In 1981-82 lat/long coordinates would be very general. That is, degrees would be the only accurate data that the normal citizen would calculate from a map. Anything with accuracy down to minutes and seconds would be a dream.

Not impossible, but one would need a map with a lat/long grid printed on it AND hope there was enough detail on that map that shows the park you are looking for. They would next need to measure that map using the proper scale and then would need to calculate the distance measured from that scale and convert it to minutes and seconds of a certain degree.

If Preiss wanted us to decipher this from the numbers you believe are coordinate data, there would be no reason to sprinkle in square roots or other manipulations of those numbers. A full and clear list of the coordinate numbers would be disguised well enough on their own.

If you don’t believe me, give it a try with a ruler and a map and let me know how you make out. Google maps and GPS have made navigating life a bit easier in the last 37 years.

I agree, but it did land me in the park.

I made several visits to Langone Park, and when I came across the sundial, I felt it had to have some significants. Then I saw what was at the 12 o’clock position. Then, I thought about the final lines of the verse. “18th day, 12th hour, lit by lamp light, in truth be free”. And I applied it to the sundial, which led me to my spot.

The lamp that is directly in front of the Langone Memorial bench’s. But it didn’t end there! “ lit by lamp light in truth be free” this told me the casting of a single lamp would narrow my search even more. Then my fellow hunter noticed that in the painting, there is only one source of light coming from above the woman.

I know, it was now down to a radius of 360* around the lamp, but I felt I could narrow that down even more. There was the sidewalk were the bench’s where. Then it hit me! The casque in Cleveland had been buried behind a wall, what if this was the case for Boston? That would put it behind the bench’s, on the other side of the wall, where only a small amount of lamp light would fall. This is the spot.

I'm sure BINGO is all over it with his GPR. Can't wait for the results.

The field and fence looks to be generally unchanged since 1983.

The area behind the fence has had some considerable renovations over the years. I'm sure the poster's theory has plenty of wiggle room to keep it alive and well. But, my most basic question still stands; how do you logically get to a very specific area with any confidence? A spot that is actually worth burning a favor with Park officials AND worth going through the effort of digging.

I still believe this puzzle is more about finding the actual spot that the casque was buried, not finding a general area and digging endless holes until you find a casque or give up. It has to be that way, otherwise, the found casque count will likely stay at two.

I'll try to find out exactly what was right there in that area behind the little league field back in the late 70s early 80s. Looks kind of like a playground to me. I'll ask a few neighbors who grew up here, they may have photos.

The Langone site is almost completely demolished. I took some pictures this morning and spoke to the site forman and an operator. They haven't seen anything, but will keep an eye out. I gave them my contact info if anything turns up. Believe it or not, this actually works in Boston. The last picture is from a call that I got a few weeks ago. A laborer dug this up and his forman remembered a conversation that we had last year. When he called me, he said that he had found the top of a ceramic box with a little monster on the top of it... He was sooo proud of his discovery.

Field light pole bases are painted orange.
