I have heard that there was a ruby found and it was gifted to a good friend of either General Douglas McArthur or General Dwight David Eisenhower. When he passed away, his family knew very little about it and it may have been sold at a garage sale. Who knows? His nephew knew of it, but was not there when the estate was settled. The man's daughters probably had no information of its significance, nor even what it was. It today, more than likely is in a collection or has been placed on an item of jewelry and its owner is happily unaware of its origin as a war relic, let alone a significant piece of history.
It was supposed to have been part of this same treasure trove.
