#1-Eureka Evidence Theories

Eureka Indentation

I never did figure out about why the word Eureka was dented into the paper that was wrapped around the 1909-S VDB Lincoln cent and the heart necklace? If you have a cool theory, please explain it below.

Comments from my Readers & Friends

  1. Dear Ronald (Cheesie) A Mack
    Love the book.Probly Ms G. J. Prott dented it and hid it right when she moved.I think she hid it so noone could find it and sell the coin.

    love Phoenix Mullin

  2. I think that ms. prott indented eureka because she had discovered the coin and the necklace somewhere and didn’t want anyone to see what she wrote so she wrote in invisible ink.

  3. its because the person who wrote it had to write the adress on the letter and it got indented into the paper

  4. He Lived on eureka ave or whatever so i think it went through the envalope onto the paper

  5. I think the letter said Eureka because it might have been telling Ms.Prott that she found something and a good street with good houses to move into after she was old in age.

  6. Eureka is what Albert Einstein said when he had a breakthrough. I think. Maybe it was Issac Newton?

  7. Well,it’s obvious that “Eureka!” is the motto of California (P.S Proof on the state seal.). So maybe this has a connection to someplace in California?

  8. come to anita scott elementry and meet me and my sister tatum and i she is the only tatum in the school so if you do come you can just say i am here to see tatum in mrs. chicks class in forth grade and remember to do it in 2017 please please pleaseit is the one thing i want the most in the world in all time and so do my friends they said so thereselves so think about it please oh and we live in royse city texas just so you know thanks for reading bye

  9. it was beacause that may be the place. p.s i go to sherman elementary school and you were great and u barfed on my friend angie

  10. I think it was put there because maybe G,j Prott’s sister FOUND this stuff before she died and so maybe she could have been writing some sort of letter or something and it went through and eureka sort of “leaked through the paper” and it was put there?
    who knows? maybe you shpuld tell G.J Prott about it she will probably know

  11. Maybe someone was writing the address on a piece of paper on top of the dented paper.
