    Really? Just like the 1933 St. Gaudens $20 gold piece that never existed.

  2. Steve says:

    Well if some went to the “Assay office” and were indeed “sent to Washington” you can bet your bottom dollar that at least one and maybe a few still exist out there. Problem is whoever has them can’t reveal that they are.

  3. Leo says:

    What about the ones that were sent to Washington, that triggered the phone call to Denver to stop production? Where did those end up?

  4. dean parrish says:

  5. Jonny says:

    dean-

    yes, I’m sure eventually they will surface. and then, just like the 1933 double eagle, the government will seize them.
