Jim, you mentioned you'll be visiting Stiles soon. This 1956 penny is for him.
I found this penny on the western path. I picture it being dropped by a Bajor or Appert [the two Celery Farming families].
Give Stiles my best! I'm very thankful for the Celery Farm. What a great thing he and others did.
To elaborate a little, Nevins McBride first put the bulk of the Celery Farm property up for sale in 1956, and Stiles began trying to save it. A representive for U.S. Fish & Wildlife wrote to Stiles and said the land was too small and too expensive to save.
I'm giving Stiles the penny this Sunday.
