I do remember those medals--I was a tourist once at the UN.  Odd to have one turn up in such a place, eh?  Cool find!

81 and newer?  That's an unusual distribution.  Generally you can tell when someone stopped putting coins in a jar, because there's nothing newer.  Nothing older?  That would mean someone was systematically filtering out coins older than a certain date--easily done if someone's not putting wheaties in that jar, or something like that, but 1981 is an odd cutoff for that (and besides, it's more likely they'd be saving the wheaties and spending the rest).  Now if it was 81 and older it would make sense, someone saved coppers and spent zinkys (and decided to forgo 1982 because they couldn't tell the difference and would rather let a copper go than have a zinky be in their stash).

So far a total of 13 2 and 3 lb coffee cans, assorted dates wheaties were separate , 30 whitman penny books only common holes filled. Some nickle,dimes quarters JFK's. $2.00 bills 2 dozen no silver to amount to any amount. She also never meet a state quarter or a pres dollar she could let go wouldn't believe that would never be worth more than face value. And some assorted Canadian coinage which I traded to a member on another forum that sent me some casino tokens. I am an elongated penny collector so the coppers are used for traders and selling to other members of TEC

For a long time I simply accumulated the state quarters.  I had some vague notion of keeping a roll of the the best ones from each mint & for each state.

I finally just gave up trying to keep up with it, dumped the whole mess into an ammo can, and went to the bank, which has a machine in the lobby that issues a receipt you can go deposit in your account.

It was $1000.75.  Nice, when one is unemployed (as I was at the time).
