of a the Spanish doubloons, having a fac? value of 517 and dated 1729, are in tl.e possession of Richard Veenfleit, Jr., of Schpharie, who is able to trace their ancestry back to t h historic German town Frankfort on - the - Main. Mathematically speaking, if the coins had been put to work at compound interest of stvcn r'er cent in 1729 and allowed to remain thus until 1933, the accumulative total would brought their owner approximately $1,000,000.
