Notes from our travels across a mysterious world.

Ohio: Nickel-and-Dimed?

Apparently the Ohio government has invested some of its funds in rare coins. The Toledo Blade has the story.

Since 1998, Ohio has invested millions of dollars in the unregulated world of rare coins, buying nickels, dimes, and pennies.

Controlling the money for the state? Prominent local Republican and coin dealer Tom Noe, whose firm made more than $1 million off the deal last year alone.
