2012-10-18

16 American and Mexican coins more than 200 years old were seized by customs officers at the Kalotina checkpoint after a check on a train travelling from Bulgaria to Serbia. The coins were found hidden in the roof of the train.
The coins are made of white metal, probably silver, and have different value. They are very beautiful and well-preserved, despite that some of them date back to the year 1800. The numismatic treasure was found in a hallow space in the roof in train's corridor.
Work on the case cotninues.
