Storyline

Heretofore impecunious prospector Asa McQueen suddenly turns up in the town of Folkston paying off longstanding debts with new $100 bills and dropping hints about marrying his landlady. The manager of the Folkston Bank notifies the Highway Patrol after he confirms that the bills were part of $90,000 taken during a bank robbery several months earlier. Dan Mathews deduces that Asa found the money hidden on his claim. The thief, Brownie Osborne, learns that his stolen largesse has been found and he goes after the old prospector with a rifle. Dan arrives at the claim and finds that he must take a chance on getting within handgun range of the better-armed Osborne to try to save the wounded and defenseless Asa. Written by Sam Spear

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: There are many ways of striking it rich. Some do it with a prospector's pick, some with a gun. But Asa McQueen's strike on March 14th was an exception. It was an unusual discovery: paper - but a special kind of paper: large-denomination bills in United States currency.
