What's New?: Nothing from me. I have not been working on the Beale Ciphers for over three years now, but I still peruse the message boards from time to time and keep an eye on latest developments (thanks Ron G.). I'll continue to keep you posted.

For over 120 years the Beale Treasure Ciphers have captured the attention of professional and amateur cryptanalysts, as well as treasure hunters from all over the world. Alledgedly buried around Bedford or Montvale, Virginia is a treasure that today would be valued over $30 Million.

I have worked on the Beale Codes ever since I first learned about them on the May 18, 1988 broadcast of Unsolved Mysteries. Working on the codes at various times for over 18 years, I have learned alot of information regarding the ciphers that I would like to share with everyone. I do not believe the treasure still exists. But I do believe there is an answer to Ciphers #1 and #3. This webpage has been created as a central place for all those interested in working on this mystery.

My two promisses to you are that all information displayed on these pages will be FREE OF CHARGE. And if I ever obtain the answers to Ciphers #1 and #3, I will release the plaintext here FREE OF CHARGE. It is my goal to see to it that this mystery be SOLVED and not continued on by greed.
