GREATEST COIN THEFTS 

   Dr. Hoge's note inspires a question - what are the top 
   coin thefts in numismatic history?   In the field of U.S. 
   numismatics the theft of coins from the Joseph Mickley 
   collection comes to mind, as does the Dupont theft of 
   important U.S. rarities, several of which were recovered 
   many years later.   Please send in any interesting stories 
   relating to coin thefts, and ideally, where are the thefts are 
   documented.
