A judge has ruled that ten gold coins possibly worth as much as $80 million and in the possession of a family for more than seventy years can be seized by the federal government without compensation.


Readers!
 
For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
 
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

  • Have to side with Uncle Sam on this one. This was apparently stolen property belonging to the people of the United States. As an aside, I don’t understand why the Government melted down these beautiful coins in the first place. Seems like they would store just as easily as bars. Maybe they wanted to make them harder to steal! :-)
