    Fenn Photos of Treasure Posted

    These are photos Fenn posted as proof. Proof enough or do people still think it was a hoax?

    Personally, I find it all odd. The picture of it that was supposedly taken “not long after it was found” has a stick in it. If it was real, why wouldn’t you take the stick out? I think they staged the stick to make it look more like it really was found in the wild. And what treasure hunter would find the chest then let Fenn have it back for a photo op? I was on the fence about this being a hoax or not but these pictures actually make me lean more toward it being bogus. I hope I’m wrong.

    I wanted to believe this was real, but after reading this I have major doubts. Strange how quickly and conveniently Mr. Fenn got photos of himself with the treasure. Also the thing that sounds most bogus is where he said it was up to the finder to reveal who he is and where it was found. Even if the finder truly was shy, why does he have control over revealing its location found? I now believe this whole thing was a publicity stunt. There's absolutely zero proof anything was ever dug or retrieved or even buried in the first place (actually it wasn't even buried. Mr. Fenn said he "left it on the ground.") There's an awful lot of dirt and mud along the rim, under the part the lid would have covered, for that part being so high off the ground if it was just left ON the ground.

    What about these photo's do you feel lend proof to a treasure hunter finding the treasure ? We have the exact same guy posting (some of) the exact same items he did 10 years ago? For me, the only additional evidence they provide (and that's assuming they are recent), is that Fenn still had access to the treasure and some of the items do look more weathered (easy to achieve). They don't provide any evidence to connect the treasure with an anonymous finder, so we are still in the exact same spot we were a week ago.

    Edit, re-read your second post. I see you have your doubts too. Examine the contents too, there are additional and missing items between when it was "hidden" and when it was "found".

    Actually, I thought Fenn's treasure was real. Not anymore. As was mentioned already, where did the stick come from? The box was closed/sealed, right? The contents do look weathered but so what? Weathering can be faked. And besides, even if the weathering is real nothing would have stopped Fenn from leaving the treasure outside in a place that was inaccessible to the public for 10 years.


    The pictures prove absolutely nothing. The finder conveniently requesting anonymity not only set off my crap detector, it bent the needle and caused it to burst into flames. I vote BS.

    Look at this picture he claims the finder sent him just after finding it, on the right side you can almost see to the bottom of the chest. Now compare it to the original photo he posted when he allegedly hid it. Were are approximately 6 carded/graded coins he has in the upper left of the original photo? Where is that huge tube sitting on the table with what looks like a rolled up paper in it and the white topped bottle in the original photo? Compare the big 6" plus diameter gold discs, not in the original photo's? Look at the what looks like gold wire loop holding like jewels or icons on it, look how smooth and clean the arc of it is and how it's kinked and rough in the other. How about the watch case like items in the original? It's clear in critical review that the "found" pictures don't match all the items in the originals. Sure, it doesn't mean it wasn't found, but it does take away credibility.

    Picture Fenn claims the anonymous guy sent him when he found it:

    Frankly, I never did care about the whole thing, would never look for it even if I thought it was than a mile from my house, and am not believing or caring much about the whole thing. Call me negative. You know the whole thing is taxable to the IRS this year, right?

    I understand not caring much but if you really thought you knew where it was and that it was less than a mile from your house, you wouldn’t even go swing a detector once or twice to check?

    Seems kinda weird that the finder wants to remain annonomous but also meets up with and confides in Fenn.....

    I guess with the end of all this there's now a whole bunch of people in this world, who now know who in the hell Forest Fenn is. A brilliant publicity stunt I have to say.

    Does not pass the smell test with me.
    But it's one great treasure box full of goodies that's for sure.

    I have a feeling Forrest himself recovered it just to end the search.

    The real money will be in a reality show, imagine that a reality show where they actually find something!!!

    s1 E1 stories from other searchers and how and why they came to their conclusion,
    friday night at 8:00 pm, but the sunday before you could order ''The Binding'' and chapter one which includes
    the show with some in depth thinking on the conclusion.

    S1 E2 more searchers more stories, stories of people that had to be rescued, and stories of people that
    lost their live's may god rest their sole's

    Maybe Forrest just finally got tired of the whole deal and went out to his backyard and brought it inside for a few pics, said it was found, haha! I thought it was a real thing, and if I had found it I wouldn't want my identity revealed either. Too many people obsessed with that hunt. I might think twice about revealing where I found it too, cause some fool might pop up and try to sue me for using their 'blog' or whatever to locate it, and since they did all the work they should be entitled to at the very least a share.
    Just like Texas in 1880.
