Silver Dollars from Butch Cassidy’s First Bank Heist?

     He was the outlaw with a heart of gold.  Yes, he robbed banks, stole horses and rustled cattle.  And yes, he almost blew up a train trying to get in the safe.  Yet when passengers on a train he was robbing tried to hand over their cash and valuables, he waved them off saying he wanted the railroad’s money … not theirs.  Born Robert Leroy Parker, the future Butch Cassidy robbed his first bank on June 24, 1889.  It was the San Miguel Valley Bank in Telluride, Colorado that fell victim to Cassidy and his team of outlaws.  They made off with over $24,000, which today would be an astonishing $750,000!  Legend has it that the outlaws then rode their horses down Main Street firing their six-shooters into the air.  The local sheriff tried to capture them, but they got away, and the money from the heist was never found.  Now you have the chance to own a Morgan Silver Dollar minted in the same year as this infamous robbery.  Each 90% pure silver coin is dated 1889, was struck at the Philadelphia Mint and is in Extremely Fine condition.  Were these coins part of Butch Cassidy’s lost loot?  No one can know for sure, but what is certain is these Morgan Silver Dollars are rich with the history of the Old West and are a great addition to any collection.  Don’t wait, order now!
