Last centenarians of the 1800s
« on: April 07, 2015, 12:01 »
An article in the paper today had me reflecting somewhat wistfully on the age of coins. When I found my first 1800s coin a while ago I surmised that someone might still be alive from that year. It was an 1896 QV penny. According to this article there are only 3 people left on the planet that were born in the 1800s. So I imagine in a year or two every 1800s coin we turn up will predate living humans...

People generally are living to their eighties ... Back in those days age expectancy would have been late 40s .. I don't wonder if the owner of my finds is still alive lol but I do wonder what they were doing to have lost it , and try and put myself in that time frame .. Sometimes it can give u a snapshot of a moment in time .

And there goes the last one.  Any finds from the 1800s now predate humans.
