Abstract:

"Who doesn't dream of finding a buried treasure? Money found under the mattress; cash hidden in a piano; a vast fortune in gold coins from a 17th century Spanish vessel - all of these are true stories of people who have stumbled on a 'buried treasure.' But where there is money, the law (and taxes) are not far behind. Buried Treasure : Finders, Keepers, and the Law is a fascinating look at real-life situations and the legal interpretation of the old rule of 'finders keepers.' Although this book may not tell you how to find a treasure trove, it will help you determine if you can keep your treasure once found"--Cover flap.
