In 1853, an adventurer named William Walker set out to conquer Baja California with a group of 45 mercenaries. The American conqueror briefly succeeded in his venture before being forced to retread before the marching Mexican Army. Walker would return to Central America years later and temporarily conqueror Nicaragua. Could this 1853 gold dollar have been used by Walker to pay one of his mercenaries?
