In 1917, Leopold Michels was indicted along with 147 others in a conspiracy to supply German ships in the Pacific and attempt to start a revolution in India against the British. The case was called “Germany’s gigantic conspiracy against American neutrality” and included mostly a group in San Francisco. Could this 1917 half dollar, minted in San Francisco, have been used in the planning of this “gigantic conspiracy”?
