Happens at every major coin show. Why would someone who has $4million dollars on their person NOT have private security with them. Give me a break.

Was thinking the same thing Art. If was me or you, I'd feel terrible and do what I could to help rebuild the collection, but a major dealer carrying that kinda of coin(pun intended) should have 2 guards. Jeez even getting the best security firm should only cost a grand or so.

 

I'm glad no one was injured.

Yes I agree as well, I mentioned this news to my hubby and he suspected that this could have been an 'inside job'. Someone who knew when, how, what time the lot was going to be moved. So sad.. :ninja: I hope he is able to recover at least some of them if not all.
