Wow! 10 Million In Gold Coins Found in CA


Recommended Posts

Aloha guys,

When I read this I automatically thought of the convent my sister is at in Encino,Ca. This property once belonged to a silent movie producer that also hated banks. The convent is made up of about 14 acres and it also has an artesian well that feeds a pond in one small section. The pond was cleaned out a couple of years ago by me and a close friend. We hauled up over $1000 in coins ranging from pennies to silver dollars and a whole bunch of silver crosses and pendants which we turned over to the church for disposal. We walked away with a good feeling and a nice chunk of change for our work BUT I never did metal detect the property section that they use for an orchard. Now I wonder what the heck could be buried up there. May have to sit down and have a heart to heart talk with my sister about checking out that area. Can only wish and hope for something like this find tho.

Aloha and stay safe out there,

Stan aka Kaimi

"We do not have any information linking the Saddle Ridge Hoard coins to any thefts at any United States Mint facility," Mint rep Adam Stump tells CNN, and that determination follows a good deal of research, he adds to the San Francisco Chronicle...MORE

Yep, that's it. I had cropped the left and right parts to make it smaller and just kept the middle image.

Wonder what's up with my ability to add images? I'm looking into it, but I know you would have a better idea than me.

Thanks for your time spent on this.

Tony
