    I saw some from 1966 and '67 before.

    The early ones, of that era (late 1960s to early 1970s) tended to be more about treasure legend type stuff, than about coin/relic hunting. The older magazines were always chalked full of "lost mine" and "stolen stagecoach " loot type stories. And only a token article here and there about coin and relic hunting.

    Yea that's a great way to have fun. You definitely win.

    I bought a group of old west magazines at a shop in Glendale Kentucky a while back, about 50 magazines. From the early 60s through early 70's for about $1.75 each if I recall correctly. We spend some time at cabin in the hills, no tv. Winter reading. Some great columns from old timers who were young lads when the events occurred.

    Working on our books we found one online source from 1898. Newspaper articles from the 1860s. We also discovered magazine articles that were word for word reproductions of old newspaper articles. Gare was that you yesterday I was on the phone with?

    Most know the magazines, but the material goes back much further.

    The earliest I have I can think of is Vol 1 #1 of "Adventure Treasure" from 1960:

    I grabbed this pic off in Internet as I don't have access to the magazine right now.

    Adventure Treasure was a brief sporadically-published mag that was the precursor to the eventual "Treasure" magazine. I have all issues of both. Offhand, I can't think of an earlier magazine dedicated to treasure hunting, although there were a lot of magazines that would run treasure stories on a pretty regular basis. Like the various Western mags (Old West, True West, etc), Desert magazine, Calico Print, Argosy, etc.

    And as such, would be beyond reproach. Right ? If you/they found a newspaper article from 1860, then by definition, it's true. Right ?

    So too will the info contained @ supermarket tabloid checkouts, and the various TV show treasure shows equally be considered the "benchmark true", @ 150 yrs. from now. Right ?

    They must be true, I am making money off them. Your list of examples are currently doing quite well at this time.

    This is what I consider the golden age of publications.
