A rare coin returned to the Congress

A rare coin returned to the Congress
The story says that when in 1970s the copper prices went up, the United States Mint offered the Congress to start producing the aluminum coins to cut the costs. So the coins were made and sent to all the representatives of the Congress.

However, after the offer was denied, the coins were supposed to be abolished. Only three coins were left. One was saved in the capital city as a reminder of the reform; the other one was found on hand of one of the police officer who inherited it from a Congressman. The third and the last coin was given to Randall Lawrence by his father.

The family wanted to sell it for almost two million dollars. Unfortunately, the owner had to return the coin to the United States Mint as such relics cannot be inherited unless the Mint’s board makes that decision. So the Reuters claim that the Court made a decision that the penny should be given back to the governmental institution due to the uncertain origin of inheritance.скачать dle 10.6фильмы бесплатно
