Yukon Cornelious Could Not Be Reached For Comment

This is simply an insanely cool find. Tons of silver from the Raj sunk by Nazi U-boats on its way to Britain in 1941. Dirk Pitt should have found it.

How they found the treasure is even more insanely cool. (Click on the link to read the story. Heard it on NPR this morning. Amazing.)

In Biblical terms, that comes out to about 3,364 talents.

Put another way, that's about 25 cubic yards of silver, minus a bit for corrosion.
