Summary
"For down-and-out junk dealer Don, life goes form unlucky to unbearable when he discovers that the rare buffalo head nickel he just sold for $90 is worth ten times as much! Refusing to let himself be out-swindled, Don enlists the help of a young protégé in a scheme to steal the coin back. But their plans are suddenly altered by the intrusion of Teach, a disturbingly aggressive would-be thief who badgers Don into cutting him in on the heist-- a decision that carries explosive consequences for everyone involved"--Container
