I think I just identified something I have had for a long time!

chungkey is a game and this is a game piece they used. Right?! Interesting. I found it in the sw Colorado mountains. A game local to Tennessee, Georgia Illinois and Missouri. Chahokia regions. I just am more sure than ever that I am near an old trading post? The saga continues. What do I do with it though? Is it legal to keep? Can I sell it? Gift it? Do I have to turn it over?

Yes you can keep it and unless you were digging in illegal area you can sell it. I would keep it.

They can be found in the western states too. It was a popular game long after the Mississippian period. It is thought the game originated in the Cahokia region east of St Louis.

I have permission to be on my friends private land for collecting and selling and treasure hunting. Interesting it ended up here. I’ve been thinking there was an old Indian trading post near this game piece. That would explain how it got there. I have found grinding stones and other things around that area. I’m interested in this idea because I seen a door in the area also. An arched wooden door leading into the mountain. I’m thinking Spanish were there as well. I believe there is a Native American memorial area out there. There are stone bird shaped effigies in a concentrated area. These were used to show a specific clan and used as a tribute or memorial but not ceremonial. There is also an effigy mound with an animal shape. I believe it is the shape of a slide rock bolter. There is a massive Boulder landslide right across from the mound. Maybe some natives got caught in a landslide or maybe it was a warning or maybe it means the treasure is at a 45 degree angle or higher. Lots of triangle shaped stones out there also. I think it may mean a 45 degree angle on a triangle which will always be proportioned out to the same on the other two sides. I’m just trying to figure out what the other angle is. I guessed 700 ft. It doesn’t make much sense to go with that number except I think it’s linked 40 miles away to la caverna del oro. The door coming from the entrance was about 700 ft from the entrance. It’s actually been said that was the exit. Anyways don’t get me going or you will be here all night listening to what may be or not be true. If I find it I was right.
