This is the fifth "Cheerios" Sacky I have seen auctioned on eBay..

Funny thing is.......this is the third one that has been local to me.

 

The General Mills plant where Cheerios are packaged is in Buffalo.

The first coin was in Lakeview, about 15 mins south

The next was in Niagara Falls, about 20 mins North

Now this one is in Cheektowaga, Less than 10 mins East.

 

Coincidence?????

I had the chance to talk with the first seller (across the street). He said he didn't work for General Mills and was a teenager when he got the coin. Remembered he had it when he stumbled across a story about the Cheerios Sacky and dug it from a box of Baseball cards and stuff in his attic.

To give you an idea just how close these are....

...

The Green box is the factory. Red are the 3 coins. I'm the Blue box. ;)

 

 

Well, I have been fairly close to you a few times then. I have taken a few road trips between the US and Canada, passing through Buffalo. My wife and I once even camped at the KOA on Grand Island. :ninja:

Right next to Fantasy Island!!

 

You were likely within 1 mile of my home.

Let me know if your ever in the area again.

Famous quote, paraphrased form memory:

 

"1st time, happenstance,

2nd time coincidence,

3rd time, enemy action" ;-)
