Report: $25,000 rare coin stolen after daughter throws a party
Thursday, June 21, 2012

LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the theft of a rare coin valued at $25,000.

According to an incident report, officers responded to a larceny call at a home located on Paula Court on June 14.

Deputies say they met with the homeowner who stated that a rare coin was taken from his residence.

The owner stated the coin was an 1876 San Francisco Trade Silver Dollar in brilliant uncirculated condition, the report stated.

Deputies say the owner told them the coin had tar stains on the bottom the back side of it and an estimated value of $25,000.

The homeowner told deputies he believes the coin was stolen when he went out of town three weeks ago and left his daughter home alone, the report stated.

The owner told deputies he believes one of his daughter’s friends may have taken the coin after she threw a party and passed out from drinking, deputies say.

According to the report, the coin was not in a safe, it was left out so the family could sell it, if anything ever happened to the owner.
