Where are the jewels? Chest is only worth about $500k without them

20.2 pounds of gold has a melt value of $500k, even with intrinsic value it's not worth a million, let alone two.

I saw a video where someone indicated Forrest had removed the gems. But that simply cannot be. I've read countless times where Forrest gave an exact description of the gems. I see none of them in the pictures.

So what gives? Just more of the hoax??

"What’s in this treasure box? That question is also answered in my book, but the quick answer is: 265 gold coins, mostly American double eagles and eagles. Hundreds of gold nuggets, two the size of hen eggs, hundreds of rubies, 8 emeralds, 2 Ceylon sapphires, many diamonds, 2 ancient Chinese jade carvings, a 2,000 year old Sinu and Tairona necklace, Pre-Columbian gold bracelets and fetishes, and more."

The jewels were in the dragon coat bracelet. The one Sloanne's wife hated so he gave to Fenn. Not sure about the sapphires but there were only 2.

The emerald was in a ring found with metal detector. He removed most of the attractive stuff you see on Dal's picture. It was just there for eye candy. Bait and switch. If Fenn over sold the age of that, like he did with the chest, then it isn't that big of a deal either.

$500k for the box is about right. Fenn said no salesman was ever accused of under describing. Fenn was a salesman. He put the whole thing together for about $70k when gold was $200/oz

And all the pictures of the treasure chest containing huge gemstones? What, they couldn't fit? Plenty of room in that box.

It was all eye candy, the poem said finder only gets title to the gold, that is why he said listen good twice!

Finder! No jewels for you!

Eye candy? So false advertising. Got it. If I say I hid a treasure, show you 1 million in cash, and you find the treasure but there's only 20 bucks in there, you're gonna be pissed.

Forrest in his own words said the jewels were in the chest. If we can't trust that, we can't trust anything he says.

There are a lot of tiny jewels in that ugly bracelet. There might be a bag with a few other jewels.
Other than that, the finder got a bunch of dinged up gold coins with little numismatic value, some impressive gold nuggets, some gold dust, a few old gold pieces (mirrors and a frog), and a warped chest.
Estimates of the value ($2M) were greatly exaggerated.

Hugely exaggerated. At the expense of everyone who bought the book and looked for it.

Fenn refused to put a value on the treasure chest and just let the media run up the estimated value. It got so bad a few years ago, that Fenn said when the value gets to $10 million, he would go get himself.

So which media article finally triggered Fenn's promise?
