Treasures come in different forms, sizes, and shapes, and they don’t necessarily have to be gold coins.
Here is an interesting story of a very unusual discovery with a most fascinating history.
As a teen in Knoxville, Tennessee, my family had the good fortune of having a dense wooded area behind the house for the kids to play and, like most young boys, I spent a lot of time in the woods building forts and playing soldiers with the other kids. This was in the mid 50’s.
While walking through the woods one day, I tripped on an object buried in the leaves. It moved slightly so I knew it couldn’t be a root. I reached down through the leaves and lifted the heavy article from the ground and, to my astonishment, I had stumbled upon a rifle.
