Family had good reason to believe coins would be seized

Story gets retold in a manner that makes the family seem wounded and dumbstruck that the mean old treasury would keep their coins. They essentially dared the government to seize the contraband coins, which it did. There is no documentation that coins were lawfully sold, meaning they were stolen. Either granddad was a crook or a dupe, but they're not entitled to those coins.

They could have tried selling them gray market instead of daring the treasury to take them away by ludicrously asking for the treasury to authenticate them in order to vastly increase their value. That's what greed will do for ya.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.
