Original photo of the chest from a book
Do any of the old timers remember the thread about finding the photograph of the original chest in a book? I'm trying to find that thread and/or photos.

Thanks astree. That is. I wanted those seeking proof of the chest being recovered or not to see it. Forrest first denied it being the same to me and then later said it probably was.

So this proves that they are 2 TC one that ff bought and one he made.

It looks generally similar to me, but not close to the same as the chest pictured in the book.

Well, the text refers to plates, mirror cas s, and casket lids so not sure that image is even on a chest.

An interesting thing about that book: it mentions the siege was made into a 14th century casket, or box. Could THAT be the tc?

And how does the scene on the tc make it the “perfect” chest to secret his treasure? Could it be an “allegory” for “the thrill of THAT chase,” as FF mentions on his dustcover?

RE: Original photo of the chest from a book
Also interesting: Google "siege of the castle of love" (images)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casket_with...ers_71264)

To me, this is not "THE CHEST" but more likely the inspiration for the chest by whoever made the bronze box. This would explain the slightly less definition / clarity on the chest lid. For example, if a wax mold was made from the original, then it would show less detail when cast into bronze.

I was shocked when I first saw some of these images. In reality, Fenn's chest could have made by anyone or during any time period. To me, the Fenn chest looks like it was LINED AND MODIFIED by a talented craftsman, but it doesn't look like ancient work, but work done in the last 80 years. (the bronze could be any age... for $25,000 that seems like a fair price if you had to actually make one)

Let me be clear. I don't think ff is a fraud or anything negative... more like another example of exaggeration / embellishment by f.

Or its perfect cause it's Roman: ivxlcdm. Does two n's equal an m? Only if you use yr imagination or
en
noun
noun: en; plural noun: ens
a unit of measurement equal to half an em

So if L is en, then two els are m or k(ilo). If L is ten/X, then two els are two x's or two tens. Does this make "all" = "axes" or "atens"? Axes/axis(sawyer or long/lat) or ate tens/eight tens/80 or ate n's?
