    A few more items of interest:

    1. The Rusful token finder posted a photo of the token, and the ATT site has listed it as found.

    2. Indypair, who had sent Amy a solve awhile back, posted today:
    And, I have a fairly strong suspision that Amy did not find the Rusful token at the location I have been searching.
    So... if the token has been found legitimately by Amy, why is someone offering $1,000 for the solve to Rusful? I'm thinking that it is because this person is convinced that there are more tokens and is looking for a head start on finding them by knowing how the Rusful solve worked.

    Makes one wonder if there has been a teensy problem during the redemption phase, doesn't it? That, or someone is desperately convinced that there is more beyond Rusful, and they don't want to miss out.

    hmm with that tidbit of info elrohir, I must be wrong about how a token goes from missing to found to redeemed, you seem to implicate to redeem you give the solution not to "find", but i am on the same thought process as you with why they posted this in such a pointless spot (to "try" to stay under the radar)

    Searcherite,
    I would assume that if someone found a token, they would know what character it was for simply by looking at it. I wouldn't think they would ask for a solution to Rusful if the token they were holding had an ant on it.


    I agree with Sue. I believe that someone is looking for a "heads-up" as to -how- Rusful was solved,which is most likely??? the reason Amy hasn't posted her solution. It was probably done in a whole new way and that may be the basis for solving upcoming clues,tokens,books...

    Although I do think Amy could at least tell us in which state the darn thing was found !!

    Nica,

    When Amy posted that she found Rusful on ATT on 01/31, she first titled her thread "Rusful was found in California". The she edited it to say that "Rusful was found". Here is a clip from the thread...
    ***********************************************
    Amy:

    Just to let you know not to go out and buy airline tickets or to drive long distances to try to find the Rusful token. We found it on Saturday. We would have posted sooner but we didn't get the official approval to say anything to anybody until today. In fact, we still don't want to say too much but look to see it posted as missing real soon.


    =========================================
    quakrspecl:

    amy-

    In using the "Search" tool, I see your original Thread Title was Rusful found in California.

    Was it, indeed, found in Cali, or were you mistaken?

    Anyway, great work, if you have it.

    ************************************************** **

    I too think that those posts sound like a person with a Rusful token begging for how it is solved before the deadline.

    I believe Rusful was found {not sure exact date} but the pic of the token was posted on ATT on 1/31/06. Each of those messages had that little addition saying something like "6 days left to answer". . . . and the rules of ATT state that tokens must be redeemed within 30 days of finding it or that treasure becomes the property of the authors. Is it a coincidence that appx 6 days from now {when mysterious messages posted} is the 30 day deadline? I think not. The finder is scrambling because it wasnt a legit find.....a find, yes..... legit, no.

    I have to agree with fox. Logical assumptions. What a charade!

    Lets all get together, reverse engineer some plausable solve, split the grand and laugh our butts off when MS asks the finder where in the H%!! did they get that solve. hehehe.

    ps.....MS, please find a nice charity to donate the proceeds of Rusful's black diamond to.
