Remember the recluse in Nevada who died in June 2012? After his death, a cleaning crew discovered that his garage was filled with gold bullion and coins. Authorities searched for an heir and finally found a cousin (see Kovels Komments, Dec. 26, 2012, and March 6, 2013). The gold bullion was sold in February 2013 for $3.5 million. This month (August 2013), the 2,000 coins were sold for more than $3.1 million. Some of the coins, however, were discovered to be counterfeit--so buyers had the right of return if a coin was fake.
