1935 NEWSREEL ON BALTIMORE GOLD COIN HOARD DISCOVERED

Augsberger, "Treasure in the Cellar" Len Augsburger reports the discovery of a 1935 Universal newsreel covering the Baltimore gold hoard, located at the National Archives in College Park, MD. Depicted in the newsreel are the gold coins, the decaying container, and the two boys who located the hoard digging in a tenement cellar. The video will be included in Len's Numismatic Theatre presentation at the American Numismatic Association convention next month. Len's new book on the hoard, Treasure in the Cellar: A Tale of Gold in Depression-Era Baltimore is scheduled to go on sale at the convention.
