UPDATE:  OAK ISLAND
 
GOLD CACHE
 
REGARDING THE EAST GRANBY TREASURE
Submitted by DANNY COOK      dlovejoycook@aol.com
 
The article GOLD CACHE is wrong.   FLOYD:  "I hope you print my story, because many of your readers made comments and are wasting their time and money looking for it."
 
Here we go again.  I am 64 years old and have lived in Connecticut for most of my life.  I became a coin collector in 1964.  After seeing many ads for metal detectors in COIN WORLD, I bought a Whites detector and that got it all started.  Since that time, including the latest LOST TREASURE magazine, I had read the story of 13 wagon loads of gold coin loaned from France that got robbed at Bates Tavern.  Unlike many authors, I did a lot of research, including interviewing William Bates, who was an old man.  He, like many people, is a story teller.  He told me the story was true and that the boxes were buried near a stream, because the digging was easy.
Years later I spoke to his son-in-law who lives in the tavern, with his wife.  He had to be in his sixties.  I asked him if William really believed the story.  He told me that the Bates had never heard of the story until they read the letters from a woman to the Hartford Cournat newspaper in 1951.
Remember:  Captain Lemuel Bates died at 91 years of age.  I hope to live that long.  He lived in the tavern until he died.  That means he would tell his children, who would tell their children the story.  Most people believe that stories in treasure magazines are false.  The coins were never found, and never will be, because the story is false.  The treasure story writer for LOST TREASURE magazine states that Richard H. Phelps wrote a book claiming that Henry Wooster, a Tori, was involved and wrote a letter to his mother stating that he had helped rob the wagons with the coins.  Wrong !  Phelps, who lived in East Granby, never mentioned that story.  He wrote that Henry had robbed a house, with his friends, and went to England and came back after the war.  The article in the magazine also states " in 1951 a Hartford woman wrote a series of articles about the heist."  If the story was true,then it would have been in the local papers at the time.  I also asked a woman who lived in East Granby all of her life, why she didn't write about the treasure in her East Granby history book.  She said the story was false.  If you find the coins, just send me a picture.  Every time the story is printed, many new people show up at Bates Tavern looking for the treasure.  You would think that someone would have found the coins since 1951---if the story was true.  I'd be grateful if anyone has any true stories of treasure in Connecticut.  Best of luck to you all.
 
ROMANIAN METAL DETECTING TRIP IS PLANNED !!
 
Hello !
 
A few months ago we were "trying" to get a trip to Hungary planned, but their country starting having problems with "civil unrest". riots, danger, etc, etc.  It just would not be smart to go there at this time---maybe in the future ?
 
BUT:  an even better opportunity presented itself !  We contacted the Romanian government offices and they forwarded our request to their Tourism Board and they then had several offices contact us.  THEY want us in Romania and it is SAFE.
 
The history of Romania is fantastic and metal detecting there is almost unknown !  We can't help but be successful.  The guides will be myself ( Floyd Mann ), Karl Backus ( International Treasure Hunter ), and a "local" Romanian.  We are currently working on "contracts" with local farmers to use their properties to hunt on.  Other sites will also be negotiated on in the next few months.  The things we will uncover will be astounding !
 
Our first scheduled trip is mid-May ( with OTHER trips to OTHER countries, in later months ).  The 7-day trip is limited to ten TEAM members.  We have FOUR spots remaining !  Your finds there will be yours---after their archaeologists fully record and photograph everything.  The finds will have to be mailed to you back at your home.  We will metal detect 9 AM to 5 PM daily, for 5 days, for Maximum recoveries !  Two days will be planned for additional " sight-seeing".
 
All housing, meals, ground transportation and guide service, while in Romania, is included in your fee of $2,900.00.  A video "souvenir" of your once-in-a-lifetime" experience will be mailed to you after your return home.
 
Your airfare to Romania and back, from your home, will be at your expense.  A Passport is required.  Additional expenses you might expect to incur while in Romania might be:  alcoholic beverages, tips, souvenirs, film, phone calls, entrance fees to attractions, personal items, and other small expenses.  A check-list will be sent to all TEAM members of what to pack, how to prepare your detector for check-in, brochures on Romania, and lots of other info.  Every two weeks you will get an "UPDATE" memo from me, keeping you completely informed of EVERYTHING you need to know.  I will also answer all questions you may have.  I should also be able to assist you in making your flight arrangements and possibly negotiate a discount for you.
 
Future trips to other countries are also planned and participants in this Romania trip will be the FIRST ones to be notified and allowed to sign up.  China, Israel, and Australia are currently being investigated.
 
Karl and I will be sure that you have the time of your life, so you will want to go with us on future trips and we will definitely appreciate your positive feedback and referrals after the trip.
 
Do a GOOGLE search for ROMANIA----to view some of the rich history, culture, and attractions.
