            A lot of people then did not have pockets. Handmade, styled or used/worn clothes there were less pockets and coins were kept on concealed strings/cords/necklaces. And..there have always been pick-pockets.

              Tom, you're right on the money. Also there was only cotton thread in those days, probably the reason so many were lost.
