Dirk: Admiral, have you ever seen a confederate gold dollar?
Sandecker: (annoyed) Oh dear God, don't start this again.
Dirk: Of course not, because the Confederacy never made a gold dollar. The mint was destroyed at the end of the war.
Sandecker: I beg you on my hands and knees, don't.
Dirk: But not before Jefferson Davis had five samples made. He gave four of those samples to his top generals: Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Jeb Stuart and Johnston.
Sandecker: Every time we come to Africa outcomes that stupid ship model, outcomed the old port generals. We're leaving for Australia tomorrow.
Dirk: Four of those samples have been found. But the fifth never was. That one was given to an old family friend of Davis, a brilliant young sea captain named Mason Tombs. Captain of the CSS ironclad Texas. (producing the coin and handing it to Sandecker)
