I would have taken as many gems as I could fit in the trunk of my car, and then reported the rest of it and tried to get the finder's fee. Though I doubt anyone would get the finder's fee in this case. "Sure guy! Here's your 900 million dollars! Have fun!"
You can't just want into bank with a bar of gold and cash it in. But gems? Sell one here to a jewelry store, sell off another one there to a pawn shop. Just every once in a while when you need some cash. If anyone asks, it fell off a necklace. Or one of your rings. Happens all the time.

Two people in Poland say they may have found a Nazi train rumoured to be full of gold, gems and guns that disappeared in World War Two, Polish media say.
The train is believed to have gone missing near what is now the Polish city of Wroclaw as Soviet forces approached in 1945.
A law firm in south-west Poland says it has been contacted by two men who have discovered the armoured train.
Nazi gold train 'found in Poland'
The Polish source (wiadomosciwalbrzyskie.pl) states the train may have up "300 tonnes of gold on board," and be worth up to 9 Billion in US dollars. No confirmation that anything has been found however. The two men are trying to get an official agreement from the city that they are due their 10% finders fee before revealing where the train is. Lots of speculation going on...

Those 2 men who found the gold are wanting a 10% finders fee or they will not give the government the location of the train.
While I agree that they were not a part of collecting / pillaging / taking / stealing etc etc and argument can be made that it belongs to people who were unfortunate enough to be alive when Hitler was doing his William the conqueror bit. If it can be verified as authentic and from the Nazis then it needs to go back to survivors who were affected.
To me it comes across as receiving stolen property and considering what was occurring at that time its putting it mildly.
just my 2 cents.

I wonder how it was hidden, and if anyone ever came back for any of the treasures on the sly?
You can bet the blokes who found it have stashed what they can, just in case........

There are many abandon and hidden train tracks in the US. I dont know that you could hide a train though. But the Nazi's were pretty good at hiding their tracks. Cant wait for Antartica to melt out. Might be some cool stuff there too.
