THEFT OF RARE FRENCH REVOLUTION DIE AND MEDAL
Two rare and possibly unique French Revolution numismatic items, one die and one medal, were recently reported stolen by ANA Life Member Stephen Abraham. The package containing both items was en route from France to California. The theft most likely took place when the package went through U.S. Customs in New York.
Abraham, who paid $800 for the items says, “The two pieces are extremely distinctive and would be recognized by any collector of the period.”
The American Numismatic Association will pay a reward up to $5,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of any person committing burglary, theft or robbery of numismatic items from a member of the Association. For specific information about the ANA’s reward program, please visit the ANA website at www.money.org and click on “Consumer Awareness.”
