She examines the coins and politely returns them to me. “They are very nice, but I have all of these. May I see your Half Cents?” She looks at these, and again politely returns the tray.
“I’m so sorry, but I already have all of these examples. But thanks so much for showing the coins to me. They are lovely.”
“Thank you, Mrs. Norweb.” I say quietly. She looks up at me, smiling sweetly, charmed that I knew her name. What a nice lady.
