Yeah thats my guess. My only interest in this story was in the history of the Washington dollars and a rumor I heard years ago about a chest of government documents that legend says was also in the wagons but the last could never be proven.

 Smiley#8 is total untrue.  I live in Connecticut and I know what I am writing about.  It all started with a letter for a lady to a Hartford newspaper back in 1951.  William son in law who was living in the tavern when I interview him told me that the family never heard of the story until they read the letter in the newspaper.  France had their own troops to support and never had that much gold or money. I am willing to pay $1,000.00 not for any of the five coins that supposed to be find, just a picture of just one coin.  No boys or anybody else found any coins because the story is total untrue.  As stated above, I am seeking stories about buried treasures that people gave up looking for in Connecticut including ghost towns.  Sent pictures and stories to:  farmboy@att.net.  There are people who believe this story and I wish them the very best of luck Smiley  All of us enjoy seeing pictures of all these coins.  If Seldom believe this story, why to this very day, he refused to come to Connecticut to search for it? Smiley

Why to this very day, you refused to come to the great state of Connecticut wasting you time for this treasure, that is not?  Stop by, I treat you to a meal and hot coffee.  Best of luck wasting your time and money. Smiley

 Smiley My good friends of Connecticut..  This story is untrue.  Not one single coin was found.  The author lie about 5 coins being found.  NONE    Undecided

You got it AU. I got more projects within 500 miles of my home base then I can complete in 5 life times. Why would I step so far away from my stomping grounds to make this nut case happy?

The main reason I am here like you homes BA GD and others is to help folks out. But every so often we get a nut who wants to start with the name calling the combative responses when they don't like what they are told, so be it. Old Sam is just a armchair troll who only wants to start trouble he want last long hell he has already been muted 2 times.LOL
