A wife (Margarita Fisher) is married to a wealthy coin collector (King Baggot) and finds she's got competition -- not from any female, but from an old piece of silver, supposedly the only one left of the 30 paid out to Judas Iscariot. The husband worships this coin and keeps it locked in a cabinet. Since he tells his wife never to open it, it's only natural that she does so when he's not around. While the cabinet's open, she's disturbed by a former sweetheart, and as can easily be guessed, she loses the coin. This causes all sorts of problems, but in the end, it turns out that the husband knew the coin was a fake. He finds the real thing, however, in the rooms of his wife's ex-sweetheart.
