Lucky find in hotel.
During the demolition of the old Royal Hotel, Guyra, one of the workmen, in dismantling a window-sash in the bath room, found three half-sovereigns, the oldest dated 1883. Some traveller, possibly, had placed the coins on the window sill preparatory to having a morning shower, and the little gold pieces must have fallen into a crevice and were forgotten. The coins were well preserved. Several more half-sovereigns were found in clearing up the debris.
