Zora Neale Hurston

The title "The Gilded Six Bits" refers to the two coins that a seemingly rich man, Otis D. Slemmons, wears on his watch chain and stick pin. The two coins are together worth only 75 cents, but Slemmons has had them gilded—plated with gold—so that they appear to be solid gold worth 15 dollars.
