and yes, i do mean hypothetically...
hopefully to change that one day!

say you locate a cache on private property, not necessarily of the gold/silver kind, but more of a cache of weaponry and such...
this would ideally contain items of historical significance, from US wars

as far as permission, i have been directed by several in the past to offer a small portion of money to explore the property for a day or two, offering as little info as possible, if something interesting is found, what would be the best way to handle that?

setting aside permission and agreements with landowners, is that something to keep quiet about?
or best to document everything very closely and report?

how would one go about liquidating?

the places of interest might include Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
just curious to know what i should do if i ever came across a cache as described above in any of these three states.

i know, ton of questions!
would appreciate any insight, as i plan on finding something like this someday!

Thank you!

personally, I would suggest carefully documenting everything--just in case--BUT keep VERY quiet so that hopefully the just in case doesn't occur.

if it's of historical significance, from US wars, u can guarantee the govt will wind up with it.

thank you BA and Karl

my thoughts are always to keep everything well documented, via journals, pictures, dates, inventory and all.
i do have a love of history, and would hate to not be able to share that with others.  It is the history and the "thrill of the chase", as Fenn would say that drives me, but at the same time as you all know there is a ton of time and money spent on stuff like this, and would hate for there to be no monetary reward at the end.

there is only so much that will fit into a trunk or two in grandpa's attic or basement!
will have to look more into the laws on this i guess, so that someday, just in case i ever made a find like this, it would be done right.

thanks again.

Yes, I agree that the 'hunt' is 80% of the thrill. Then another say 10% leftover is sharing your story with others (like on here for example). The other 10%.. well you pick.

In this situation, say you found an old buried civil war rifle in the dirt. Well, chances are it's so beat up and corroded then it most likely won't have much monitary value because there really are quite a lot of civil war rifles around in much finer shape. If you found a cache of them, then you'd probably just be happy with keeping one as a finders fee, and perhaps sharing the proceeds with the owner or possibly convincing him/her to check into donating the rest to a civial war museum if they wanted that where others could appreciate it.

Good luck in your hunt, and in conclusion as you've probably read in other threads.... Always get permission first!
