Are you saying you're one of the people that doesn't care about the IOU,
and that if Fenn made it very clear he would give the finder $100K for coming forward that you would not call him?

What would be your motivation for looking for a $2 million treasure in the first place, other than money?

It's quite simple. So I can give it to my best friend who never had an opportunity in life. His grandparents had to take him in at two weeks old because his crack-addicted mother poured acid on his leg, and his father was in prison. Despite all the adversity, I still marvel to this day: How does this man wake up happy and optimistic every day and give joy to so many people? I can't think of anyone more deserving, and he would do the right thing. It's a storybook ending that most would not anticipate.

Last year, we went searching together in Wyoming and Montana. Picture an inner-city kid who's never been to the mountains before. We're hiking up to Wraith Falls, and he decides to climb the face of the falls to the top. He took some beautiful video footage from the top, and it's a moment I'll never forget.

That's a good story. I know melting down the treasure and turning it into money will help, but I'd suggest asking for the $100K too, sounds like your friend could use it.

I don't think melting the treasure down was ever a consideration, more about what certain people are thinking and saying.

Thanks Copper. Sometimes it's tough to be a stats guy because you don't want to think about the real odds.

Just think it in the binary mode only. Lol, otherwise it is just sad to think about.
