You heard about this, right? A news report said the couple found $10Mil in gold coins on their property and the government was going to claim $5 million of the treasure. Well, it's just getting worse now. You have to kind of laugh at it. I suppose they thought they were going to get a book offer out of it and make another $5M to make up for the government's take. Isn't there a statute of limitations on this?
"A California couple who found a stash of buried gold coins valued at $10 million may not be so lucky after all. The coins may have been stolen from the US Mint in 1900 and thus be the property of the government, according to a published report.
"The couple is trying to remain anonymous after finding the five cans of coins last spring on their Tiburon property in northern California and conducted an interview with Kagin."
