George Washington's wallet was returned to New Jersey on Monday, almost three weeks after it disappeared from a display case at the Old Barracks Museum.
But the owners, who have not been identified and who had loaned it to the museum, are out roughly $1.66 in colonial currency. Two bills, one worth two-thirds of a dollar and printed in 1776 and a 1779 dollar bill, were in the wallet when it was stolen and missing when it was returned.The wallet was returned by Eric Davis, a Doylestown, Pa., lawyer, who said he was acting on behalf of a client who wishes to remain anonymous. The lawyer has said his client did not steal the wallet.
Davis thought Presidents' Day was a suitable day for the return.
