Loner Leaves $7.4 Million to Cousin ... in Gold Coins

by at . Comments

A Nevada loner left $7.4 million to a long-lost cousin who was his sole heir, according to reports ... and weirder still, the money was all in gold coins.

Walter Samaszko Jr., who neighbors described as a loner, passed away this summer, and medical examiners were shocked to find a small fortune.

In ammunition boxes, he amassed $7.4 million in gold coins.


The man had no close relatives, and the courts struggled to find his heir. Thanks to an old funeral document from the 1960s, they were able to locate a cousin in San Francisco.

Arlene Magdanz had not spoken to Samaszko in more than a year, but is now the sole inheritor of his millions ... which she may want to put in a bank. Just a thought.
