    Surely this was a bond bought in 1958, not a win from 1958?

    Yes, on the FB page the user said she had just won, on a bond from 1958. The win wasn't from 1958.

    Also, didn't realize how spam-infested MSE's facebook page was. Full of people promoting their own businesses/products. Isn't anyone cleaning this up?

    My first ever PB was 1 given as a birthday present in 1957 (I think!) - it won a prize for the first time earlier this year - 25!!
