The coin was shipped via FedEx from Florida to Texas but has now been reported missing or stolen. The packages last known location was in Lubbock, Texas but cannot be located.
The package contained a rare Saint Gaudens Double Eagle which fortunately had been graded by PCGS. The Coin is a 1907 High Relief Wire Rim Saint Gaudens Double Eagle with PCGS certification 60010073. According to sources, the coin is valued at over $24,000.
Collectors and dealers are asked to be on the look out for this coin as, if it were stolen, the thief could try to get rid of it quickly at a price “too good to be true”. Dealers, coin shop owners, and pawn shop owners in particular are encouraged to be on the look out for this rare coin coming into their shop. Given that the coin have been graded by PCGS, that should help in identifying and recovering of it with a bit of help and attention from the community.
NCIC and the numismatic public has already been helpful in the recovery of multiple coins that have been stolen in 2021 and late 2020 so these public pleas make a big difference in finding coins in these situations.
If you have any information on this coin or see any of them in your shop or online, you can contact Doug Davis at 817-723-7231 or Doug@numismaticcrimes.org with details. You can also contact your local police department who can contact NCIC.
