Revisit at $5.5M Heist

January 7 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Http://historicnewton.org

On the evening of December 1, 1973 a brown paper bag was left with the security guard at the Harvard Fogg Art Museum. This insignificant act  led to the largest rare coin heist in history. Little did anyone know that over 12,000 rare Greek coins and metals would be stolen, their value totaling $5.5 million. How did the robbers pull it off? Was it an inside job? Were the coins ever found? Learn about this infamous heist, and the collector of the coins, Arthur Stone Dewing.

Free admission; donations welcome. For information, call 617-641-9142.
