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.

About the Author

Donald Gregg's first pair of shoes were moccasins, made by the Sioux. He has had a lifelong interest in Native Americans of the northern plains, particularly the Crow and the Blackfeet. His grandfather, Harry Renick Gregg, (1852-1950), told him many stories of the Old West, and of seeing Abraham Lincoln's funeral train, as a boy of twelve. Great Uncle Harry embodies him in this book.
Gregg wrote the first draft of this book in 1989, while awaiting Senate confirmation to become U.S. Ambassador to South Korea, where he served, 1989-93.

In 2014, Gregg's memoir, Pot Shards, Fragments of a Life Lived in CIA, the White House, and the Two Koreas, was published by New Academia Publishing in Washington, D. C.
