Mary and John were walking their dogs near the forest. One of the dogs became interested in a jar at the roots of a tree, which was almost completely hidden in clay, and for the sake of interest, the spouses removed it to the surface.
But this was just the beginning of the strangeness: the jar turned out to be too heavy for its volume and, moreover, something rang inside. John decided to take the jar home and open it. The spouses were attracted by the unnatural weight of the can, the earth does not weigh as much as paint or other similar materials. John carefully opened the jar above the newspaper, and inside, gold coins of strange mintage gleamed. The man didn’t waste his time.
He rented a metal detector and went to the same tree. John was right: there were four more cans of coins around the roots. The very next day, the couple legalized the right to find and called in specialist appraisers. John and Mary hit the jackpot.
coins of various minting are dated 1847-1894. They are not evaluated by the weight of the precious metal – some copies cost a million dollars. The total value of the treasures found was $10 million. Most likely, bandits buried the money under the tree, since the coins were minted in different places and different banks. By law, John and Mary were able to keep most of the gold for themselves: Having sold part of the treasure, the couple left the old house. Such wealth does not need superfluous glory.
