I thought I'd make a stuff for sale page that our readers can put here on the blog. The only thing I ask is that the items be related to treasure or treasure hunting in some manner. Just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can post it here on the blog. To kick things off I'm going to make a package of items that don't come along very often. This is a package deal, but for the right price I'll sell the items seperate. To keep the article small enough for the blog I will use JJ for Jesse James.
2 original 1930's Joe Hunter topo maps for counties in Oklahoma. These have markings of sites on them that he was hunting. 1 original Joe Hunter Texas topo map that has no markings. 2 *copies* of Joe Hunter Texas topo maps with markings. These 2 go to counties in the Texas Panhandle. I haven't hunted for what or why the maps were marked. This will be for the buyer to figure out.
