Is There A Treasure In Rare Coins Hidden In Your Basement?

A friend was recently cleaning out his family home’s basement when he came across a locked box that hadn’t been opened in perhaps decades. He dusted it off, turned the lock and was surprised to find it contained a cache of out-of-circulation coins: Peace dollars, Morgan silver dollars, Mercury dimes, Franklin half-dollars and more. Not knowing what some of these coins even were, let alone what they might be worth, he took them to a professional and had them appraised.

While much of the collection wasn’t worth a whole lot — some hadn’t been stored properly, some were worn beyond recognition — but there were some real finds, including several 1884-CC Morgan silver dollars.
