LAST ROBBERY LOOT
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Where is the loot from Butch Cassidy’s last in Idaho?
Butch Cassidy had pledged that his last bank robbery
would be the bank in Winnemucca, Nevada. After the robbery, he and Sundance
planned to head to New York and then set sail for Buenos Aires. However, after
the robbery he realized that most of the loot was gold coins a matter of fact
$32,200 of it. Butch Cassidy was not fond of gold coins; he preferred paper
money and negotiable bank securities, which are easier to carry.
One of bunch, Harvey Logan was not planning to
travel with Butch and Sundance to Buenos Aires. He also wanted to do one more
heist and convinced Butch into one last caper. This time it was the Great
Northern Railroad that was hit in Wagner, Montana where they walked away with
$40,000 in negotiable bank notes. Bunk and Sundance kept with their plan, left
for New York, and then sailed to Buenos Aires.
The rest of the bunch, including Harvey Logan
headed toward Idaho. In their possession were six or seven sacks full of gold
coins along with their share of negotiable bank notes. Within six months, Harvey
Logan was captured in Tennessee. In his suitcase, the only thing that was
recovered was paper money and one dollar in gold.
There are several stories concerning the rest of
the gang that did make their way to Idaho and buried the gold along the creek
north of Stage Road between Wallace, Idaho and Spokane, Washington. So, the gold
coins that were part of Butch and Sundance’s last robbery have never been found.
Today, the $32,200 gold coins would be worth a fortune. No matter, how many have
searched for the coins, none as of this time has been found.
