HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (AP) - Two more gold coins have been dropped into the same Salvation Army kettle at an upstate New York grocery store where a gold coin valued at $500 was donated earlier this month.
Elmira Salvation Army officials tell the Star-Gazette of Elmira the coins were anonymously dropped into the kettle outside a grocery store in the town of Horseheads.
The coins are a 1982 Canadian Gold Maple Leaf and a 1912 British sovereign, each worth about $450.
The latest gold coin donations were discovered Monday night. The discovery came 10 days after a 1999 American Eagle gold coin worth $500 was dropped into the same kettle.
That coin was wrapped in a $100 bill and a note that read: "This coin is solid gold and worth around $500. God Bless."
