Currency dealer robbed

2 posts in this topic

At the Parsippany show Sunday I heard of a currency dealer robbed last month of $800K of inventory, I did speak with the dealer to verify the story but did not get his name and have not seen a list of the notes stolen. Does anyone have a link to this crime?


I spoke to a major show dealer today (Feb.5) who said the robbery happened leaving the Westchester show Saturday night on January 18th.
