1804 DOLLAR FOUND IN CHINA 

   Just when you've thought you'd heard every cockamamie 
   story about someone finding an 1804 dollar, along comes 
   another one.  We last visited this perennial subject in the 
   January 23, 2000 issue (Volume 3, Number 4), after an 
   ad appeared in COIN WORLD offering a "$25,000 
   REWARD for the location  and legitimate recovery of my 
  1804 SILVER DOLLAR."  The full issue is archived on our 
   web site at this address: 
   http://www.coinbooks.org/club_nbs_esylum_v03n04.html 

   Nearly a year later, we're treated to a web site titled 
   "King of Kings of American Dollar?", where the author 
   (whose English needs some work) notes:  "I have 
   discovered an incredible coin in China. The 1804 dollar 
   to be precisely. "  Quoting from the web pages: 

   "The main purpose here is not to make my simulation one true 
   event. Rather my attempt is to draw interests to my collection. 
   Just in case this coin of mine is a genuine one. This much I 
   must do on my site so that other researchers can direct their 
   attentions on unexplored water." 

   "This coin was purchased in a Chinese flea market where most 
   items were once owned by families for decades if not centuries. 
   The very point of purchase in itself constitutes a strong case." 

   The site includes illustrations of the coin - see for yourself.

   Perhaps one of you "other researchers" out there would like 
   to render an opinion...
