Dear White's,

The square coin that I found on a Florida beach with my friends Paul and Tom last year could change American history. The coin has been identified by the American numismatic association from the Mauryan Empire issued in 321 BC after the death of Alexander the great. If the coin was lost by a Mauryan tribesmen during that time period it could mean that America was discovered 2000 years before Columbus.

The Mauryans were a very advance civilization from India and traveled extensively. If I get credit for the recovery Columbus Ohio may need to be renamed and the state workers will lose a holiday. Don’t worry I will implement a new holiday where everyone gets the day off to go metal detecting.

Happy New Year.
