My Grandfather is turning 100 this month and I am looking to do a little shadow box with a couple things from 1911. I was wondering if anyone out there has any coins from that year..they are willing to part with or sell...

(long shot.. I know I can get from ebay - but thanks in advance for any help!) :)

Check the pawn shop... on tancard.. you might even find bills there. Well I know they sell this kind of thing cause we always look.. but I think that would be your best bet.

Thank you icecapp, As a last minute effort, I went to SHW and found a couple 1911 coins & also found coins from Sweden which is where is was born. Hoping to make my Grampa's day a little brighter! :) Cheers!

There are places out there that will print news papers of things that happened on the day of the persons birthday. Should be easy to track down with the net.

I actually made up a big foam board with fun facts of 1911 & statistics such as costs of bread, stamps, milk, cars, etc & life expectancy in 1911. (only because it was 48 for males.. and he reached 100 today!) The family liked it. I felt he was touched by that & the coins... I was going to do the newspaper too.. but ran out of time. Oh well.. overall great day for my Grandpa :)
