However you have the right to 30% of the valuation of the tresure(less then 25% after taxes)...so you remain mostly with the joy of admiring your find in a museum. The truth is it has been 18 months since the discovery and i havent seen a penny so far...that`s Romania. You have to fight hard for your rights.
    Well hopefully they will give you your share of the find. Especially now since it has a world wide audience to admire it.

    That is absolutely unfair. I sure hope he "dropped" a few of those coins on the way back to the truck. Yeah more I think about it.....that ticks me off. I'm callin' Romania.

    What's their number? They are going to give that man his 30%.

    They do not want a worked up redneck from Texas on the phone.

    Amazing! Congrats my friend. It's a real bummer that you just put in all of that hard work to make these amazing discoveries and now you have to fight like crazy to just get a small cut that gets taxed like crazy. Id like to say I'm surprised but im not at all. If you find another one maybe you should keep it and tell the govt they already got their share with the first two just kidding I would never condone anything illegal

    sssooooo next time in in Romania im bring my gear and im going to give you a call. they want to keep 70% then tax you on the remaining 30%? thats crazy dont give them anything. dont even post a picture of your face. im half Romanian. i guess its better than when the communists were in charge. my mother lived there whey the overthrew (killed) the royal family. ive gotten to go to Eforia, Constanta, Bucharest, and Bran Castle. Romania is awesome. when i first went there as a kid the streets in the small town of Eforia were not even paved. they have come a long way in the last 20 years.

    Great find! Absolutely incredible.

    The rule about turning over the treasure should be that you give them the treasure only after it has been appriased and you've received your check.

    It could even be turned over to a 3rd party in the meantime so you don't cut and run.

    Yeah, unlike Florida where finds are confiscated, locked up in the State's Treasury, then disappear!

    Can you get a lawyer or something? A small amount of those coins will pay for one.. I'd fight tooth and nail to get a share of those coins !! Man, I don't think I'd even hunt if they did that to me... Tell them to get a detector and find their own 4,000 year old coins !! We feel for you sorry your not getting what you deserve so far.... Amazing find, congratulations on banner... Sometimes the thrill of the hunt is valuable enough.

    Keep @ it and HH !!
