AUTHOR­I­TIES SEEK OWNER OF GOLD STASHED IN PI­ANO

The Denver Post - - NEWS -

lon­don» Bri­tish of­fi­cials are try­ing to trace the owner of a trove of gold coins worth a “life-chang­ing” amount of money found stashed in­side a pi­ano.

A coro­ner in­ves­ti­gat­ing the find Thurs­day urged any­one with in­for­ma­tion to come for­ward.

When the pi­ano’s own­ers took it to be tuned last year in Shrop­shire, Eng­land, it was found to con­tain a hoard of gold sov­er­eigns minted be­tween the mid-19th and early 20th cen­turies.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors have de­ter­mined that the pi­ano was built in Lon­don in 1906 and sold to a pair of pi­ano teach­ers in Saf­fron Walden, Eng­land. They are seek­ing in­for­ma­tion on its own­er­ship be­fore 1983.

Any­one want­ing to make a claim has un­til April 20, when coro­ner John Ellery will con­clude his in­quest.
