The Numismatic Crime Information Center, NCIC, is asking for collectors and dealers help in finding a lost or stolen package. The package was destined for Florida and was last tracked in White River Junction, VT on July 1, 2020. The package contained several international coins. At this time, USPS is unable to provide additional tracking information on the package. Additionally, the package cannot be located within the United States Post Service systems or locations.
Below is a list of the international coins that were in the missing or stolen package:
- Central American Republic 1847-CR 1/2 Escudo NGC MS62 (cert # 2767802-004)
- Guatemala 1874-P 5 Pesos raw BU
- Guatemala 1926 20 Quetzals raw BU
- Italy-Naples & Sicily 1767 6 Ducati raw BU
- Peru 1854-Lima MB 2 Escudos NGC MS63 (cert # 3807875-007)
- Poland 1834 3 Roubles-20 Zlotych raw AU
The NCIC and USPS asking that if you have seen any of these international coins that you contact Doug Davis at 817-723-7231 or Doug@numismaticcrimes.org.
If indeed the coins have been stolen, the 1854 Puruvian and 1847 Central American Republic coins will be the easiest to locate given they have been graded by NGC. Dealers and Numismatists are encourage to be on the look out for the graded coins as well as the others. A quick look on eBay this morning did not find any of these coins listed for sale.
