Wild story with this one. This man at age like 88 or 90, threw three boxes off the bride then jumped off the bridge in Hartford and committed suicide. The three boxes floated down the river and some guy pulled them out of the river several miles down river. These items were in those boxes along with 430 OZS of WWII dated silver bars. I didn't get the bars unfortunately. I got these items threw a couple people. I didn't know the guy who pulled these out of the river.
