Another heading for this might have been “Finding a Needle in a Haystack”. Our plumber team found this old penny tucked somewhere in the G.A.R. building here in Detroit. We like Barton Plumbing because of their attention to detail – and they went above and beyond in finding this small token amidst all they were doing.What’s really interesting is that it is a Canadian coin. The G.A.R. Hall was completed right around 1900 – so this was most likely a shiny penny when someone accidentally dropped it. How it traveled from Canada to Detroit is a mystery.There will be a display case in the lobby with all the “found” items from the construction phase.
Likely this will be the smallest item shown.
