Simon Constable: Who in the world is falling for Ron Paul dollars?

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Simon Constable of TheStreet.com went out on to the streets of New York with one of Liberty Dollar's Ron Paul silver coins (drop dead, Big Brother; we can say "coin" if we want to!) to try to find anyone who confused it with U.S. government currency, such confusion having been cited by the FBI as justification for its seizure of Liberty Dollar's inventory in Indiana and Idaho six weeks ago. But Constable couldn't find anyone who mistook the Liberty Dollar coin for government currency. Indeed, Constable seems not to have found anyone who could even recognize the intrinsic value of the silver in the coin.

That is, people well may have been confused, but not in the way alleged by the FBI.

So if there's any mania out there, it still seems to be for the sort of money issued by the Federal Reserve, not for the sort made from precious metals.

Constable's futile search for someone deceived by Liberty Dollar is titled "Who in the World is Falling for Ron Paul Dollars?" and you can find it here:
