Rick’s Pedigree Coins – Reno Casino Hoard 1996 - Littleton Coin Company


Reno Casino Hoard 1996


 
My final lost hoard from 1996 is the Reno Casino Hoard.  Again, thanks to Littleton Coin Company, the hoard has been remembered in an article they published on coin hoards:

“For 20 years, Rudy, a Reno, Nevada casino worker, traded his own money for Carson City Morgans whenever he spotted them in the coins he sorted through daily. As Morgans grew scarcer, he began “saving” all silver dollars. By Rudy's retirement, he had amassed 4,100 silver dollars including more than 3,312 Morgans. In the hoard, Littleton's buyers discovered scarce “O over S” Morgans, created when a San Francisco reverse die was repunched with an “O”.”

Littleton Coin Company has served the coin collecting hobby since 1945 and provide a wide variety of coins and coin supplies.  I purchased from them in the 1970’s and received outstanding, professional service.  And I continued to make purchases from them as recent as last year (the Ike dollar from the Big Sky Hoard that appears in my book “Rick’s Legacy – Pedigree & Hoard / Coins & Currency”) and still receive the same professional service I received 40 years earlier.  Browse their website and if you have any questions, give them a call.   I think you will be impressed with their service.
