The largest treasure hoard ever found was discovered by accident by an anonymous couple in California. While walking their dog, they saw a piece of metal sticking out of the ground.
After some scraping with a stick, they unearthed this metal can
containing 170 gold pieces. More digging and seven cans
later, their trove was worth ten million dollars.
Where did it come from?
Was it stolen loot from a stagecoach or bank?
Was it buried by a rich but eccentric miser?
Can they keep it all? Can they keep ANY of it?
And why did they wait a year to report it?
