Does anyone know treasures that could be found if someone solves a riddle , a code or a secret clue of some kind-Similar to Forrest Fenn's treasure poem? I want to do an extensive armchair treasure hunting. I have already Fenn's poem to digest but want atleast a couple of others to work upon. I would be glad if you respond.thanks.

I don't know of any.. If you wanted to hide any treasure would you make up a riddle of clues so some clod could find it????

In fact many years ago there was such a "treasure", the golden horse. I was fortunate enough to be paid by some dedicated clue solvers to search in a specific location for it (although sadly through a few misteps in deduction, the folks who hired me had (at some great expense to themselves) picked the wrong state ). At any rate, the idea was to sell a book of clues, which apparently worked out for the author and the eventual finder. It's a fair question to ask whether such solvable gimmicks are out there now. They would be fun.

Lots of this type of book came out after the success of Kit Williams book "Masquerade" about 30 years ago. With this you could find a Hare made of gold worth several thousand. A similar book also by Kit was "The Bee Book". The trouble is finding the titles. A good bookshop should be able to help.
