    Gold Rush in Poland

    Posted on September 1st, 2015 by Joe G

    A local legend in the Polish city of Walbrzych may be soon realized as true.

    Two men recently informed authorities that they found a Nazi train full of gold and other valuables. Deputy culture minister Piotr Zuchowski added to the excitement when he said that he had seen outlines of the train from a radar device.

    Legend of the train says it was fleeing the Red Army in 1945 when it reportedly went missing. The alleged site of the Nazi gold train is between the 61st and 65th kilometer of tracks between Walbrzych and Wroclaw.

    Upon the news of the discovery, many treasure hunters and residents from the area, and even some from Germany, have arrived to the area equipped with metal detectors and other treasure hunting tools.

    The governor of the area said he has doubts of the train’s existence; he has put together a team of geologists and historians to look into the alleged find. He has also send guards to patrol the area, as trains are still running on these tracks, presenting the danger of an accident. Military members will be examining the site as well.

    So far, the only finds reported are rusty pieces of metal.

    Had a Great Experience

    I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.

    I would do business with them again

    I found the Chicago Gold Gallery to be a very honest and reputable shop. I would highly recommend this store to anyone buying and selling their possessions.
