“Don’t be above bending over to check on a rusty can:” CA Couple Finds $10 M in Rare Coins While Out Walking Dog

From Fox News:

A Northern California couple out walking their dog on their Gold Country property stumbled across a modern-day bonanza: $10 million in rare, mint-condition gold coins buried in the shadow of an old tree.

Nearly all of the 1,427 coins, dating from 1847 to 1894, are in uncirculated, mint condition, said David Hall, co-founder of Professional Coin Grading Service of Santa Ana, which recently authenticated them. Although the face value of the gold pieces only adds up to about $27,000, some of them are so rare that coin experts say they could fetch nearly $1 million apiece.

They had been walking around this property for years. Sometimes a fortune is right under our noses, but we just don’t see it.
