How much are they at now
WILL THESE BE GIVEN THE SAME INVESTIGATION AS THE 1933 DOUBLE EAGLES?
Just another example of how government employees take advantage of their position and the feds do nothing to stop it. These coins should be confiscated by the feds and placed in the national coin collection in the Smithsonian.
Your correct, this is or was a federal crime. But....the guy who may have stole them is dead. However, they should be collected and put into a museum. If it were us that did this they would be.
As part of the law passed by congress that eliminated gold coins, it was made legal to own patterns. This was because the Secretary of the Treasury William Woodin was a pattern collector!
That first high-relief pattern is a beauty! It looks like pewter, but it'll have a 24K gold price tag, for sure!
