Two gold bars hidden in a World War 2 gas mask tin canister
A reminder of an extraordinary discovery from 4 years ago, when diggers with help metal detectors then found two gold bars hidden in a German container for a gas mask!
Most of us can only dream of such a find, which does not mean that they do not take place. I think this is the perfect find for the ‘Photographs and Artifacts with a Short Story’ category. Exactly 4 years ago, the internet circulated photos and information about the discovery of 2 gold bars hidden in German cans for a gas mask from the Second World War. Certainly it was someone else’s war loot, as you can see, the eastern front had to “absorb” the previous owner who had hidden or lost his treasure in the fight.
The place where the discovery was supposed to take place was the Kirov district in the Leningrad Oblast in Russia. Apparently the Wehrmacht gas mask сanister can was in a swamp. In fact, however, we’ll never know exactly where it was hidden.
