    I could go with the person dies and before that, they killed off everyone that helped them hide it.

    #6 is the legend they spin about the Arc... or what happened in Indiana Jones really did happen so that's why its hidden so well so deep on OI.
    #7 is totally Egyptian and I don't think anyone has a crackpot theory about Khufu going to OI to bury stuff he didn't want to be buried with.

    I think I can get on the show if I develop some Crazy Egyptian tie in.... gonna get busy !

    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.

He forgot he had done it and months later when he remembered he had done this (while looking for the stash) he could not remember where abouts in the garden he buried it.

    As far as I know he is still looking.....
    Did a similar thing without Alcohol involved. Buried a clad quarter at 12" to test my detector left it in the yard thinking I would dig it up later. Fast forward 6 months and a home reno project, remove trees, etc... and still haven't found it. It's only a quarter but its also 15' from my house you would think I could locate it... Problem is I counted 12 steps from a tree and then removed the tree and build an addition where the tree was.

    Your detector couldn't pick it up at that depth,either now or when you buried it ? If so I suppose it would be hard to find a quarter buried at 12 inches

    When the Vaquero is super tuned it would hit the quarter at 12" and did but that's pushing it. (In my experience)
    When it warms up I'll find it...maybe

    12 inches is a bit rough for many detectors. Add to the fact that during the construction of the addition it's possible more soil accumulated where the quarter was. I hate to admit this, but I lost a silver dime at 5 inches down for awhile. My Safari would not detect it and there's nothing wrong with the Safari either as I had it checked. The conclusion I came to was possibly due to soil mineralization in conjunction with electrical interference subtracting from my depth ability. I eventually found it by stripping away a few inches of soil on top for several square feet around and then it detected it. My goal was only to recover the dime at that point. A clad quarter is not as big of a loss.

    1. The person/s who buried the treasure died
    2. The person/s who buried the treasure were imprisoned/stopped from returning to where they buried the treasure
    3. The location of the treasure was lost
    4. The treasure was actually lost/dropped/building collapsed/burnt/left over from battle etc and no one new there was treasure there
    5. What was buried was not that valuable at the time and has become very valuable later. The original buryier did not bother to recover it
    6. The treasure was never meant to be recovered for some reason maybe spite/fear/religious belief etc
    7. The treasure was buried with someone for their afterlife (ie the pyramids)

    Of the above reasons (feel free to add more to the list) i




    #1 thru #7 very possible. Number 8 however, it’s the best explanation,
    #8.... Alzheimer

    (after many years of frustration and trying to give said directions to “who are you”?, and “why do you look so familiar” ok, go about 30...no, 300...but not sure, ...I got to pee,... and who are you again? Oh, that.....well, I just like that story....)
