Description These coins were exposed to the A-bomb in the donor's home. At the time of the bombing, the donor's family was evacuated to the suburbs. However, the donor's father had returned home the day before to get some belongings. He was exposed to the bomb in his home and was pierced by pieces of broken glass. He treasured these melted coins through the post-war period and entrusted them to the donor just before he died.
