Washington, DC - Early reports that a pair of treasure hunters has found the legendary Nazi gold train in a hidden tunnel somewhere in Poland were dismissed at first. But now government officials seem to think the story may be true. The Poles have laid claim to the haul, if and when it is found, acknowledging that the adventurers who say they know where it is would be entitled to a 10% reward.
The story goes that as World War II was coming to an end, the Nazis sought to make a getaway with the gold and artifacts they stole over the years from the countries they invaded.
It could be a record-breaking finder's fee if, as some say, the train is loaded down with some 300 tons of gold with a current value of nearly $12.5 billion, says the Association of Mature American Citizens. But, a local official claims the cargo may not be gold, but munitions that, if disturbed, could result in an explosively dramatic end to the story.
