Lost Treasures That Have Never Been Found

BySiliconIndia

Bangalore: There are many instances of lost treasures remaining unfound yet all over the world. This thought of huge wealth somewhere lying in the world itself is tempting. There is a may be – may not be case in every instance of unfound treasure though. Either they are just myths or have probably been ‘recycled’ long ago. If anyone knows the truth then they haven’t come forward to prove it yet. Still there are many treasures worth searching for. Some of them are as follows, and the facts are likely to prove that they exist. It may astonish you.
1. Oak Island – Money Pit
Oak Island is a 140 acre privately owned island situated in Canada, which is treasure hunt site for more than 200 years. It is said to have a Money Pit in it, protected by a series of traps, though many critics argue about the fact and says there is no treasure and that the pit is a natural phenomenon, likely a sinkhole. Many treasure hunters have ventured to Nova Scotia, Canada to hunt the money pit, but it was all in vain.
There is an interesting story which led to the discovery of the fact. In 1795, Daniel McGinnis, a 16 years old lad, found a clearing in front of an old oak tree bearing the marks of unnatural scarring, which indicated a depression beneath the tree. Daniel along with two friends of his dug the marked area and gradually started to find packed logs at different intervals. With unrelenting expedition nine years later they found a stone which had an inscription: “Forty Feet Below Two Million Pounds Are Buried”.
From 1866 – 1959, 7 more expeditions were made but none of them was successful. Strange manmade constructions have been recovered from the pit over the years, but till now, the treasure still remains buried. Neither the treasure hunters nor the critics are sure about what exactly a money pit is and who created this mysterious structure.

2. Treasure of the Knights Templar:
Knights Templar is a small island on the fog cloaked coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, which is also seemingly conceal a magnificent treasure. Its apparently contains massive amounts of gold and silver bullion, the crown jewels of royal European families, religious art pieces sacred to both Judaism and Christianity.
The Knight Templar have been linked to the mystery of Oak Island by many as they both have similar history records which suggests that they both had the intension to deposit treasure in the Money Pit. ‘The Knights Templar’ was actually a military and religious band of man, who used to protect the highways of the holy land. The Kings of Paris used to deposit their wealth and gold in literally world’s first ever bank, which can only be withdrawn in Jerusalem. Now this Templar started to grow immensely and when Jerusalem and Holy Lands were lost to the Islamic rules, the Templar had been dumped to save it from French King. When this Knights templar colony died, this became anonymous and it’s still a mystery what happened to that Templar treasure.

3. The Amber Room:
This is a chamber of entire decoration of amber panels backed with gold leaf, semiprecious stones and mirrors. Because of its marvelous beauty, it was once upon a time called as the “Eighth Wonder of t he World”. The King of Prussia, Friedrich Wilhelm I, made this room which would be of $142 dollars worth now. He later gave it to the ruler of Russian Empire.
But this room was lost during World War II when in January 1945, after air raids and a savage ground assaulted the city. In 1979 efforts began to rebuild the Amber Room at Tsarskoye Selo. After a long reconstruction, Russian craftsmen completed in with the finance provided by Germany. The original Amber Room is said to be the world’s priceless and greatest lost treasures.

4. San Miguel & The 1715 Treasure Fleet:
In the war of 1715, when King Philip V of France had Become Spain’s first Bourbon King, a group of 12 ships which were loaded with gold bars, silver ingots, pearls and emeralds from Central and South America sank, which would be of worth of $200 presently. 8 of these ships water rediscovered. The four which are still remained undiscovered are:

San Miguel: It was a 22 cannon frigate with 62 members, which sunk in Amelia Island.

Nuestra Senora de Concepcion: It was a Spanish Galleon of the Nueva Espana fleet reported to have sunk on July 1715. Its remains have not yet been identified.

El Ciervo: It was a merchant ship that was a part of the Los Galleons fleet. It was headed by the flagship, plus one other small merchant vessel. It’s principle cargo was Brazil wood and Tobacco.

La Holandesa: This was a Dutch buit merchant vessel, formerly known as ‘Neustra Senora del Carmen’. The ships name was changed to ‘Nuestra Senora de La Popa’ by the ship’s captain Antonio de Echevera. The vessel is said to have grounded during the hurricane. If this ia the case it is likely that the vessel was completely salvaged by the Spanish, including its hull, and no trace remains.

5. The Lost Faberge Eggs:
This egg called Faberge egg was believed to be the Easter gift from Tsar Alexander III to his wife Tsarina Maria Feodorovna in 1887. It was made by Faberge and hence is the name. It was made up of gold and gem studded, and was also decorated with diamond-encrusted ribbons of leaves and roses and three large sapphires. It also contained a gold watch by the Swiss watch maker Vacheron & Constantin.

In 1918, after the death of the Romanovs, the House of Faberge was nationalized and ransacked by the Bolsheviks. Faberge and members of his family left Russia on what was to be the last diplomatic train to Riga, not realizing that they would never be able to return to their beloved Russia again. The egg was lost then. When Faberge saw that all was lost, all of the members of the imperial family on Russian soil had been murdered, he then fled to Switzerland, where he died in 1920, out of grief for his family.

All other jewelry and the eggs were sent, by order of Lenin, to Moscow. They were lost in some dark passage in the Armoury storerooms; nobody knew where they were. There were crates containing the eggs remained, unopened, guarded by Kremlin staff. There is every possibility of the being somewhere in the country itself but there are no traces yet.

How about Cocos Island Treasure. Thomas Jefferson Beale Treasure. Dutch Schultz Treasure. I think Cocos Island Treasure has the best lure to real Treasure Island.

I am sure there are treasures out there that have been salvaged, and no one knows. That was the mantra in the past, tell no one. It should be that way today. I am sure there are a few of these "unfound" treasures that have been found.

:laugh: Yo Ho!, PIRATE!!! :laugh:
I can always go back to the good old days and search alone, quietly and no matter who asks "I have found NOTHING!" Come on scubasmitty, 1bootyseeker, Steve, John, Jeff, let's go find nothing and brag about it. I see nothing, I know nothing and I hear nothing. I just be as dumb as a rock, I guess. Yuup! A gold rock.

:) I'm working on getting the haulout money in place so I can haul out and get the hull and bottom back in shape. I should be able to do something in about a week. I intend to haul out somewhere in St Pete or Tampa. I should be out of the water for about 6 to 8 weeks or there about. I'll post when I get ready to start on the other thread. I have been working on some financing options and, Thanks to a couple of friends with the means to help, I will soon be in a state where I can look forward to getting the boat back in shape and looking good. I think I'll put an extra coat or two of bottom paint this time. The last bottom paint is gone and buildup on the bottom is awful. :( I may just decide to go treasure hunting periodically and find nothing. :woohoo: I wouldn't want Spain or Peru to get upset because I was looking to really find something. :woohoo:

Welcome Aboard Treasure Works Mashallah! It's good to see new members come aboard. The date on this particular thread is 4 years old but renewing a thread and drawing new interest is always welcome. I assume the expedition you mention is the Oak Island Treasure. I have been following the show with interest but feel that possibly someone in the past had found and recovered part or most of the treasure on another area of the island. I can't figure why such an elaborate treasure hiding system would have been put in place hundreds of years ago. Booby traps were common but I have never even heard of anything of this magnitude anywhere in the world before. I may be wrong, but to go to this level of deception and trap building seems a bit much. Even with todays technology and heavy equipment the search has cost millions, many lives and over 200 years of searching to produce basically nothing, I see no way this treasure was buried by anyone back in that time of technology and available resources. Just the water traps seem beyond the ability of the time the treasure was supposed to have been buried, But, then who am I to question the experts and all those who say it was done by the people of the day just using slaves and sailing ships to haul treasure, equipment and build such an elaborate underground system so deep in the earth? I hope that Rick and Marty really do find the treasure they seek. They have earned the right to be the ones who strike it rich after all their hard work and dedication to the project. I wish them well and all of the luck they need to find the real treasure. I would love to see them prove all the "Nay Sayers" wrong and come away with treasure beyond measure.

Well, I am going to get back to my work of getting another boat ready to head out treasure hunting the forgotten areas of wherever I happen to be traveling through. Though I may never find that awesome treasure like Mel and others I will never stop searching. But, then again, if I did, no one may ever know. :evil: Find it, recover it and keep your mouth shut! :evil:
