I recalled after reading the last E-Sylum that I have a pair of the gold coin Christmas boxes. One is just as you showed. But the other is more patriotic. Alas, they are
both empty. See attached for the eagle one, I think for a $5 gold piece.
ANA Edition reader Jeremy Schneider writes:
I enjoyed the article on Christmas coins; it is unfortunate that this tradition has fallen out of favor. Several years ago, I purchased this 1882 half eagle and have always
wondered the intention of the little box that it came in- after reading Len's article I'm thinking that perhaps this was somebody's Christmas present at one time.
Thanks, everyone! -Editor
