When counting the donation in one of their red kettles, Salvation Army volunteers in upstate New York found more than the unusual spare change. Officials with the Salvation Army in Elmira, New York say they found a gold coin worth $500 wrapped in a $100 bill. The American Eagle coin and the bill had a memo attached that said, “This coin is solid gold and worth around $500. God Bless.” Officials say the annual collection usually brings in a few valuable coins, and around 400 have been found over the past thirty years. In 2012, other gold coins were found in kettles that came from Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, North Carolina, and Florida. Most were dropped in by generous donor who preferred to remain anonymous.– Jim L.
