Stolen Copper Coins Recovered

On July 7, 2014 the Numismatic Crime Information Center sent out an e-mail crime alert regarding the missing/stolen report of 7 early copper coins from a United States Postal Service shipment. Two days later a dealer contacted NCIC and advised that he possibly had bought coins matching the description of those stolen. Due to the quick actions of several dealer’s all seven coins have been recovered.

The U.S. Postal Inspectors are conducting an on-going investigation.
