This is a story that we could repeat several times as it has happened on more than one occasion.
I was speaking with a client in Texas who wanted to sell a quantity of gold coins. We had gone over pricing and our client was ready to, as they say “pull the trigger”. We started to look at prospective dates for a meeting for the following week, however, at that point the seller seemed to get cold feet. I inquired as to what was holding him back. He then confided in me that he had literally buried his coins on the edge of his property. As it so happened, his neighbor sometimes parked a trailer over the property line encompassing the burial site.
He then told me that his neighbor never parks it there for long and it would probably be clear at some point soon, and that he would retrieve them then. Our Buyer did meet with him, and purchased the unharmed coins. He even got to see the burial spot. Honest Injuin.
