A SIMCO Numismatics customer was burglarized for over $2,000,000 in coins and other personal property several days before Christmas. The Central Ohio owner used a large in-house safe, but it was brazenly taken from the home intact.

The owner, who would like to remain anonymous, is offering a substantial reward for information or assistance in recovering the property.
