It wasn’t there

On June 18, 1907, according to the London Times the next day, the Ascot Cup vanished. It was 13 inches high and 6 inches in diameter, made of 20-carat gold and weighing 68 ounces. The cup was on a table on the lawn at Ascot, guarded by a policeman and a representative of the makers.
