The Numismatic Crime Information Center (NCIC) is asking for the public’s help in locating a stolen or missing FedEx package. The package contained hundreds of American Eagles, some of which were raw and others had been graded by NGC.
The package containing the hundreds of Eagles was shipped priority overnight from Dallas, Texas to Beverly Hills, California on April 21, 2021. However, the package never arrived and FedEx is currently not able to locate it. In the package were American Eagles in palladium and silver. Here is a complete list of coins that are missing:
- 5 (Five) 2017 American Eagle Palladium coins graded MS-70
- 221 (Two Hundred-Twenty-One) American Eagle Silver coins raw and in 2×2 flips
- 44 (forty-Four) American Eagle Silver coins graded MS-70 by NGC dating from 1986 to 2002
Collectors and dealers are asked to be on the look out for these coins as, if they were stolen, the thief could try to get rid of them 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 one of these rare coins coming into their shop. The raw coins will be more difficult to locate but the graded American Eagles from NGC should make it easier.
If you have any information on these coins 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.
