If you're the one who donated the 1923 Liberty silver US Dollar to the Pirate Booty exchange thing I hosted a while back you might like to see this. Others might think it kind of cool as well.

I sent the silver dollar along with one my dad had once given me to a fellow in Leicester, England. He takes coins and domes them, then adds a straight or threaded shaft, turning then into a pill box, snuff box, whatever.

This is what he did for me. A snuff box, screws together, with a rubber O ring to make it air/water tight.

Yeah, I'm kinda prone to heavily overbuilt stuff. You know, run over it with a truck and you can't tell.
