    The key to recovering the money is to find a bronze coin engraved with Otto Hillig's initials and rumored to be buried somewhere in the Catskill Mountains,

    I live on Long Island, and I spent over 20 years going up on weekends to Callicoon NY.
    85-2002.

    Derrick & Judy who ran the Dairy Cream, on RT-17B Under the RT-97 overpass.
    That's where you made the turn to head up to Villa Roma.

    Big Al Kaufman, owned nearly half the town, with the Freada Family owning the other half.

    Would canoe from Callicoon down to Skinners Falls at least once a month.

    One night after drinking way to much, coming back from Long Eddy, got pulled over on RT-97 2am one morning by Louie Alvarez.
    Who kindly drove me home.

    Anyway, I never heard about this tale of Nazi Gold, and I heard more than my fair share.


    I'm interested, anybody have some more detail?

    thanks, tim

    I just heard about this possible treasure hunt and I'm game. If anyone wants to team up send me an email message and we can talk. Like I said I just came across this treasure hunt, so I don't have any information to add yet but I will start my studying now.

    I really do not believe the story at all. But, go for it. Liberty is small town and should be search for jewel and single coins and for other buried treasures. Maybe if the story is true, the treasure is paper money. Good hunting and good luck.

    THE CLUES TO HILLIG'S TREASURE

    The arch if the roots is by your boots.

    She is as beautiful as her closest sister, who once left Skeetersburg.

    William Ayers mourned Liberty's first death.

    The fish won't bite at the Western part but begin the hunt, its OK to start.

    'Foul wrinkled witch, what makes thou in my sight?'

    Blue Mountain Cemetery looks over Otto's treasure.

    Broadhead Points to.

    Dr. Blake Wales knew it as two log houses.

    Lucky me, I'm in the Queen's back yard. If you can't find me, you haven't looked hard.

    The Lennon Building holds a clue.

    Grady's horse kicked the spot.

    The coin is in the open.

    Liberty Public Service was there in my time.

    From the inside of Manion's Store the Mongaup will roar.

    Mr. Manion's home plate.

    Ugly Acer rubrum on the rade, then 30 paces and you will have in made. Turn to the right if going at, turn to the left if walking back.

    The municipal corner is basically nutty.

    What once was Hortonville, now is not.

    You are very close at number one, the plague is a spot which you should plot, go in and eat, and count the feet, from there to here, let's have a beer.

    The lens of my camera has revealed the spot.

    Now in its place is a restaurant which has food that is fine. Descramble the words on the bar and you will be one step closer to being the star.

    As you pass by behold and see in a restaurant across from the old 'Big G.' My works live on and hold a clue to find the coin now known to you. Enjoy the food and have a ball, examine all the pictures on the wall.

    O Tsuga Canadensis, protect me!

    This is it, you have all the clues. If you do find me call the news. Fred will know what to do, he the treasure to give to you.

    I think now after looking into this for a few days I need to validate some historical facts. Why Nazi spyís wanted to blow up the bridge? Why these spyís had a large amount of cash?

    Iíve emailed a Cornell University professor who area of specialty is ww2 era Germany and politics.

    Nothing back from the professor yet, didnít think Iíd get timely response.
    According to things Iíve read it wasnít unheard of for Nazi spyís to be here and for the capture of said spyís to be kept hush hush.
    There once was a railroad going though liberty that has been abandoned now.
    I believe that the guns that would have been shipped from upstate New York may have been from the Ithaca Gun Company. Now to find out if they would have been shipped train to a port and which port.
    If anyone knows of any other upstate New York gun makers during this time please say something.
