    The PJ Tatler » Gold Treasure Trove Shocker: Coins Likely Stolen from Mint in 1899; Finders of $10 Million Must Return It ALL to the Federal Government

    "Remember the California couple who found $10 million in gold coins on their property? They’re probably going to end up with NOTHING in the final analysis, as breaking news from San Francisco reveals that the source of the mystery gold has been discovered:"

    "The details of the 1899 heist — $30,000 face value of uncirculated gold coins stolen from the San Francisco Mint in 1899 — matches every known fact about the gold coins found recently in the Sierra foothills, which were nearly $30,000 in face value of uncirculated mint condition coins mostly made at the San Francisco Mint in the late 1800s."

    The lesson . . . Keep your mouth shut.
    As my mother often told me: "Tell the truth but you don't need to tell everything you know!!!"

    I always wonder why people don't shut the "heck" up when things like this happen.

    DUH!

    IF there lucky they may get a very small reward.

    Shulda kept their mouths shut. And perhaps given serious though to laundering it somehow. If they wanted to go that route all they would have had to do was consult with their friendly neighborhood drug dealer. Dummies.

    US Government Says Time Capsule Coins Weren't Stolen From Them In 1901

    “There is nothing connecting these coins to any theft from the Mint,” U.S. Mint spokesman Adam Stump told SF Gate. “We’ve done quite a bit of research, and we’ve got a crack team of lawyers, and trust me, if this was U.S. government property we’d be going after it.”

    Can't believe how dumb people are. It is like posting pics of your gun collection on line for the world to see almost forever.
