Treasure Box

First order of business. Welcome back UFO viewers!

Second order of business. The UFO Team has determined that the footprint we are leaving on Picasa is quite large. Too that end, we have created a new UFO portion on Picasa so you can navigate with more ease to find the photos you are looking for. Our photos from this point forward will be housed in the
UFO II portion where our older photos will remain in the old UFO portion.

This treasure of a Treasure Box was found in the usual place. The bottom of a container mixed in with all the usual detritus of life. And until opening it, the UFO Team had no idea what mysteries lay within.

The box itself is about the size of a largish paperback book. It is made of sturdy cardboard and is tan in color.

The first item removed from the box is a padlock. It is dense and heavy, possibly made of solid brass. There is a keyhole in the front and a smaller opening in the rear. The lock opens and closes but does not appear to lock. Across the locking part there is a stamp that resembles "Eureka Lock WKS."

Unknown at this time.


- Numerous facts were gathered from the private Richard Family Estate collection. These facts span numerous sources of information and contain genealogical data, photos, and newspaper articles.
