Mysterious Map For Monday Mystery...!

With times being hard for most folks, here is a map that could help the old pocket book!

The only problem is that you have to decipher the map first! Lots of folks have taken a shot at it, but as of today the treasure connected to the map remains hidden! Nice way to start a Monday mystery, right?

Lue Treasure Map



The only legendary treasure to have a map that directs you to 14 tons of gold is the Lue. As mystifying as the code is, it has long been assumed the only tools needed to decode the Lue is a one dollar bill, a key and a sound understanding of Masonic symbolism. Published by Karl Von Mueller, some speculate the “map” consists of various mathematical formulas.

Believed to be in the United States, the legend of the Lue claims the treasure is 14 tons of gold. The gold was brought to the US by the Nazis in a plan to sabotage the US economy and prevent Americans from entering World War II. After hearing the plan, the Gold Act was instituted to circumvent the Nazis’ plan. Failing to prevent the US from entering the war wasn’t the only failure in Nazis’ grand scheme. They also failed to decipher the Lue and the Nazi loyalist that created had died. Ultimately they were unable to retrieve the treasure and returned to Germany.

I have to admit that I got this from the folks at Listverse. If I've posted this before, I apologise. Still, it makes for a good mystery!

Better have coffee out on the patio this morning.Anyone bring cookies today?

Good one, Mr. Hermit. Why don't they just ask someone who is a member of the Mason's? It's 70 here - unbelievable! Mamahen, I'll take two - thanks!

That's got all the elements of an epic treasure hunt.

It is easy to get bitten by the treasure hunting bug. I've had a taste of it myself but it's easy to go crazy with these things.

I love that one though.

Hmmmm...let's see. So many steps with the sun on the right...oh heck, I can't figure it out. Good one, Mr. Hermit.

I think I have an old dollar bill somewhere so now all I have to do is to learn Masonic symbolism. Easy :-) :-) :-)

Have a great day!
Christer.

Hey Mamahen...
Yeah, I guess it is a little different!

Pumpkin bars sound good!

Thanks for coming by today!



Hey Phyllis...
I think that many have tried that! Couldn't hurt, though!

Thanks for the visit today!



Hey Sixbears...
A lot of folks take it way too far! My Grandpa King was a full blown treasure hunter. He'd get the bug and off he would go!

Thanks for dropping by today!



Hey Momlady...
Tough one, isn't it? Still, it's fun to think about!

Thanks for coming by today!



Hey Linda...
That's another good one to ponder! We all could use a bit of that!

Weather is all crazy around here. Changes every 5 minutes, i5t seems.

Thanks for coming by today!



Hey Jo...
I'd sure like some of those snicker doodles!

Thanks, sweetie, for coming over today!



Hey Barney...
Always glad to have you drop by! The more, the merrier!

Thanks for the visit today!



Hey Christer...
If you find it, don't forget where you heard about the map! Maybe I should get a finder's fee!

Thanks for comingt by today!
