    German ww2 gold bars found/70"s or 80"s-high society magazine/photosThe lake is

    First this post is about found treasure peroid,not politics. I retrieved these pages from a old high society magazine,but I forget the year,and its not in the article. The lake is called Toblitz and it had a secret nazi base on its shores,and is in Austria. My father who was a sargent with the 3rd army,during ww2,had told me stories about this lake ,he got from interrogateing german pow"s,and always wanted to go their, but never did. You might say,while i am on the subject,and thinking of dear old DAD, that he to was a bit of a treasure hunter, and told me he went into every bank,post office,help blow open found safes,and nazi offices looking for loot,and he found some to. somewhat like the movie kelly"s Gold, but he really loved the series combat,and got big laughes out of Hogens Hero"s. The diver holding the box of bars is Zauner,and he found other relics also,but you just cant beat good old gold.

    Just because it did not work does not mean it was not a good plan!

    I'm sure it's true, But I think the Picture of him holding the Gold Bars dosn't look right.

    How much Weight is he Holding up by the Tips of his Fingers?

    Hey Mistress Cyn,COOL POST, its always nice to read 1 of your posts,as a matter of fact they are a education bar none. A Madison Ave. Exec.,nice going,,and i am sure they miss you in NY. By the way,how did those treasure leads I sent you pan out. Were you able to do any searches? Oh and you have one of the most unusual photos I have ever seen,very intrigueing and mysterious.
    And their is no tongue in my cheek, and never judge a book by its cover.

    Hey guys, if we could just see the rest of the bottom of the picture we would see that the bottom of the box is partially under water in which he is kneeling on his right knee, supporting the box on his left. The box, including some of the bars look distorted because of the water's refraction. Ever shoot fish with a bow and arrow...always aim lower than what you see. In this case the straight edge of the box is visually bent under the water. I don't think anyone is trying to fool anyone.

    a Knee would explain it.

    The Picture does look like it's Pieced together tho.

    As I said in the first Place, i'm sure the story is true.
    I just think the Picture looks Faked, for Dramatic Effect,
    as he still appears he has no grip on that Case of Gold.

    NAAAAAAH! I agree with BOBINSD. He's on one knee. They just cut out the bottom for the valuable page real estate. Between the gold and girl, I don't think anybody reading the article would have looked any further down than the box anyway!

    ....and besides, it was in a "High Society Magazine" Soft porn at it's best! They specialize in shots of boxes!

    Re: German ww2 gold bars found/70"s or 80"s-high society magazine/photosThe lake is

    hi,
    I grew up 20 km from Toplitzsee (lake Toplitz) and in 1968 was asked by a tourist if I could look for his camera he had lost from the tourist boat. As a 17 year old I free-dived to about 15 metres but because there was a lot of silt on the bottom I didn't find anything. (after all, that lake is 120 metres deep). got told by a Gendarm (cop) to scoot and don't try that stunt again. not long after I happened to work in the local Buergermeister's (mayor's) loungeroom and saw a kind of certificate on the wall. I was only able to read UNTERNEHMEN TOPLITZSEE (Operation Lake Toplitz) before the mayor told me not to be nosey and scoot. As I stated in another forum I always wondered if the diving ban in this lake has more to do with keeping things the way they are rather than diving safety and treasure. btw. the picture above with the gold bars is not lake toplitz at all and the counterfeit british pound bills originally in the box were turned into gold by the photographer's fairly poor skills. cheers hh
