IZZY SWITT'S SIEZED 1933 DOUBLE EAGLES ON DISPLAY

The Associated Press reported that the "Ten recently recovered
"double eagle" gold coins from 1933, among the rarest and most
valuable coins in the world, will go on public display next month
for the first time.

The coins will be on view Aug. 16-19 at the American Numismatic
Association's World's Fair of Money convention in Denver."

"The Mint has said that the 10 coins going on display in Denver
had been taken from the Philadelphia Mint "in an unlawful manner"
in the mid-1930s.

Joan Langbord found the coins among the possessions of her deceased
father, longtime Philadelphia jeweler Israel Switt. Her attorney,
Barry H. Berke, has previously said the Mint improperly seized the
coins when his client turned them over to the Mint to have them
authenticated."
