Donna Skillman made the discovery today. It appears it is now known what Jesse James did with his loot. From a web site we learn, apparently Jesse went into the furniture business.

Sit on it, treasure hunters !

  For what it's worth department, the History channel and some 'hunters' with badges and well armed, took a trip to Kansas for some of Jesse' coins.   They located some with ground penetrating radar....like to have that unit.....in a jar.  Gold and Silver...both. I think the domination was $20... worth a bundle today.  They plan on showing more later.  Seems as though Jesse was much more than just a bank / train robber.....he was financing the come back of the south !

Chuck, I deal with that crap all the time. All I have to do is look at my blog stats from our web site to know when something's going on with those con artists. Then we proceed to take apart their lies. You can see them at the bottom of the page link.

  Not very Victorian looking but cushy.And here I thought that Jesse went into the ceramics business.Is this furniture from the Knights of the Golden Circle line of stash your loot somewhere under the upholstery furniture?

There is a Knight of the Golden Circle line, but it's very hush-hush.

Eric, you mentioned the  "fantasy"  books about Jesse--you should also see the  "fantasy"  and malarkey that has been spread about Billy the Kid!  IT IS ALMOST ALL A LOT OF MALARKEY!

Either the picture of the chair and ottoman was taken with a wide-angle lens, or the Jesse James line is designed to fit our wide-angle kiesters.

 Sue,

   You notice that the furniture depicted is called "Jesse James Group" so that chair must be made to accommodate his gang.

Yeah, and the sofa's for their horses. Pass the whiskey and beer.

Eric--I've long maintained that at least 95% of what most people think they know about Jesse is myth.
