BC), plus the Genoese, Byzantine and Turkish coins and a great variety of jewelry III-V centuries AD.e.All this wealth has been transferred in the Kerch Historical and Archaeological Museum, and kept there until the beginning of the Great Patriotic War.

Some witnesses even claim to have seen how out of the truck, which was round in all directions scattered shiny coins, but, as we understand, at that time people were not up to the coin - to save lives.

As a result, the nearest village Otnosovo drive only five trucks and the rest somewhere disappeared.Vyazma had already been invaded by the Germans, and therefore head of the column, most likely made a decision: to burn paper money and gold and silver to dig up the best times.Why "probably"?Because there was no one alive of the participants of the events.After the war, local people found in the surroundings of Otnosovo set of silver coins release of 1924, never were in circulation - obviously they were the remains of the bombed-out vehicles.But the main treasure - gold bars of Smolensk Bank - have not been found.
