    Great Article franklin!

    I'd love to see those pics you posted awhile back of some of the things you have found over the years... if you feel comfortable posting those again. I missed them the last time you posted and the attachments were invalid when I tried to open them.

    Refresh my memory. I have posted so much over the years, I can not remember to which attachments you are talking about?

    It was on the Beale sub forum... you had deleted the post/pics but someone used the quote with attachments. The reply sounded like different coins and caches possibly. It looked like maybe 5 attachments you had made. Not too terribly long ago.

    I'll have to go through them again. I don't remember the thread.

    Sorry, Kace. I have no way of knowing what those attachments were. Maybe a moderator could help you out and they can recover those attachments?

    Kace, I am going to attempt to post some of the 18 Confederate States of America Treasury that my partner and I found in 2008. I believe that is what the attachments were that are missing.Click image for larger version.

    There is a lot more but I can not post all yet.

    All of these coins except two were sold with a Certificate of Authenticity. I even promised the purchasers that when the large depositories were recovered and sold that they would each receive one million dollars upon the sale of the coins. The 20 francs gold was given to my partner as well as the 1862 Indian Head Penny. He still has both. The 1853 Mexican Silver was given to my brother in law in W.Va. He still has it. The British Farthing I have lost or miss-placed, I may find it again?

    That was one of the Mexican Silver Dollar Kegs we found at the bottom of a 23 foot deep well under a paved church parking lot. We found hundreds of pounds of band wire from boxes and kegs that had been burned in the well. The coins had been removed and buried, most likely hauled off in coffins to a burial in the cemetery.

    Yes they did but I do not believe they burned the CSA Records. I believe they are buried in a 38 ft. by 38 ft. vault in Danville.

    The pieces of the keg where in the very bottom of the well so most likely some water stayed down there to keep all of it from burning? We also found three of the large brown jugs that contained at one time, Secretary of the Treasury George Alfred Trenholm's Peach Brandy. Two of them broke and one was in-tact about a 2 gallon jug.
