    Actually, we moved one state away from where I found this, my friend Mike (also a member of TNet) has been calling/emailing we're currently researching some prohibition era (moonshine) sites. Mike's the one I gave a handful of SLQ's and mixed silver along with the '32 10 dollar gold piece....he sold it a couple years ago. The old moonshiners never took their money to the banks, some even kept it buried close to their stills or landmarks near their water source. Even though they dressed in rags and lived in shacks, they had cash and lots of it, many were shot, wrecked, or drank their own poison, which fried their brain, and simply forgot where they hid their money.

    I've been told many things about my find, an old hardware store owner, a feedstore/livestock dealer, moonshiners horde, illegal gambling stash? Hopefully, all this wintertime research will pay off this spring....I've got nothing but time Tesoro did contact me and wanted rights to reprint my story in their annual paper (sent me some coupons too) (the pm is still in my inbox) - I gave permisson, but never checked back on it or followed up. It was just pure luck IMO, but it does go to show there's still buried treasures out there - just waiting to be stumbled upon. My personal opinion, it was an illegal gambling and moonshine operation...the owner of the home was shot and took the secret with him then the house set on fire to cover up evidence....that's just my guess?

    Hello Tim. There were many stills in the swamps here in South Florida during prohibition. Al Capone had operations set up in this area and it may be worth a search but they cant be buried very deep here in a flooded area I would think.

    Its a good idea to be close to aging parents. Mine both died this year within a 5 month period and I regret that I was not close enough to help. Take care.

    WOW Great story and well written. I would wonder why you have not gone back to search for the remaining coins, especially if you have moved back from Florida. But I am sure you have a good reason. HH Gayle

    For those of us who don't know the poster of that story, what kind of "yellow discs that wars are fought over" were they? I am assuming gold coins of some sort. I suppose it's possible to delete all of the photos but why not take more photos? Were all of the gold coins sold? Why all the secrecy now after so many years have passed since the initial find. No disrespect intended. Great story, inspirational anyway.

    Because this story was nothing more than an attempt to write the great American novel.

    I think it should have included a wayward band of outlaws, a snake pit, a life or death struggle and then a shootout at the OK Corral. LOL
