Re: Judge Says 10 Rare Gold Coins Worth $80 Million Belong to Uncle Sam

A sad day for American collectors. In my opinion, a very poor decision by the judge.

Take for instance the 1964 US Peace Dollars, produced by the mint, and legally sold to mint employees. Upon the decision to ultimately not release these pieces, and melt the entire mintage, what of the employee or former employee who did not return the coin(s), as requested? I am certain there are examples out there, arguably as rare as the 1933 double eagle. I suspect these coins will remain underground until such a time as when the "rules" for such ownership lighten up.

I believe the ownership of either coin is more "legitimate" than the ownership of a 1913 Liberty Head nickel.
