    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Actually, it has been reburied; this time in the basement of a two story building in Ft. Knox, Kentucky.

    I'd say the treasure of KVM's LUE treasure map.
    And no I didn't find it!

    Out of curiosity, if something in the US is found that belonged to a famous historical figure such as Abraham Lincoln or George Washington, or from a significant event can the Government confiscate it if deemed a National Treasure? If they can, would you get compensated like over in England?

    Hello -donn- & Welcome to TreasureNet

    Unfortunately I can't think of a single treasure that would fit that Criteria
    there have been stories of Small treasures Being located over the years
    like a chest of coins on an Island in the susquehanna river ; Celeron de Bienville's Lead plates; gold bars that supposedly were part of a Treasure.;
    chest of Gold Coins buried at a French Fort in N.W. Pa, supposedly dug after a dream,
    & Braddock's Payroll Cache (all in PA)
    I don't believe there were any That an actual Name of both a Finder
    & cacher can be confirmed & put to. with the exception of maybe one of the lead plates

    at least non that have been reported that I'm aware of at this time,

    & you would need 2 Confirmed to say one was the Greatest

    They found disme's the first dime ever. Think it was made in Jeffersons basement and they used a silver cook ware set that Washington owned. That's a pretty big find

    IMOP....."Most" treasure legends in the US are just that...."legends." If it sounds to good to be true it likely is and if there's no documentation to support it then it probably never existed in the first place, or it was only a fraction of what it has been built up to be down through the years. Most of it is just wise tales and local lore, Bigfoot dressed in silver and gold.
