This is the story of a half-gallon glass fruit jar filled with $50 gold coins that lies buried near the ruins of an old barn. The site is within 50 yards of a California highway. The story was told to me by an old man who remembered the West as it was before the turn of the century. Here is how it happened, when the old timer was a small boy in the foothills out of Placerville (Hangtown), California. The story is related in his words, just as be told it to me, without quotes.
