In 1875, agents from the Pinkerton Detective Agency were on the trail of Jesse James. In their search they sent agents to James’ mother’s house where she and Jesse’s thirteen year old brother lived. The agents proceeded to firebomb the house, killing the brother and injuring the mother. This 1875 Indian head cent recalls this misplaced attack.
