Erabaru.net. Nick Mead, 55 tahun, adalah seorang kolektor fanatik tank yang memiliki koleksi 150 kendaraan militer. Baru-baru ini dia menemukan emas senilai 2,5 juta dollar AS dalam kompartemen bahan bakar dari tank Rusia yang dia beli hanya seharga 37.272 dollar AS.

Menurut Sun, Nick dan mekanik Todd Chamberlain sedang menghidupkan kembali tank T54/ 69 buatan Rusia untuk dijadikan barang koleksi mereka, dan saat itu mereka sedang memfilmkan diri sendiri yang sedang membuka kotak diesel.

Mereka melakukan hal tersebut supaya jika mereka menemukan amunisi, mereka dapat segera merujuknya kepada kru penjinak bom.

“Kami tidak tahu apa yang harus dilakukan. Anda tidak bisa membawa begitu saja lima emas batangan ke Cash Converter tanpa menjawab pertanyaan nanti, jadi kami menelepon polisi,”kata Nick kepada the Sun.

Nick mengelola Tanks-a-Lot, sebuah perusahaan rekreasi yang membawa orang-orang berkeliling di ladangnya di atas sebuah tank, di Helmdon, Northants.

Nick dan Todd telah melihat iklan penjualan tank di e-bay dan telah membuat kesepakatan. Ketika mengosongkan tank tersebut mereka menemukan amunisi senapan mesin dan khawatir kalau mereka juga akan menemukan senjata.

Namun bukannya menemukan senjata mereka malah menarik keluar beberapa emas batangan, masing-masing seberat lebih dari 5 kg.

Semua ini adalah emas batangan padat, masing-masing seberat lebih dari 5kg. (Screenshot video yang dibagikan di Facebook)

What would you have done

WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE.If, while you were restoring a captured Iraqi tank from gulf war one with lots of help from friends and family you made the find of your life.Earlier in the week you had found live 50 cal ammunition and had to call the firearms dept and hand it in pronto.So your already thinking other stuff could come to light and every time you un bolt another lump, you wonder what could be behind it. Then you can't understand why you can't lift the last external fuel tank even though you know it's been drained by yourself. All the fixings are undone, all the pipes are disconnected but it won't budge. Turns out it's just the sheer weight! with some help you manage to lever the fuel tank up with a crowbar then lift it higher with a scaffold tube. Its then that you see a suspicious square hole hacked in the bottom of the fuel tank. Your expecting guns but find five huge gold bars weighing about 5 kilos a piece. lots of useful suggestions from the team, Cash converters, cash for gold?- I don't think so. In the end it's a choice between the police, the Iraqi embassy or Kuwaiti embassy. Bear in mind the tank could easily have been involved with the invasion of Kuwait and the defence of Iraqi before it was captured by the British army and brought back to the UK as a trophy of war.If you report the find and it's taken away- it's unlikely you will ever see it again, but you know your squeaky clean and in the clear. who knows one day, probably not soon, it could legally be yours.WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE.
