Oi Cheeky!Ooh tell us more young Crone.
I used to carry an old half-crown coin for luck, mainly because when half-crowns were legal tender I was a kid and would have felt RICH to own one! It fitted neatly in my jeans watch pocket.
When I met the ex and we got to know each other, for some reason one day there was a half-crown on the pub table. One of us picked it up, can't remember who, and the other said 'Oi! That's mine!'
Turned out we each carried a half-crown for luck in our watch pockets, both dated 1952. Spooky eh!
That relationship is long over but the coins are still together, in a box in the loft somewhere.
