Watched a kid's NetFlix movie with my 9 year-old daughter last night and we came across the movie The Legend of Tillamook's Gold it is a low budget kids film with a pretty simplistic plot, but when we were looking for a movie and I read the description of

"When 14-year-old Julie (Suzanne Marie Doyon) relocates to Manzanita, Ore., with her parents and sister, she has difficulty getting used to small-town life -- until she stumbles upon an ancient gold coin and learns about the legend of the Tillamook Treasure. With the help of a history lesson from her grandfather and a Native American elder, Julie goes searching for the buried treasure and, in the process, learns what is truly precious in life.

I couldn't pass it up. I believe the coins shown were supposed to be 16th century Spanish gold.

(We gave it 3 stars; though my daughter thought it was 4 and I'd have done 2.)

TCM recently played "Her Majesty, Love." This 1931 movie was one of a very few W. C. Fields films I hadn't already seen, as it was out of circulation until recently. The movie is set in Germany, and there's a scene in which Fields seemingly tips a butler with a thaler, to the butler's delight. When the recipient examines the coin, it is now a small piece such as a 5 or 10 pfennig, revealing both Fields' character and his skill with slight of hand. I couldn't identify the thaler with certainty, but it was an old coin even then, perhaps 1780s-1800 or so.

Just catching up my DVR recordings and started watching the new TV Series "Alphas" on the SyFy channel.

In the first episode one of the guys has amazing aim and throws quarters into a soda machine from across the room.

In the second episode another guy uses a quarter to escape from captivity in the back of a truck.

In the trailer for the new Sherlock Holmes movie they show a bunch of barber halves being thrown into a hat. I was so startled that I didn't catch the dates but they looked to be at least vg ;\)

On Buried Treasure on Fox last night with the Keno brothers from Sotherby's they were at an Ohio "Treasure House" they found numerous gold coins throughout the house hidden in places like the vents. But what really was cool was they found a 1780 Libertas Americanas. Very Cool

Bonanza episode: "The saga of Annie O'Toole" showed a chest full of Morgans. It was supposedly $25,000 Plus, stacks of Morgans were shown in Annie's restaurant at the mining claims site.
