#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. Maybe since it was really old, she might have really wrote it, but the writing disappeared and the dent from her writing it was still there.
    Please reply!!

  2. I think the paper said EUREKA because the person that wrote it finally found a way to communicate in secret. Please write back.

  3. I think my theory is that …… Cause the the saying EUREKA!!!!!(maybe not the exclamation marks in it😳😳😳😳😳) which means I FOUND THE GOLD…EUUUURRRREEEEKKKKAAAA!!!! like when your happy and all in that mood. So maybe the coin is made out of gold or it was really old so it meant a lot to the USA’s history.You should show it to the president.

    P.S. I was from California so you could see how I know these stuff πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

  4. Maybe G. J. wrote the letter on top of the envelop (I know it’s spelled with a P, i just wanted you to know that I read the book)?

  5. Maybe her sister was excited about writing to Ms. Prott and decided to write EUREKA on the outside. But she was so excited she pressed down on the envelope so hard, when she was writing EUREKA!!! And she didn’t notice she had indented the envelope until after she had done it.

  6. Has anyone realized that Glenora Jean Prott now lives in “Eureka” Avenue? Maybe G.J. in the previous letter asked, “What neighborhood should I move to? Only secretly write it so no enemies can read the street of my new house.” That way the sister would have replied, “Eureka” in a secret way.

  7. Sorry,forgot the book. Had to re-read. Starting over:REWIND REWIND REWIND…
    Maybe it was written in Europe (close to Eureka)and they wrote it to someone like you back then. Never know. Anyways,I still think it was just a prank to one of their friends back then or so. Plus, Eureka Avenue now gives me an eerie feeling everytime I go down it for some reason…like somebody is watching me as I drive down the road…

  8. I think Eureka was indented because it was all just a little prank. Obviously,Eureka is something someone says when they have an idea,and maybe they were saying “Eureka! I’m going to pull a prank on the Mac & Cheese boy! (No offence)” And,like me,I write while I talk so while he/she was saying “Eureka” they accidently indented it in. Seems legit to me.

  9. maybe when they (the prott sisters) were younger they made up a secret language and it was oppisits so eureka ment something bad, like someone was dying.(g. j. protts sister)

  10. I think that the Eureka was in that letter because it was to make kids think that they had found some kind of treasure to make you rich.
