Nick Mead, 55, discovered the five gold bars in the Russian T54/69 while restoring it to add to his collection of 150 military vehicles.

 

Gold is truly where you find it...lol.

Their trouble is only beginning now.  The thieves and the potential owners will all want a piece.  

We'll see if the smiles they have on the posing pictures lasts.

I volunteer for similar trouble :smile:

Funny part is pictures of gas tank, no pictures of gold. The gold bar photo is a stock photo of more than five bars. Surely you would not give it to police without taking photos of it. And who does not have a camera nearby these days? They say they were filming it.

Personally, I would not have called the police. There is no crime to report. I bought the tanks as is, they and what is in them is mine.

I'm with Steve, but If I found it there would be nothing I could find but tank parts. I swear, who finds gold bars in a tank of a tank and then reports them to the police? Couldn't trust one another?

 

I do hope they get a slice of the pie for being honest, at least.

 

Found this: at the link below. Seems no images of the actual find yet.

He added: “We didn’t know what to do. You can’t exactly take five gold bullion bars down to Cash Converters without questions being asked, so we called the police.”

      I was going through a couple of folders on my computer to see what was in them and came across this 72 page PDF. Apparently Thomas Jefferson Hurley in 1900 was a member of American Institute of Mining Engineers  and  American Geographical Society.
      The quick look I had at it, it looks like it mainly deals with gold found in the USA, so it may be of some interest to people in the States.  I did a very quick google search to see if I could spot this PDF and didn`t find it, so I have uploaded it into the cloud and if you want a copy, be my guest. You can either look at it online or download it.  It`s a 7.18mb download.   I have no memory what so ever of how I came to have this PDF. Dave
