An alert E-Sylum reader pointed out that the New York Times article about Japanese chrysanthemum gold coins referenced recently was not a new story - it was actually from May 20, 1992.
Sorry I managed to miss that - somehow it turned up in one of my searches of recent newspaper articles, and I didn't notice the publication date. So, does anyone know how the story turned out? Were the coins returned to dealer Paul Davies? Or were they declared counterfeit and confiscated?
