Format: Paperback
This is one of the most popular treasure hunting pamphlets ever published.

Back in the day, Bob Nesmith's old Foul Anchor Archives must have sold hundreds of copies. You may well across a copy with his coveted book seller's little paper label on the inside back cover.

"There are a few books, however, that will be of interest to those interested in metal detecting in general. One of the best around is 'Buried Treasures and Lost Mines' by Frank L. Fish.

"This book is a collection of brief stories on each of ninety-three treasures located in California and the western states. The most impressive thing about this book is the author, whose name and reputation are well known to metal detector enthusiasts everywhere. Frank Fish started treasure hunting in 1932 with a crude forerunner of today's metal detectors. In the years since, numerous magazine articles have told his adventures and through them he has been an inspiration to a great many treasure hunters. In addition to the treasures stories and locations, the book contains valuable information on how to go about finding them. Mr. Fish passed away early in 1963, but his book will continue to inspire treasure enthusiasts for a long time to come."

- "Metal Detector Handbook," by Art Lassagne (1963)

Frank Fish had a "Treasure Hunting Gold Rush Trading Post" Museum in Amador, California, filled with coins, guns and other weapons, and relics. Did Mr. Fish find them himself? Was he really a successful treasure hunter?

KvonM once offered to take a copy of this pamphlet and tell me from whom Mr. Fish had purchased each relic. But there can be no doubt Fish was out in the field in the early days of civilian metal detector use.
