Coin World managing editor William T. Gibbs looks at inconsistent policies by the U.S. Mint about which coins are legal to own and which ones aren’t. Did you know that some patterns are legal while others can’t be owned?

Gee, I wonder what his feelings are on the Langbord case... you know, the decision he's not talking about. LOL
They lost. People need to get over it. Their relative was a sketchy character who had them smuggled out of the mint via a bribed employee, and thus he shouldn't have owned them in the first place...therefore he, and by extension his heirs, cannot have legal ownership. Sorry guys but you didn't win the lottery. Their best argument for owning them is that maybe, perhaps, possibly, there might have been a brief window where he maybe, perhaps, possibly, might have gotten them through the cashier prior to FDR's gold edict...yet there is no record of any available at the cashier window and no one else has ever come up with any other examples obtained this way. It's over folks. Give it up.
