NO SILVER DOLLARS OF 1905
Should Anybody Produce One It Will
no n Counterfeit.
(New York Sun.)
Many Inquiries have been received re
garding the item recently published in
the "Sun" that $1,0.0 is offered for e
silver dollar of FA",. The irm who made
tht: offer stands by It and believes tint
almost any coin dealer would double it,
rn the ground that 119 silver dollars were
coined in YMC, as no law was passed
authorizing the secretary nf H13 treasury
tn coin them.
At the end of 1D0I the quantity of sil
ver dollars In circulation was so great
that no nccchsity wt..s felt of continuing
their coinage. Besides. the imount nf
bullion available for the purpose was at
that time limited. It Is possible that
the coinage of silver dollars may be re
sumed this year.
flnvernment officials In this ( Ity said
veslerriay that counterfeit 1W sliver dol
lars are likely to turn up ns a icsult of
the Item printed In the "Sun." Whenever
a nn miuni Is offered for silver dollars
the counterfeiters become very busy, b
cause they are able to put even more
silver Into a dollar than the, government
does and still make a handsome profit
provided they don't get caught.
