Anonymous donor strikes again
BARRE, Vt. (AP) - When an anonymous donor dropped a rare Indian head =
coin into a Salvation Army kettle last year, Capt. Louis Patrick thought =
it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Think again.

It happened again this week, with another plastic-wrapped mint condition =
coin turning up in a kettle at the Berlin Mall.

"It's a once-in-lifetime event that happened twice," said Patrick, who =
runs the local chapter. Last year, someone dropped a 1908 gold Indian =
head coin enclosed in plastic into a kettle outside of Jo-Ann Fabrics.

After an appraisal, the coin ended up being sold to a local collector =
for $2,750.

On Tuesday, workers discovered the second coin as they were counting the =
day's collection. A $100 bill also was found in the barrel.

"I was amazed," Patrick said. "That was a really good kettle that =
night."=20
