Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

Weekly Photo Challenge: Relichalf cent

Its blackened metal has been worn smooth by time and use, the words and images barely visible.

 I hold this half cent on my palm in wonder…

 How many hand did it pass through before it landed in mine?

  1. I bet that coin could tell us many stories.

    Don’t know why I didn’t think of sharing a coin. What a good idea! We’ve been going through my Mom’s things after her death, and there were several old, worn-down coins. We’re just hanging onto them — for who knows what reason!

      To be honesty I didn’t think of it my husband did. Similarly his dad passed away this spring and this was one of the coins from his collection

  3. That’s a lovely relic, rich with hidden stories. I love how worn it looks….

      I love the worn look too. We have a few other coins that are supposed to be worth more and are in shinier condition but I like to imagine how the worn ones got that way far better than looking at a pristine coin that someone never used.

    Hi, It’s Susanne popping over from AdventuresAroundScotland after you found me on Pitch Party.

    I love this simple post and photograph, very thought provoking. An everyday object but with plenty of stories I bet 🙂

    oh my gosh, what a find! And I agree, how many hands have held it, pocketed it, flipped it, and what tales and trails those people must have experienced.
