    Info on Treasure Maps

    I see alot of posts about the beale codes,KGC carvings,etc here on Tnet.I am not by any means saying that stuff isnt real but here is a little bit of advice about treasure maps. There has never been a documented case where a treasure map has been authenticated,EVER. Not Once in history. When researching legends,Dont rely on maps or codes,Rely more on the information within the story,such as townships,landmarks,etc...Most chances are that maps are a cipher within a cipher and the only actual way to follow the map or decipher the code would be if you were the man who wrote it. If you found the treasure of legend and documented where it was found, You may actually be able to autheticate a treasure map because you would have a way of deciphering the map to lead to the found treasure,But this far in history there isnt one documented case of an authentic treasure map.Just a friendly heads up.

    I agree 100%. Follow the story, and only then if you're able to find good reason to.

    I can't agree with you on this one. Have you read the classic January 1965 issue of National Geographic?

    Kip Wagner found the treasure right where the map showed the shipwrecks.

    I'm tempted to throw in Burt Webber, Barry Clifford and Mel Fisher - but Kip's example will do, as we only need one.

    Or don't shipwreck charts count?

    Good luck to all,

    When it comes to Civil War gold caches, Swift, Jesse James, et. al. - I'm in complete agreement with you!

    Re: Info on Treasure Maps

    Yes, what i meant was that there isnt a validated case in history where a map has been written for the sole purpose of leading to treasure, that has ever been validated, But then again, Confederate treasure would be property of the United States Government because the confederacy is/was an enemy of the united states. SO.....that being said,Would you want to be the guy who authenticated the first treasure map or the guy with 100 pounds of confederate gold? LoL. Shipping charts were used basically as an atlas for traveling the ocean unless the voyage ended in tragedy,But werent written with the sole purpose of finding treasure,They were written for transporting it via trade routes,etc.

    Lucky13, YOU see the Beale Codes, as a "treasure map"? How so? SO! We "focus" on Lynchburg, Virginia &/or Montvale, Virginia "area" via BEALE PAPERS? Hmmm... INTERESTING! AND! " Information within a story"? How does THAT work?

    Take the swift stories for instance, there are several versions, Some contain rockbridges,others refer to a rock house,Others refer to a flat rock protruding over a creek,others refer to a sheer cliff with a hole in the top called the lighthouse,etc,etc. Landmarks,The information within the story to pinpoint possible locations.

    Information within a story can sometimes be proved, or disproved.

    Do i really have to explain this? Just like the star over bethleham that led the three wisemen to jesus,The prophecie that foretold the birth of the messiah and the way to find him? Ring a bell? No? Information within the story. If you still dont understand,Scroll up,LOL

    Re: Info on Treasure Maps

    For sure, "landmarks" ARE given in the stories about the Swift Mines; how so with the BEALE PAPERS? Lynchburg, VIRGINIA? Montvale, VIRGINIA "area". WHAT "landmarks" are we looking for? GOOSE CREEK? LOL!

    I have deposited in the county of Bedford, about four miles from Buford's(which i assume to mean buford VA due to it bordering bedford not a person named buford but thats just my way of thinking), in an excavation or vault, six feet below the surface of the ground, the following articles, belonging jointly to the parties whose names are given in number three, herewith:
    The first deposit consisted of ten hundred and fourteen pounds of gold, and thirty-eight hundred and twelve pounds of silver, deposited Nov. eighteen nineteen. The second was made Dec. eighteen twenty-one, and consisted of nineteen hundred and seven pounds of gold, and twelve hundred and eighty-eight of silver; also jewels, obtained in St. Louis in exchange for silver to save transportation, and valued at thirteen thousand dollars.
    The above is securely packed in iron pots, with iron covers. The vault is roughly lined with stone, and the vessels rest on solid stone, and are covered with others. Paper number one describes the exact locality of the vault, so that no difficulty will be had in finding it.

    We will just suppose you believe this and would be referring to this information in your treasure hunt,The main locations to look in and what to look for...

    Ok first youd want to use GPS or whatever means you have to pinpoint areas N,E,S,W that would be four miles from the inn.The second thing i would do is use GPR and land survey records for iron content in the soil,The GPR would give you an idea of which locations had the bedrock at only six feet beneath the surface.The second thing is that if this treasure is contained in iron pots this particular area would defiantly have a high iron content compared to the surrounding terrain. Thats just one method of thousands that could be used just by using the information within the story. The best lead in this is that the vault is six feet down on solid rock. It would take a year or so to map the ground with GPR unless the DMME has already done it in the past. But if in fact this story is true you would have a damn good starting point and the edge over other treasure hunters on your search sites once you pinpointed your possible locations. Thats just one armchair method i suppose from the comfort of my living room based on the information within the story. But as any treasure hunter knows,Methods change for a thousand different reasons when you are in the field.


    But this also makes me wonder how many ppl have been swinging a T2 and getting a weak signal on iron because the pots are six feet down,thus giving it way to being trash and deciding not to dig

    Why would you not consider it a map when its believed that one of the three ciphers according to the beale story leads directly to the treasure,though the ciphers were never picked up by the man they were left for.

    HA! I thought YOU meant a LITERAL paper map; Beale Code # 1 allegedly gave "direction" to the Bedford County, VIRGINIA "treasure"; HOWEVER! Coffee?

    MORE! ALL Beale Ciphers were disclosed... in the BEALE PAPERS; it was the KEY (to break the BC # 1 & BC # 3) that was "missing"; BC # 2 was ALREADY broken with the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE being used as the "decoder". "Google" BEALE CIPHERS - WIKI for ciphers & "click" on images to "enlarge"; 1 & 3 are NUMBERS Ciphers! GOOD LUCK...and keep us "posted"! Coffee? 8)
