"The 4.35 pounds gold bar was found in May of 1981 in a construction site of what is now Mexico's Tax Revenue Service offices near Mexico City's historic downtown. A worker found the bar buried about 15.7 feet deep and gave it to a team of archaeologists."

How ironic that it was found while constructing "Mexico's Tax Revenue Service Office". :shock: :lol: :shock:

Peace and fun,

Surly just one that got away. I’m sure a great many things are confiscated in the name of the tax revenue services world wide.

Hmmm... Just 1 bar, eh... So someone long past just created that one big bar of gold, and dug a 15 foot hole to bury it in.

Yeah, that's it. :idea: Honest all you government agents, there was just this one bar at the bottom of the hole. :twisted:
