A criminal complaint is filed in Clark County Justice Court by David Walters, who says his coin collection was taken from a family member’s home by his niece, Jennifer Beckman. Beckman sold the collection to Gold and Silver Pawn for $9,550 on three separate visits to the store. Walter’s claims his collection is worth $50,000. A rep from the store says:
To the best of my knowledge, as the coins are unidentifiable, they may have been melted down. They may have been sold. They may be in buckets with like coins waiting to be evaluated. Either way, they weren’t worth the $50,000 Walters had estimated.
