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.

Incredible story. I was on the edge of my seat reading it. I hope everything worked itself out in the end for you!

Use your imagination.... There are several possible reasons why the pics were not posted...or maybe? You are a government employee?

I understand all that you did afterwards. Getting the landowner to agree, allowed you to legally own your share, after the fact. Removing any evidence of any earlier time stamp (pics) was also good in they came after you. Every time you look at the Vette, you remember the whole thing. Like I said I understand totally how you reacted afterwards. I wouldn't go back either. Take care and I hope your still around to read this. Great read.

I know this is an old thread, but I appreciate that the OP shared it. It gives one insight and the ability to find treasure vicariously!
No proof is needed to appease ANYONE!

Great finds. This one you will never forget. I hope that you did not sell these coins to coin dealers but through coins auctions. Sent me a private message and I will tell you which one to use. Thanks for sharing.
