Here is a website with the code and the story of buried treasure buried somewheres in the mountains of Bedford County, Va. The code is supposed to give the precise location of buried gold, silver, and jewels,at any rate it is an interesting read. I myself have spent many hours trying to decipher it. Good Luck!

Well a little feed back of what you think would be appreciated, some say its a hoax but its not been proven to be thus far, my husband swears its a hoax that the guy made it all up, at any rate anyone else worked on it? You got to keep in mind that in those days books were not as readily available as they are today and that most homes had very few books in them.

looks like a hoax to me. Maybe there's a new shopping centre opening up at the location coded, once someone deciphers it, 'secretly' tells people, and the word of the location gets round. Could be a very good marketing idea actually!!! Each friend tells 20 of a certain location!

Intriguing at least...

Might I suggest trying other documents, such as the Preamble to the Constitution, etc. and see if the code then works...???

Meh, it's obviously a hoax.

goose, without going to the link you supplied

(and therefore corrupting my memory)...i would point
out that in grade school, we learned of this Beale Chipher, and the treasure that was hidden., somewhere

i believe the cipher #1 was deciphered, which detailed the treasure trove..(was based on the 11th? word of the constitution?)

since then certain events same to pass:

* SS Central America, with gold & silver est +1bil $ on board was sunk off N.Carolina coast, later found...
(i suspect this was the treasure of Beale Cypher)

** The 2nd cypher (never solved) giving the location as
in Virginia....doesn't necessarily mean the State of Virginia, there are other Virginias....like in the Title:
...'Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus'.

~~~^^^~~~

Proposal, goose, since your invested time in this-->
would you be willing to share expenses if an expedition
is launched, upon reviewing my theory as to another possible location of Beale Treasure Trove??...& set up a LLC/LLP[u2u]

Want to know what I think? I think our leader.. letter writer purposefully made the other 2 letters complete gibberish and made the first decipherable to keep the illusion of keeping his end of the bargain.
I think he then went back to whereever the true location was and took all of the gold and silver for himself and "disappeared"

His NEW name was rockefeller.

I had heard this was solved, by the Sawyer family, which owned the land it was on.

(still looking for links)

I'm so poor right now I couldn't help finance a trip to Walmart to ride the horse, you know the .50 kind that plugs in. You know you are very right it might not be buried there except in the letter Beale wrote that it had been brought nearby to be buried which really never made sense to me, he also said that a letter would be dispatched in 10 years with the key to the code but he hinted it could be broken without the key and suggested to the tavern owner it would come to him which led me to believe perhaps the letter itself was the key to the code. I've tried to no avail to break it and tend to think it might be a hoax but then there is still a thought it might be real that every once and a while pushes me to try again.

This "treasure" has been on many television programs. Hundreds, even thousands have gone searching for the treasure in Virginia. I live in Northern Virginia, and I know quite a few people who have gone searching for it in the general area it is thought to be in. Still, no one has found it yet. Hoax? Maybe, but I'd invest in a metal detector just because in the Virginia area there are many war artifacts from past wars very close to the surface of the ground. People find relics all the time in this area, it's also very fun to do the searching.

I did an engine search on Beale, and the site below claims that the supposed treasure has been found.

Wow it looks like it makes sense but I wish they would give the way they broke the code, I'm sure it is a very simple code and when we see how it was deciphered we are all going to just shake our heads with disbelief that we did not get it. Did you see where they said very little treasure was there, it sounds as if some of the original owners came back and got it.

actually Jonna I was taking the concept from my the some concepts I learned from my university subject of Marketing Priciples and Exchange which i studied last year. I guess that Simpsons episode with the Angel skeleton does somewhat seem similar too.

I found a site which gives the codes out for free

What an interesting story. I just learned about it for the first time as someone bumped this old thread onto the main page of the forum. Here is a link to the page on the above mentioned bedford site that explains how they broke the code.

Check it out!

The site seems to have been significantly updated since this thread was posted in 2004. All of the info is there, including the few artifacts that were found at the location.

It's a great read and another, and to my mind, another example of why ATS is so great.

Have fun!
