A CUT ABOVE
A CUT ABOVE
At the headquarters of the Gemological Institute of America, 300 diamond graders peer into microscopes and ponder gems lined up on light tables. They work behind man-trap doors - where one door must close completely before another opens. Security guards scan the floor from nearby stations.

These workers are grading diamonds for color, clarity, cut and carat weight - the "Four Cs" created by the GIA more than a half century ago to determine a diamond's quality.

UNSETTLED ABE
UNSETTLED ABE
On July 3, 1876, a St. Louis-based gang of counterfeiters planned to steal Abraham Lincoln's body and hold it for $200,000 ransom and the release of one of their partners, who was in prison for engraving counterfeit plates.

That scheme was never carried out, thanks to a prostitute who tipped off authorities after one of the ringleaders paid her a visit and began bragging about it.  Another botched attempt was made a few months later.
