Buried Treasure Found in Mount Vernon, New York
Last Saturday, we found some buried treasure in Mt. Vernon, NY. Our client handed us a small desk to toss into the truck. On a hunch, we decided to look in the draw for any personal possessions before throwing it away. What we found, was historical. In an old cardboard box located in the back of the drawer, were US silver dollars dating back to the late 1800’s along with nickels and dimes laying on a bed of other coins from around the world. Our client, who was a veteran himself, had a father who served in WWII. He said his father collected coins amongst his travels and our client was looking for them for years.
We returned them to the rightful owner and he will now pass it on to his children. Here is a pictures of the precious coins, below.
