Shayna Seymour, Emmy winning journalist, and co-anchor of WCVB's nightly news magazine, Chronicle
came out with us in September of 2021, and hid a LARGE glass diamond on one of the Retreat Trails in Brattleboro .
Watch Shayna bury the treasure in this edition of the Chronicle.
This cryptogram reveals where Shayna hid her jewel . According to Dr Balderdash , Dean of the University of Brattleboro, it was found in one of the notebooks left in this town when James fled from Vermont to the Boston area.
T. P. James' signature is dated 1878. That either means T. P. James was psychic, and knew Shayna was coming,
or this is a forgery. Either way, solve this cryptogram and you will learn exactly where her diamond is hidden.
Other cryptograms with clues to glass jewels hidden in Brattleboro, are scattered on this website,
including the "Jade Frog" treasure map tile Cynthia Parker-Houghton created for the Chronicle television show.
The Jade Frog treasure map tile, which is farther down this page, gives clues to a second jewel
which is hidden in the same general area as Shayna's gem.
It is impossible to find the Jade Frog's Jewel without cracking the treasure tile code. Good Luck.
If you crack one of these coded message, and are heading out to retrieve one of the diamonds
PLEASE bring a replacement treasure
(made of all natural materials,like stone, wood or glass)
for the next person who comes searching.
Great replacement treasures are available at Experienced Goods and at Beadniks, in Brattleboro.
