Synopsis:
Scrooge takes pills to restore his failing memory, and immediately recalls the location of bag of nuggets he cached in the Yukon fifty years before. When the ducks arrive in the Klondike, they find that Scrooge's claim has been taken over by Glittering Goldie, a former dance hall girl Scrooge knew in the gold rush days--and who still owes Scrooge a thousand dollars, plus interest.

Indexer Notes

Art submitted on September 18, 1952. Comment by Kim Weston: "Originally the story was 32 pages. As published it was only 27. A five page sequence was cut following page 11 of the published story and another half page following published page 15. These pages change the characters' motivations, making Scrooge a somewhat more sympathetic but more ambiguous character and Goldie less so." The cut pages have been added to some of the reprints. Synopsis by Michael Barrier and comment from Kim Weston are both from "Carl Barks and the Art of the Comic Book" (1982).
