LOST COIN RETURNS TO OWNER AFTER OVER FIFTY YEARS

The Regina Leader-Post of Canada reported on October 23rd the
story of a local collector who was recently shocked to discover
at a coin show a numismatic souvenir he'd lost in the early 1950s.

"Coin collector Royce Hall buys and sells numerous rare and hard-to-find
coins. But even he was surprised at the coin that turned up on his
table at the Regina Coin Club's fall show this weekend.

The Dauphin, Man. resident was only eight years old when his mother
took him to a fair around 1950.

"They had a machine there you could put in a dime and you could
print out on an aluminum disc (with) your name and address," he
said. "So I had printed 'Royce Hall, Dauphin Manitoba.' And somewhere
within the next year I lost it."

But upon attending the coin show Saturday -- which he has attended
for the majority of the last 40 years -- he was surprised to see
his old souvenir again."
