KERENS, TEXAS GOLD COIN HOARD UPDATE

Dave Ginsburg writes: "My thanks to those who have written about
the Kerens, TX hoard of gold coins that I asked about a few weeks
ago.  I've discussed the hoard with members of the Navarro County
(Texas) Historical Society and it is generally believed that the
hoard represents the accumulated savings of the owners of a large
cotton plantation - so it looks like I can forget any colorful
bank robbery stories!

However, the presence of so many San Francisco double eagles is
intriguing, especially in light of John Kleeberg's 1999 article
in American Journal of Numismatics #11 about the mint-marked coins
found in 1936 in the Hull, TX hoard.  I'm still in the midst of my
research, so I'd welcome any additional information."
