2 posts in this topic

"After two years of study, scientists say a gold bar on display at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History is a fraud.


The nearly five-ounce ingot is part of a huge coin display at the museum's National Numismatic Collection. It was thought to have been made in 1857 by Justh & Hunter company in Marysville, Calif.


But researchers said it's more likely the bar dates only to the 1950s." - CNN
