A boy picks up a historic gold bar on display at the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum in Key West, Fla., on Thursday. Thieves stole a $550,000 gold bar from a treasure museum where it went on display after it was recovered from the wreck of a Spanish galleon, which lay on the ocean floor for centuries, the museum's executive director said. The 74.85-ounce gold bar was stolen on Aug. 18.
