Forrest Fenn's Treasure Estimated to Be Worth $1 Million: Appraiser
The wealthy antiques dealer who hid treasure in the Rockies 10 years ago has come forward with a photo that he says proves it wasn't a hoax. Forrest Fenn announced earlier this month that a man who wished to remain anonymous found the chest of gold and jewels reportedly worth over $2 million. Inside Edition spoke to Dr. Lori Verderame, a prominent appraiser, for her opinion on the value. One coin is known as the "ship of gold" coin and dates back to 1857, and is said to be worth $15,000.
