What does 1007QM RSQ boat crew mean on the bottom of a military headstone?

The Army Air Force 1007th Quartermaster Rescue Boat unit rescued air crews of downed planes in the North Atlantic and North Sea. They were assigned to the 3rd Air Force in 1941 - 45. They used boats that were something like the size of the PT boat (74 - 84 feet in length). It was undoubtedly rather hazardous duty due to German aircraft, shore batteries, E-boats, etc.

Piano piece in tombstone the movie?

I note several sites asking but no clues until I hit on a PianoWorld.com forum...
Josh asked & Wayne answered...'I think it's Chopin's Noctune #19 in E minor, Opus 72 No. 1.'
I believe he is correct. I have been listening to the scene on my DVD of TOMBSTONE versus a great clip of that piece by a brilliant pianist ( 'Sviatoslav Richter plays Chopin Nocturne E Minor, Op. 72, #1' ) on YouTube.
It is hard to be certain considering the wonderfully appropriate tinniness of the poorly maintained upright, the dialogue and Val Kilmer's portrayal of an inebriates version of this nocturne in the film but I think it's a match.
After several reviews of the movie scene and the web clip it seems that Doc is playing early in the piece (about 25 seconds into the clip).
I may be wrong but it was certainly worth watching clips of one my favorite movies and listening to Richter playing anything, let alone Chopin.

What is the significance of coins on a tombstone?

I'm not very sure the accuracy of this, but I've seen on television (History Channel? Discovery?) that ancient Greeks and later on Romans left a pile of coins over the tombstone of the departed loved ones. The coins were meant to pay Charonte (in the greek mythology it was the entity responsible for delivery the death over the Lethe River). The Lethe River was believed to erase all the memory of the deaths. Nowadays I've heard and seen some tombstones with coins engraved but don't know the true meaning.
