Good luck to them if they had. In country of crippling poverty I really hope they have made an amazing discovery.

The film does seem quite impressive at first. But I hate to be a party pooper but there seems to be issues that raises a red flag for me.

1. My eyes are crap these days but I found it strange that they did not show a close up of the coin or bar and all we have somewhat blurry image.

2. What appears to be silver vases seem remarkable free of tarnish considering the silver has been in wet clay for 70 plus years.

Water generally does not damage sterling silver. *But* water does cause silver to oxidize (darken) more quickly, and what type of water and the chemicals in it has an impact on how much it will cause your silver change color.

3. I can understand why the voices masked to protect tracing any identity because most likely they will pocket the alleged treasure instead of sharing with the government. But why show anything at all better to keep quiet.

4. There is a long history of fake gold fake treasure and fake maps in the Philippines as nearly as many con artist as treasure hunters if not more.

That said if my suspicions are incorrect I wish them well.

Hola Crow your black birdy suspicions are justified amigo.

It appears the poster of this you tube clip has done several clips few alleged finds. He also did a clip of blue plastic handled briefcase clearly made after ww2. full of alleged gold bars dug out of ground. As he pulls it up with one hand the two there is no way with weight of the alleged bars inside that case after being alleged to have been in the ground for 70 year in wet soil would of fell apart.

Yashashree clarice has posted several versions online.

Reminds me of the dug out builders on Youtube. Anyone see those video's where they supposedly use only sticks and their hands to dig out elaborate pools and houses in the ground? They were busted using shovels and backhoes for the majority of the digging, edited out to make it look like it was just their hands and sticks doing the digging.

Now look back at the silver pot from the clip below.

It well might be antique pot but there is is no way the above pot was in the ground for 70 odd years.

Hola GoDeep amigo

Thanks for link. Regardless of it being fake it still looks good what they make but somewhat of a disease ridden mosquito trap. Cannot get over depth of volcanic ash? But I get your point filming can always be manipulated.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think this is a legit treasure recovery in the Philippines?

As fake as those "diamonds" in the video.

How do we know this? Because each and every one of the fake diamonds in the video are several times as large as the largest cut clear diamond in the world, the Culinan 1 (bottom left) which was found in South Africa in 1905 and weighs 530 carats!

Unfortunately 99% of supposed recoveries posted or YouTubed in the Philippines are done by scammers wishing to take advantage of people. The actual recoveries are virtually never posted due to the inherent dangers of the TH becoming known and thus a target of all sorts of bad things.

also, they post fakes in hopes of finding people overseas to purchase items at a “reduced rate“ if they do it quickly, and without due diligence. Too many people fall for these scams.

Spot on! Have you also noticed that almost all of the video's are dark, blurry, shaky and shot in this sweeping action format, never leaving the object in the frame too long? Like the authorities are about to converge on them so they can't show you the goods too long...

I do believe allot of the Videos are fake, But seriously , I don't think the government
over there should be shown any real treasure dug.
unless you have permits and witnesses with clout,
my guess you'll disappear right before the treasure

This right here. Disappear is spot on.
