Michigan Jeweler, Bored Amid Coronavirus, Closes up Shop, Buries Inventory and Sells Treasure Hunts

A Michigan jeweler, frustrated with the coronavirus pandemic and looking for ways to support himself and keep busy, decided to shut down, pack up his inventory, and bury about $1 million of it around the state – to sell treasure hunts instead. He was very frustrated because his business wasn't going well either. Then, he said, he saw a news report about someone having finally found the infamous Forrest Fenn treasure – a literal chest full of gold that Fenn, a New Mexico antiquities dealer, purportedly hid in the Rocky Mountains a decade ago.
