    Who are the people here that hunt the legendary lost treasures?

    There are a lot of people that I see like the coin shoots, and the relic hunts. But who are the people here that hunt the legendary lost treasures?

    Everything we find is a legendary lost treasure in its own rights!

    Well since the Peacock Throne is whereabouts unknown I do keep an eye out in case someone buried it in a local park or old fairgrounds.

    You never know.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I take a stab at local legendary treasures at times.

    No luck yet.
    You know it's a good day when you not only have surface finds of Pulltabs, but pull two out of the same hole.

    I do, and I'm not embarrassed to admit it. The lure of legendary treasures is what first got me into metal detecting/treasure hunting when I was 14 in 1969 so I've been seeking and finding treasure of all kinds ever since. In those days, long before the Internet, it was the legendary treasures that got most of us into the hobby because treasure and old western magazines published stories about them in every issue unlike now, when those of us who seek the big treasures have to rely on old books and other forms of offline research to get most of our leads as the Net is severely lacking in that regard. We didn't have or need computerized detectors, pinpointers, and digital cameras (filming our every find) wasting our time. We spent it actually treasure hunting, not trying to make a popular YouTube video. But don't ask me if I've ever found one of those legendary treasures because that's strictly between me and the IRS.

    Prospecting
    I'll admit I've spent a lot of hours hunting down the gold from an old stage robbery. Fortunately, it's not far from home, so I can be out there in 45 minutes. It's a nice break from prospecting.

    Plenty of lost treasure leads to be found, research is important. Of course this topic is of interest to me, yesterday our 19th book was released.

    Here is where the devil is in the details. I assume, that by the "research" you allude to, is to ascertain the validity and truthfulness of the various components of the story. Eg.: Names of actual persons that .... yes did exist, and yes did live there, etc... Right ? Names and dates of battles or bank-robberies, etc.... Right ? Factual-ness of persons who said they saw such & such, and therefore suspect such & such, etc.... Right ?


    And for every-single-one of the treasure legends: YES ! You can fill volumes full of "facts that line up". Eg.: Names, dates, events, probable conspiracy motives, "uncanny squiggles on rocks", fuel capacity of ships, fibers, etc....

    None of the legends ever starts with: "Once upon a time". And so your "research" would be a success. Right ? The treasure legend crowd can announce "true", eh ?

    But this fails to take into account that ALL treasure legends are based on facts. Eg.: Names, dates, events. Around which is spun a treasure story. So let's say that your "research" shows that 99% of the story is "true". Ok, but if the 1% (about the treasure) isn't true, then what good does the 99% true do ?
