Ooba Tooba: Wow. I am surprised the clean up crew reported the coins at all.
UpTheIrons66: Ooba Tooba: Wow. I am surprised the clean up crew reported the coins at all.This, I'm sure there was a good 3 wheelbarrows worth of gold, at one time.
Kaymon: That should amount to a small sack of gold coins, once Uncle Sam is through with it.
thisiszombocom: no, if youre a substitute teacher, the last thing you need is have to work in CT on fridays
zamboni: So what is that like 1 coin?I mean... how much are two wheelbarrows worth anyway?
TV's Vinnie: Isn't it illegal in the US to have any gold in coin form?
Rich Cream: Sigh. The man was a miser, not a hoarder.
Dear Jerk: 1. After gold prices becked in 1980, they stayed close to $300/ounce until they becked again recently.2. The appraisal may be giving book value to the coins. Good luck selling at that price.3. You can buy US gold denominational coins at right around melt value today.4. It's a nice haul at any rate and I would advise to sell.5. It was mostly illegal to own gold from 1933 thru 1974.
Ronin_S: In other news, a mild-mannered substitute teacher went missing today...Well, she sounds pretty sane, getting a court order and stuff. Hope she invests in some good security to keep the inevitable crooks from trying to sue her over ridiculous things or give her sob stories or kidnap her./think I'd go into hiding for a looonnngggg if I ever got that much money
CouldaWouldShoulda: And the best news of all...she can now afford to buy some 18 year old boys who just look younger to have sex with.
ur14me: WTF does "becked" mean?
abhorrent1: TV's Vinnie: Isn't it illegal in the US to have any gold in coin form?No. You used to need a license for some reason but that went away in the 70's. My grandfather was a coin collector and had a bunch of gold coins.
nealpolitan: I'm no lawyer but having experienced it, it is standard practice that an executor of an estate gets a cut of the estate. Usually it's set out in a will but in the case of a death without a will - each State has guidelines for executor compensation.
JonnyG: I don't even have to read the story to know that possession of these gold coins is illegal, so they will be forfeited to the authorities.
Suckmaster Burstingfoam: The estate tax is presently 35%, but you get your first $10M free.If there's no fiscal cliff deal it goes up to 37-55% after the first $1M.Funny enough, both Fartbongo and Boner are aiming to avoid that estate tax. Because I guess it's wrong to tax the rich. Here's an article on the sitrep this second.
