Our house was the original farm house for this entire hill; it was built in the 1930’s. Now, we just own the surrounding 1.5 acres. In our landscaping excavations and rooting around on top of foundations etc., we have run across some interesting stuff.
Well, tonight was one more! We were taking little’un for a walk around ‘the perimeter’ in his wagon, and I saw something small and round on the ground. At first we were going to dismiss it as a slug from an electrical box, but it didn’t look quite like that to me.
I picked it up and cleaned it off a bit, and it turned out to be a Missouri Sales Tax Receipt. Apparently they were issued during the Great Depression, because sales tax was usually a fraction of a cent.
Totally excited about this! I just love when little things like this pop up. Amazing to think that it has floated around the yard for more than 80 years…Thought I’d share
