In the mid 1980s, Donald P. Gregg bought two U.S. silver dollars, both dated 1882, from a peddler outside the ancient Roman ruin of Jerash in Jordan, and wondered how they had gotten there, how they were spent, and in whose pockets they had traveled. Gregg’s purchase sparked The Scarred Double Eagle the story of a twenty dollar gold piece, dated 1862.
