This photo shows the Old U.S. Mint Tuesday, March 4, 2014, in San Francisco. The National Historic Landmark operated from 1874 to 1937. The word last week that a California couple found $10 million in gold coins while walking their dog on their rural property has set off a virtual Gold Rush of theories about where the cash might have come from: Jesse James' gang deposited it there over the years in hopes of financing a second Civil War. It was the famous California outlaw Black Bart's Booty. Author Forrest Fenn was just trying to fool us when he said he left his Fenn Treasure in Colorado's Rocky Mountains. The theory gaining the most traction this week is that the cash came from the 1901 theft of $30,000 in gold coins from the U.S. Mint in San Francisco. Mint officials said Monday they have researched the theft and find no evidence connecting it to the couple’s find. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg) less
