I recently bought an antique at the fellowship of Winlock church garage sale that involved many families. I found a kinda hidden compartment in the item which had a letter that was handwritten claiming the man had found Gold worth hundreds of millions of dollars. In the letter he was apologizing to his family for things which he didn't explain and said that he was too scared to tell anyone about the treasure because he knew it would be stolen from him or he would be killed for it. The letter was to his nephew saying he was leaving the treasure to him along with the house. He knew he would find the message because the item (which I bought) was one of his favorite things to play with. it said the gold is buried in a specific location on the acreage and there is a map showing where in a loose brick in the fireplace. I am having trouble finding out where the property is as I cannot contact the guy I bought the item from as it was at the sale was done at a church. The letter was signed, your uncle Gary. There is also a a carving of Fluckinger on the bottom of the item. I've figured out his name was most likely Gary Fluckinger. I can't figure out a way to get any more info though. I've searched every way I know how and found nothing. There must be a way to find out more info though and track down what property this guy owned and then contact the nephew and get a percentage of the treasure for telling him it is there. Any ideas? I'm thinking that if anyone can help we can go in on it together and talk to the nephew and share whatever treasure is there. Can anyone advise me or help me on this? I don't have internet. I am using the library to post this and will come look for replies as I can. Thanks for your help.
