The Crooked Man (UN-C-1732)
The man who he lost the coin to, Farmer Boldwood, was not so fortunate. On receiving the coin from Mr Malley, Boldwood assured of his success, bought all the land from his farming neighbours.

For a while he prospered greatly, and seeing the future was not in farming but in property, sold his newly acquired land to developers for an ever-greater profit.

But in his obsession he had given little thought to the hundreds of workers employed as farmhands. Before long, the local area had no income, and once prosperous workers had barely enough to survive. It is presumed that it was one of these disgruntled farm hands that attacked and murdered farmer Boldwood one night, as he returned home. The coin, once again was not found on his person and was presumed lost during the violent attack.
