A collection of rare presidential coins have been returned to the Benton County Historical Society. They were recovered following narcotics raid in Multnomah County in May.
In 2005, the Benton County Historical Society acquired the Horner Collection from Oregon State University when the campus branch museum closed. The collection was missing some rare presidential coins, which were stolen sometime during the late 1960’s or early 70’s. Irene Zenev is the Executive Director for the Benton County Historical Society. She’s happy to have the coins back.
