Is it just me, or does Waxman look like a satanic Porky Pig to anyone else?

Actual there are thousands of them just try a search on the Executive order 6012 for it did happen once and I am assuming from your question you did not know this. Maybe I misunderstood your question.

I’m aware of the confiscation order of 1933. There were people who had gold bars on deposit who had their wealth stolen, but that isn’t the same as confiscating contents of safe deposit boxes.

So if you can find a cite, that would be interesting (it isn’t up to me to prove you wrong since you’re making the claim). In any case it’s really sad how the government basically stole the wealth of the nation like that.
The good news, it’s a trick that only works once.

No, that’s not a source.

Classic example of why people need to source PRIMARY sources and documents. There are copies of the original order available through .gov in .PDF form, there is no mention of silver confiscation (duh) nor anything about safe deposit boxes. Most people back then learned of it at their Post Office, on a large poster with the text of the executive order.

Austin rare coins just wants to scare people into buying numismatic coinage under the implication that those types of coins wouldn’t be stolen for some reason, and without regard to that are posting bogus versions of presidential XOs. Pretty scurvy.

I thought that when FDR confiscated gold in 1933, he was doing that because he was trying to build-up Federal gold bullion and that only rare, collectable coins were exempt? Nicki Douglas
