Truro

Our Liberty Coin Suite is named after the Liberty Coin, above, which Sven found while tunneling under the house four years ago. In the past, carpenters would place coins in the corners of buildings for good luck. Or, our coin could have dropped through the floor boards at some point. It is also possible to find old coins in the garden. Apparently a resident of nearby Truro, who lives beside a cemetery, did exactly that. The coin he unearthed is one of the oldest ever found on Cape Cod. Read more about it in today’s Cape Cod Times.
