    Sounds a little fishy to me.

    Haven't been on TNet long so I'm just reading this. Awesome story! I agree, you should be a writer! Congratulations on your incredible find! I was thinking bank robbery, train robbery? Jesse James? I take it that the coins are newer than that time period since your talking the Prohibition Era. Forget about the non-believer's, who cares what they think. That company wants your story, sell it to them. Nothing wrong with making somemore retirement money off the find. I'll have to stop prospecting and stamping out my own gold coins and buy a metal detector! Lol! Or go out with Old Dog to find some Spanish Cache! He's awesome on the subject! Anyways, Congrats! Enjoy!

    - Call the few friends I told of the find, and tell them I was "joking around", show them a few silver quarters/dollars and advise them that I was just pulling their leg and apologize for getting them all hyped up.

    - Go back to the site and make sure I collect all traces of my presence (cigarette butts, water bottle, tracks, car tracks) and make sure my "hole" was undetectable. Yep, this is when more paranoia set in.

    Sorry but if you were advised to do all this then you were trespassing and actually in reality stole this treasure. That's why it's a hush hush.

    And I have a right to voice my opinion so don't hate me for saying what it looks like.

    It wasn't hush hush because of where it came from. I'm sure if the owner had a problem with it he would have pressed charges. Instead he ended up with a lot of money, money he wouldn't have had in the first place. Probably more money then what his property is worth.

    It's the best story I've read here on Treasurenet. The OP/Author holds it out to be a true story "My True Treasure Tale....", and I, for one, hope it is true. I just like to think that something like that may really be out there, and hence, the possibility that I might find something similar one day.

    Thought it was the real deal until I started thinking about the thick sheets of black plastic that he said were covering the treasure area. The kind of treasure and way it was wrapped says it was buried long, long ago, but plastic wasn't around then. A hole would have been covered with metal or wood.

    The hole was covered with wood. No one knows how long its been there. It could have been buried the day before he got there, possibly dug up and reburied. It may have been tar paper. I'm sure he was in too much of a hurry to sit there and examine it. If it was actually plastic does that make a difference? Plastic was invented over 150 years ago. Older then the coins he found. So I'm not sure what your point is? Just another nay sayer? Jealous maybe? Who knows? Who cares! The guy knows what he found and that's all matters.

    Great story! It really fires me up to never give up looking and trying spots that others may pass up. I really would have liked pictures to back this story up.

    I second that! To me, hunting lost treasure is not work, but a fascinating kind of play that sometimes belongs to the world of make believe, until it finally becomes REAL. It has always appealed to me, even as I recognize, some of those around me, don't fully understand my/ your drive and passion for this kind of hunting. I refuse to allow myself to become frosted, starched or too conservative to believe the 'best is yet to come'. I get mutually excited when another finds his/her buried glory. Oh! What fun. There is a real never-never land, and it seems to be right here. Congratulations, to ALL of you to never giving up on the pot of gold at the end of our rainbows!!!

    Hi. Great story that I hope you're not sick of discussing yet. I'm studying the psychology of cache hiding with direct relevance to a hunt that I'm on now. If you don't mind will you kindly describe the proximity of the grove of pine trees to the burned cabin. How far from cabin? Was the grove within sight of the cabin so any activity would have been observed? Thanks in advance. I'm after something similar, I hope.

    Great story, no matter if true or fiction. In fact if you know history of USA, many Native American Indian tribes were paid their annuity in gold coin, as it was less bulky than paying them in silver. Many of these N.A. did bury their gold coins, for various reasons, and much of it may remain to be found. To me this story sounds much like a N.A. annuity gold coin cache that was secreted back then...and gives me hope.

    In accordance with the treaty between the Choctaw Indian and the United States Government, annuity payments were issued on a regular basis from this building. Boats carrying wooden barrels filled with gold coins would float up the Arkansas River until they reached the landing, then would be carted across the remaining miles to the old agency building.
