    Vashon Island Treasure Legend

    Found this little tidbit online about the island I live on:
    http://www.coinworld.com/NewCollecto...Treasures4.asp

    On Vashon Island in Puget Sound a logger buried gold in 1877, and it remains unlocated.

    I wouldn't even know where to start to find that LOL.

    Cache Hunting

    Re: Vashon Island Treasure Legend

    Sonja,

    According to Terry's book, the cache belonged to Lars Hanson. It says he lived with his Indian wife on the banks of Judd Creek near Burton.

    According to the book, there is still about $200,000.00 in gold on the Island somewhere.

    I also live in the Northwest down here in the Puyallup area, there's more to the story but that's the jist of it.

    It says that none of the gold has ever been recovered but this print is from some time ago.

    Gary.

    Just checked my cross-reference index, and found the following citations:

    Treasure, 8/1978, p. 24
    Treasure World, 1/1970, p. 51
    Buried Treasure of the United States, p. 221
    Directory of Buried, Sunken Treasures, p. 130
    Treasure Map Atlas, p. 137
    Lost Treasure, 8/1976, p. 52
    Treasure Trails, Summer, 1975, p. 48
    True Treasure, 8/1975, p. 23
    Lost Treasure, 10/1981, p. 78
    Treasure Search, 12/1980, p. 53

    There are more, as I stopped adding to my cross-reference library about 1985.
