    --Hello, all.

    Years ago, I remember reading that US fighter pilots carried several (like, 38, if I recall correctly) gold coins sewn into their flight webbing, to buy their way out of trouble if they got shot down. (Gold having been worth less than $40.00 per ounce through most of the conflict-- it is less than absurd to believe that this is true).

    Can any of you verify this, and-- do any of you own such things? It would be an interesting to see, if you do.

    Cheers,

    --Dan

    Ask the USMF this question.
    There are several on that forum who could help you on this.
