One could not count the many treasure stories created over the many years of the creation of this country, train robberies, bank robberies, Spanish related caches left behind, unfathomable incidents of mishap of those who hid up their wealth due to the lack of trust in banks, or other reasons and those who hid it up, passed on unexpectedly or simply could not find it again… on and on the list goes…

Having a general idea as to where the trees were the men search for days and after many days, finally gave up. One of the men returned several times to the area again to try his luck and in 1915 again, but to no avail despite the other mentioned landmarks still existing.
The amount the men buried was 85,000 in Gold Coin, this would be about 8 million in today’s gold value, and the numismatic value could easily be as much as 5 times or more.
