This is the grandfathers bad. He has stolen gold coins left in his safety deposit box after he dies. That's sweet, but for god sakes leave a note that says they're stolen The first place they took the coins to was the U.S. Treasury to authenticate them! But who knows, they may be able to strike a deal with Gov't like the other guy with a gold coin did, or even better, a judge awards them the coins, which I doubt very much will ever happen

Here are the simple facts of the great betrayal. Wilson and House knew that they were doing something momentous. One cannot fathom men’s motives and this pair probably believed in what they were up to. What they did not believe in was representative government. They believed in government by an uncontrolled oligarchy whose acts would only become apparent after an interval so long that the electorate would be forever incapable of doing anything efficient to remedy depredations. — EZRA POUND (St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, Washington, D.C. 1950)

Is it not possible that someone within treasury illegally sold these coins to unsuspecting purchasers? Or that they were misplaced?
Don't be so quick to rule out all possibilities.
