I myself have found none. However, an old Vietnam buddy of mine found a fence post treasure. TEN, yes TEN gold coins in a can. My brother in Bishop, Ca. saw the actual coins I only saw pictures. The coins were found NE of Bishop.

I probly can't find it but a couple years ago I read a post on TNet about a dude hunting an old Army post and finding many gold coins, mostly $5
pieces. He had done due diligence and knew where the tents of the enlisted men were and knew that the men confined to base put down blankets
to gamble on. The soldiers were paid in gold so it must have been long ago. Can't remember the total but it was a lot more than those mentioned.
It was a western fort, either AZ or California. I'm guessing most of those lost coins were lost when "dissagreements" were going on.
