Here's a family heirloom:  one of a set of 12 coin-silver spoons (six teaspoons and six tablespoons) that Mary Curtis purchased in 1865.  The 14-year-old farm girl had strung tobacco to earn the money.

Seventy years later (see photo), two years before her 1937 death, she sold the family farm.  She gave the spoons to her granddaughter Ann Buckingham, who became my mother.
