A few days ago my grandfather called me his each and took me to the attic,
So far so good, I thought I would need help with something.
Well, he took an old and very rusty box of cookies and gave it to me to open.
My surprise was when I saw what it contained inside!
A lot of old coins including Portuguese coins and some notes.
He told me that whatever happens it would be for me and asked me to bring it away and put it in a safe place.
Apparently it was my grandfather's collection treasure.
They were never cataloged and honestly I don't even know how to do it so I changed the box by putting it on a tupperware and putting absorbent paper underneath.
I put the banknotes in a plastic case to avoid being destroyed by the rust of some coins.
So today I am going to expose to all of you and probably for a long time because they are huge with different dates.
This will help me better understand this treasure of my grandfather and I take the opportunity to share my research with you.
Well first of all I will show you where you are waiting for your suggestions to keep them in the best possible place, I do not know if some of them are valuable or not but I will find out now with these surveys.
For me they are already valuable just because I have a memory of him.
