You just know it is real. How else could you share this priceless info with us and not hoard it for yourself?

Let's see... Mr. Honish searched for 23 years WITH THE MAP and couldn't find the mine. Yeah, sounds like it might be worth the $55,000.00!! (or not!)

OK, I hate to be a spoiler but,
Lat. 33.487 Long. 111.353
In a fault line, under about 20' of stones
(filled in by Apaches). There you go.
Who needs a map. I just saved somebody $55K.
Dig, baby, dig!

55 grand for some wrinkled old sheepskin rug with no fur? What a rip off. That has got to be the crappiest map I've ever seen. Terrible photo.

Gee, that sure looks like a great deal. If this sells, i'm seriously going to start making better fake maps and selling them for less.

I reported it as a counterfeit/scam to ebay. Did anyone else do this?

I thought perhaps some poor schmuck/potential buyer could waste his money spending it on a new car from GM or something else helpful to the economy.

Yeah, but it's going to cost me a couple hundred if I actually go out to buy a GPS now! Laughing

Well, I've tried to link to an image in the gallery of the map with that Lat/Long as a way point, but the image posting skill eludes me. I've learned it some time ago but alas, it's gone.
Good thing, too. Else everybody would be out there digging!! Keep it under your hat, OK??
