The scooter will need knobby balloon tires to get around in that soft sand.

No problem.

I have one to Surly....

What was the rate of pay to soldiers in the 1860's & 70's

I don't think that amount of gold was intended for payroll. Seems excessive.

I have no idea, AZ, but I'll bet you have some info that relates it to the Precious Yellow.

Here's what I found on The Google:

Union privates were paid $13 per month until after the final raise on June 20, 1864, when they got $16. In
the infantry and artillery, officers were as follows at the start of the war: colonels, $212; lieutenant colonels,
$181; majors, $169; captains, $115.50; first lieutenants, $105.50; and second lieutenants, $105.50. Other line
and staff officers drew an average of about $15 per month more. Pay for one, two, and three star generals were
$315, $457, and $758, respectively.

The Confederate pay structure was modeled after that of the US Army. Privates continued to be paid at
the prewar rate of $11 per month until June 1864, when the pay of all enlisted men was raised $7 per month.

Of course, the latter got paid in Confederate dollars.


In $3, & greater denominations of gold coin values that could make sense.
The box could hold payroll for the entire fort.

💰 Buried Treasure: Mackenna's Gold

I thought of another way to keep a large portion of the Gold for yourself legally, IF you actually locate it.

Write the following letter to Wells Fargo:

We have ascertained the location of an 1860 shipment of Gold Coins buried in AZ.  They remain buried there and are not in our possession.  We will dig them up and return them to Wells Fargo for a 50% Finder's Fee of half of the coins recovered.  We will not excavate them otherwise, and they will remain buried until the SUN Goes Red Giant.

We'll be watchin' this one on the next movie night.

I am not going to dance with the devil however. No "memo's" to the cabal. That's called ASKING FOR IT !

The answer is still fuk'em  :coffee:

One serious note here...

When I was looking through the u tube vids of the area, I ran across some vids that dealt with
a rare breed of mustang that lives in this mountain range according to the horse people around here.
When the Spaniards came through in the 1500's some of their horses became isolated in this mountain range
and to this day live & breed & thrive in isolation.
If your interested,  just use Cerbat wild mustangs.

Nor really a "find".  I actually saw this film in the theater when it came out in 1969.

Lots of choices when it comes to metal detectors. You can spend $600 to $6000.  Good depth penetration is what you need for finding buried caches. They make gold specific ones, but apparently coins are often found inside iron boxes, so depth trumps specificity from what I've read.

I bought a new one back in '06 I believe.
Had to pawn it when times got tough post real estate era.
All I need is an El-Cheapo that rings when it sniffs Au.
The strong box size/dimensions were posted on the post here from the treasure hunter crowd.
If the photo there is of a real box used back in the day it is no-more.
I've done some relic hunting further back into the range up near the Golconda Mine. Found a rifle barrel still in tact, a lantern, heals of shoes,
and pans. Loads of Prince Albert tins, & bean cans. Those make nice mobiles or wind chimes for a rustic back porch look.
Hang them with fishing line on old rotted out Cholla cactus.
