One newspaper story from the 1950s was about a man who was hit by a cab in Times Square and killed. However, the official at the morgue found a number of odd belongings on his his person.
These included a letter which dated back to the 1800s, old banknotes, as well as a copper beer token which was also from that era. None of the objects showed any signs of aging! He was also dressed in 18th-century clothes. The legend of Rudolph Fentz lives on as one odd tale of time travel.
