You Couldnt’ Write This If You Tried
With a script like something out of a Hollywood movie, one of America's rarest coins (with a pricetag of US$3 million) was recently re-discovered after having been believed missing for several decades. The mainstream media loves to beat up stories about little old ladies discovering rarities in their closets or some such, but this story really has to be seen to be believed.
In 1962, a US coin dealer that owned (among other things) a 1913 Liberty Head Nickel died in a car crash while on the way to an interstate coin show. The coin was thought to be lost, but was "re-discovered" by the heirs following a publicity campaign to flush it out several years back. This has to be made into a telemovie!
