Even though the gold coins of the Saddle Ridge Hoard may be out of reach for some collectors, they can still own the story with the offer of the 30 page Saddle Ridge Hoard Treasure Brochure, available for basically just the cost of shipping.
The Saddle Ridge Hoard represents the greatest find of buried treasure in United States history. While taking their dog for a daily walk across their property, a couple came across a canister partially jutting out of the ground at the edge of the path. After dislodging the can with a stick and carrying it back to their house, they found gold double eagles mixed in with the dirt and stones. A total of eight cans were eventually recovered, containing 1,427 U.S. gold coins with a face value of $27,980 and estimated market value of more than $10 million.
One of the most significant aspects of the hoard was the pristine condition of the coins included. Following independent authentication and grading, the hoard was found to represent at least fourteen finest known specimens. A group containing the fourteen finest known or tied for finest known double eagles has been priced at $2,750,000.
The 30 page Saddle Ridge Treasure Brochure which tells the story of this fantastic discovery is priced at only $0.01 plus a shipping and handling charge of $5.99.
The brochure comes with a free three month online membership to the American Numismatic Association, a free Washington Quarter collecting folder, and a free three month trial of the Red Book online compliments of Whitman Publishing.
