Interesting video on the U.S. Colt 1902 Philippine Model .45 caliber pistol. It was used in the Philippine War 1899-1902 by U.S. forces. It is a older pistol that was brought back into active service to use during this conflict-- specifically because U.S. soldiers were dissatisfied by the stopping power of their .38 caliber pistols. Apparently, thick jungle brush and stubborn bolo wielding Muslim guerrillas warranted upgrading to a bigger caliber bullet. These pistols are sought after today by collectors.

Can't get enough of this Philippine treasure legend. Great summary article covering the history of the WWII story of the silver pesos' that were dumped in Manila Bay, Philippines. There has to be more of them still sitting on the bottom of the bay. Probably not an easy dive-- I imagine there is tons of debris hiding them. But with a high tech underwater metal detector anything is possible. The pure silver pesos' could be worth a significant amount of cash.

Closer to home in the U.S.A-- Fascinating story about lost U.S. Union army gold shipment that disappeared during the Civil War. Supposedly, the F.B.I has been investigating the claim?

Apparently, the Philippines isn't the only country with Yamashita treasure fever. Thailand has long thought it held WWII lost treasure hoards.
