The Numismatic Crime Information Center, NCIC, is asking for the public and collector’s help in recovering several stolen coins recently in Minnesota. The theft took place at the Moorhead Antique Mall in Moorhead, Minnesota on August 5, 2020. All of the stolen coins were foreign coins which, fortunately, have been certified by either NGC or PCGS.
Here is a rundown of the coins that were stolen and their certification information:
- Austria, 2K ( Kreuzer), Salzburg, dated 1715, NGC graded MS 63,Certification #702118-015
- Austria, 3K (Kreuzer), Hall, dated 1644, NGC graded MS 64,Certification #1756524-013
