Neat, I wonder how many forum members are packing their detectors and buying their plane tickets ?

(just being funny, but it would be interesting if a forum member did go there)

Let me know what you think of it, I have read lots of articles by lots of people on it. Some people think the USA Government secretly recovered much of it. Some think Marcos family got a lot of it, some think it is still hid.

Probably the wrong guy to ask. I generally am a treasure story skeptic. While I believe many tales are very very loosely based on some tiny piece of truth. The odds are very minute these will be proven.

But I love a good story!

Default Japanese treasure hid in Philippines

I have yet to find any thing of value in the Philippines ,I have had a detector with me the last few trips . The best I have found was a few more modern clad coins. With so much history in the islands there has to be a lot of good coins and relics waiting to be discovered there yet. With almost 400 years of Spanish rule , American rule , Japanese occupation , American rule then Philippines indepent rule . I hada thread going on this a couple of years back http://metaldetectingforum.com/showthread.php?t=249416 I also did one on the USA mint that was operated in Manilla Philippines the only American mint out side the states they used a M mint mark , http://metaldetectingforum.com/showthread.php?t=254152

I still have hope of finding something cool over there one of these trips , don't matter if it be a old coin or War relic , there still has to be lots of cool things there waiting to be found once you get through all the trash.

Ha; I guess I better stay out of there. With my luck I would stick my shovel in the ground and break one of those cyanide bottles. Has anyone ever smelled that stuff and lived to tell what it smells like?
