REDFIELD HOARD HOUSE FOR SALE

Paul Williams of the Reno Coin Club, Nevada writes:

Check out this home I found on Zillow. This is the house where Lavere Redfield left his silver dollars in the basement.

Millionaire Redfield didn't trust banks. When he died some 680 bags of silver coins and 407,000 silver dollars were found in his Reno mansion. -Editor

From the 2014 article about Redfield's biography:

For many years, rumors have persisted that the more than 400,000 silver dollars found hidden in Redfield's garage and mansion after his death were only a part of his treasure, that more might be buried elsewhere.

Harpster isn't so sure.

"Personally, I don't believe so," he said, but then added. "If the house ever gets torn down, I hope they do it carefully."
