Rare Coin Theft Netted Nearly a Million$ -- Maybe More?

Museums hate to admit theft by employees though it's fairly common. They'd as soon hush it up as deal with the bad publicity -- they thrive, often, on donors and don't want to spook them. This case seems resolved though. But you have to wonder, this wasn't just a custodian popping something into his pocket, this guy had oversight of a huge collection of rarities. Maybe ANA has a great inventory system. Or maybe the guy is smiling in the pix because he knows what wasn't found?

  1. It's sad that there are people doing this things for a little money. Hopefully museums can get honest employee and more security.
