Re: “One Man's Treasure

Umm...and I quote, "It's important that those items sit in the dirt. Once it gets out of the dirt, if it's not recovered adequately, it's just a thing on the shelf. It has no importance to history."...This statement is the most preposterous statement I've heard in a long time. Let me get this straight, a 100-year old belt buckle 16" in the ground is somehow supposed to be admired and studied by the public? Huh? Where did these idiots get their degree's from? Museums around the world have been obtaining historic artifacts and items from private collectors for hundreds of years! In fact, the curator at the The Acropolis Museum in Athens states, "Private collectors are vital to the longevity and sustainability of museums worldwide. As much as we would personally like to find every item for all current and future exhibits, we just don't have the manpower or resources. It takes a cooperation between private collectors and history enthusiasts to put a successful exhibit together." Seems pretty straight forward to me...but then again, we do live in Idaho.

Re: “One Man's Treasure

Often times it is only when a detectorist like myself takes the time to locate it, dig it up, study it's history, and then have it framed as a educational conversation piece for my clients, friends, and family, is when it can be truly admired and shared. Kirk Halford and Jeff Altschul, I hope neither of you ever run for an elected office...it would be a huge waste of time and money since your "Big Government" ways of thinking would lead to the demise of your campaign. Instead both of you should attend the annual program that I hold at my son's elementary school where I share and educate our youth about the wonderful items that I have collected over the past 20 years. Trust me, I've done more "sharing" of our state's history with grade school kids than either of you have. The answer is not "Big Government," but these two bozo's wouldn't know the difference between a pull-tab and a 1901 Morgan Dollar. That's right boys, both of those items are archaeological finds...LOL!

Re: “One Man's Treasure

Just another example of "BIG Government" finding a way to wrap it's massive hands around the throats of it's citizens! I don't see the BLM or NFS throwing up arms when the utility companies install a dam, pave a new road, or sell land to a development company to build a ski resort or golf course! Nope, only when their financial interests are on the line, do they come out of the woodwork hiding behind the excuses of "history" and "archaeology." Since when does the BLM or NFS give two s*@(! about "archaeology?" Stealing from history? Excuse me, but a 100 year old horseshoe buried 12" in the ground cannot be admired or studied by the public!
