Get ready to put your fedora on, here are 25 Undiscovered Lost Treasures Waiting To Be Found.
The Oak Island Money Pit
First discovered in 1795 by a 16-year-old, this site in Nova Scotia has long been thought to house pirate treasure. Despite frequent attempts over hundreds of years, no one has found anything. Why do people think it has treasure? Because they found a stone slab not native to Nova Scotia 27 meters below the earth that read, “Forty Feet Below Two Million Pounds Are Buried.”
The Lost Dutchman Mine
In the Southwest United States lies the Superstitious Mountains and a mine discovered by German immigrant Jacob Waltz that is said to contain gold. Waltz kept the location a secret and took it with him to his grave. While about 8,000 people a year make the effort to find the mine, they are all unsuccessful, some tragically dying in the process.
The Beale Treasure
An American man named Thomas J. Beale and thirty other adventurers located a mine near Santa Fe housing a treasure of gold, silver, and jewels. They took the treasure and secured it elsewhere. Exactly where is still a mystery. While Beale created three separate ciphers telling the names of the partners and the treasure’s exact location and description, no one has yet been able to crack the code, even though the ciphers were published as “The Beale Papers.” Many have accused it of being a hoax.
Menorah from the Second Temple
After Solomon’s Temple was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar II in 586 BCE, many years later it was rebuilt into the Second Temple in 513 BCE. Sadly, the Second Temple was also destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE with only the western wall intact. What we know is that a large golden seven-branched Menorah was inside and likely taken by the Romans back to Rome. What has happened to it since then remains a mystery.
The Treasure of Lima
Said to be the largest real life lost treasure mankind has ever known, the exact location of this famous treasure on the Isla del Coco has confounded many explorers. Several infamous pirates such as Benito of the Bloody Sword and even former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt have visited the island in search of this great treasure.
