Scrap metal turns out to be $33 million Faberge golden egg

(CNN) -- A $14,000 sale find turned into millions of dollars for a man who'd been thwarted in his attempts to turn a quick profit by selling the tiny ornament to scrap metal dealers.

The man, who hails from the Midwest but wishes to remain anonymous, had been left financially stretched after he apparently overestimated what the tiny golden egg would be worth once melted down. He'd been hoping to make $500.

In a fit of desperation one night last year, he typed "egg" and the name engraved on the clock it contained -- "Vacheron Constantin" -- into Google. His search brought up a 2011 article in Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper describing a "frantic search" for the object: the Third Imperial Easter Egg, made by Faberge for the Russian royal family and estimated to be worth 20 million pounds ($33 million).

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/culturenews/8700286/Is-this-20-million-nest-egg-on-your-mantelpiece.html


The man contacted Faberge expert Kieran McCarthy and flew to London to visit McCarthy's workplace: Wartski jewelers in Mayfair, where the egg will be displayed to the public for only the second time, from April 14 to 17.

McCarthy said he had no warning about the visit. "A gentleman had walked in wearing jeans, a plaid shirt and trainers. His mouth was just dry with fear," McCarthy said, to the extent that he could barely speak. "He handed me a portfolio of photographs, and there was the egg, the Holy Grail of art and antiques."
The finder was far removed from the art and antiques world and so had not recognized the object's true value. After reading the article, he could hardly believe what he was in possession of, McCarthy said.

Until the 1916 overthrow of the tsar, Carl Faberge's jewelery workshop made 50 Easter eggs for the family, each taking a year or more to craft. According to Faberge, designs were produced in the greatest secrecy, "the only prerequisite being that they contained a surprise."
The 8.2-centimeter (3.2-inch) egg is on an elaborate gold stand supported by lion paw feet. Three sapphires suspend golden garlands around it, and a diamond acts an opening mechanism to reveal the Vacheron Constantin watch inside. The egg was thought to have been lost after the Soviets listed it for sale in 1922 as part of a policy of turning "treasures into tractors," but in 2011, Faberge researchers recognized it in a 1964 auction catalog, reviving hopes it had survived and prompting the Telegraph article.

After the revolution, 42 of the imperial eggs made their way into private collections and museums. Eight, including the Third Imperial Egg, were thought to have been lost. Two others are thought to have survived, though their locations remain a mystery.

Robert Bruce Duncan Redux

"Evolving Gold Corp. has entered into a private placement agreement with certain related parties of the company. The company will issue a total of 16.25 million common shares at a deemed price of two cents per share in consideration for settlement of debts of $325,000.
The agreement is subject to regulatory approval, and the common shares will be subject to a four-month hold.

In connection with the settlement of debt for shares, Bruce Duncan, chief executive officer, and Chuck Jenkins, chief financial officer, have agreed to forgive certain amounts owing and to amend their existing management agreements to remove bonus and RRSP contribution obligations, reduce change in control benefits to six months, and reduce management fees to $7,500 and $5,000 per month, respectively. These amendments to the management agreements, together with the settlement of outstanding fees owing, are intended to improve the financial position of the company and ensure that there are sufficient cash reserves to maintain operations while the company considers strategic options to increase shareholder value. The company intends to enter into additional debt settlement agreements with certain vendors and to take additional steps as part of a repositioning plan to ensure the future viability of the company."
So Bert took the executive bull by the horns in early 2012 and wowsers just look at that value creation in action as he and his sidekick now take a major salary haircut down to $ 12,500 per month.

Shares for "debt" at absolute rock bottom and damn it is ANOTHER Bert management success story. (from Bert's perspective)

Criminal Fraud - CEO openly lying on Stockhouse? - UPDATE

So our main suspect has just posted this ...

"2. In reply to Paragraphs 2 and 3 of Division 2 of the Response to Civil Claim, the Plaintiffs deny that they obtained the identity of Mr. Cooper prior to disclosure by Rogers Communications Inc. through illegal means such as computer hacking. The Plaintiffs suspected that Mr. Cooper was affiliated with the Stockhouse user account under the alias "Doobyus" as a result of statements made by Paul Hynek and John Carter, former business associates of Mr. Cooper, but did not have confirmation that Mr. Cooper was the registrant and sole operator of that user account until they received disclosure from Rogers Communications Inc."

So what? This is the reply to Cooper's defense. It seems strange we just got the street word of Cooper's defense itself and now our dope is posting the reply on SH?

Something for sure doesn't add up and we'll be pulling that file first thing in the morning. If this chit ain't in it I've got our man. Read more at http://www.stockhouse.com/companies/bullboard/v.ccb/canada-carbon-inc#IwIyfZGKHpvCUjtv.99
A poster on SH using the alias "BobGreenfield" has been caught red-handed spewing total falsehoods on the CCB.v thread.

That's nothing new of course but this particular poster is HIGHLY, and we do mean HIGHLY suspicious. The profile was registered on September 29, 2013 ... and this CEO registered "Smallcap52" on September 28, 2013. The material posted by this individual is amazingly in-depth into corporate affairs. Far too much in this opinion.
The direct and obvious falsehoods today were related to the Cooper court case.

Lets put this delicately. The CEO has been busted red-handed posting on SH with one profile. What would prevent the man from registering more than one profile? Not ethics certainly.

The falsehoods spewed by "BobGreenfield", if they were and are in fact authored by Robert Bruce Duncan, are fraudulent. We are on the case citizens and IF our suspicions are in fact true ...

Robert Bruce Duncan a PROVEN securities Bad Boy - Update IV

Status report - Robert Bruce Duncan is being compensated at the rate of $ 120k per annum and his WIFE Olga Nikitovic (CFO) is being paid 55k.

Pretty damn pathetic when one CANNOT find the critical disclosure of the CFO being FULLY intimate with the CEO. This venture deal is a poster boy for stupid sheeple. "Nuclear graphite" indeed.

________________________________________________________

After reading a few more of Mr. Duncan's many, many, many public utterances on Stockhouse this monkey is convinced the regulator has to halt this chit and the sooner the better.

We have a fukkin mountain of horsechit that SHOULD and MUST be shared among ALL shareholders, not just the 24/7/365 retards on Stockhouse.

TOTALLY unreal is what this deliberate offense is.


________________________________________________________

The intrepid reporter type from Neer Do Well has confirmed beyond any possible doubt that the main career K9 of Venture promo for complete dopos Canada Carbon Inc. - CCB.v Mr. Robert Bruce Duncan has and continues to post on Stockhouse.

How damn stupido and unbelievable is that exactly? After several generations of Venture scumbaggians NOBODY has ever had the massive ballular appendages to pull this off ... it is THAT grossly contrary to the O&D. (officers and directors exam)
Mr. Duncan's strategy is obvious. He baits the public while dishing up grossly improper disclosure on a nearly daily basis. Spending every waking hour on SH the man then pounces on any possible comment as a personal "threat" and immediate grounds for a corporate lawsuit.

And naturally Mr. Duncan has a multitude of supposed issues in the Supreme Court.
Now that we got the horrid turd dead to rights with rock solid evidence what's next? First off we compare notes with a few other public types to establish Mr. Duncan's bent intent.

Then we put it all in writing and drop it off to the useless tits at the BCSC on Friday. Our expectations are always low dealing with the retards "regulating" securities in B.C. In this particular case however even they will be forced to act. This is just too fukkin much.

Further to the pending written complaint regarding the blatant and outrageous activities of this CEO I have included just a very small sample of the type of material this man is posting on Stockhouse.

He has posted at least 82 times that we know about.

"Behold - Proof

If there was any doubt that there a number of people working in concert one only needs to view the reads of my last 3 posts. At the time of this post theres is 746 in my 7:44 pm post, 525 in my 8:09 pm post and 698 in my 8:25 pm.

As I have always maintained, there are a number of people involved and with all these refreshes it does appear that three or perhaps four people have been noodling away on the refresh key. This is very helpful. On Monday we will be able to ascertain through Stockhouse who were all the identities doing the refresh. Stockhouse has been very helpful in this matter to date as Chubster56/Pirate4 and of course bsmith knows. The extent of all your foolishness never amazes me.

In closing, bsmith despite all of your machinations, deflections and defamations please get your lawyer and some help. Please. Sincerely Read more at http://www.stockhouse.com/companies/bullboard/v.ccb/canada-carbon-inc#avUi4f4dtzUVTQfH.99

Regarding WoolyBullyAll:

On January 19th, 2014 I was the beneficiary of a threatening inbox from WoolyBully. I had responded to that inbox copying my counsel and placed WoolyBully on ignore. This is being dealt with.

Earlier, on January 13th 2014 4:02 pm, WoolyBully inboxed, "I already agreed not to post here until the day you ask me back so whatever your answer here makes no difference how you reply to this. What I propose is to trade in my steak dinner for a truce between you two. I'll talk to TZero/Herman (that is his only 2 id's) and get him to never post on this board again if you give me your word he is no longer a concern or person of interest to you in any manner so long as he never posts on the CCB board again."

WoolyBully's unsolicited inbox proposal of January 13th, 2014 is just another confirnation that TZero/Herman-the-Vulture are the same person. The beneficial owner of these two identities posted multiple times on the CCB board, sometimes within just minutes of each other. What was the purpose of these actions - manipulation.

In closing, WoolyBully I find your continued behavior both inappropriate and actionable.

So that comes from the last half dozen posts or so. What was Robert Bruce Duncan spewing at the public in the many months BEFORE this rubbish? Ultra good question citizen lets take a gander.


RE:RE:RE:RE:RE:options issued @0.25
Chubster56,

My name is Bruce Duncan and I am the CEO of Canada Carbon. What exactly is your complaint? Your ugly innuendos about pump and dumps have crossed the line in our view. If you have an allegation then spit it out. It may help you to know that I have some pretty serious allegations too about you and others who have posted on this board. Since you like forums so much how are you with court rooms big fella?

I find it interesting that all you keyboard cowboys can hide behind your anonymous names and hurt honest shareholders in your wake. Do any of you fully understand the havock you wreak in your so called quest to save shareholders?? Your commentary is nothing more than a lie and I now say enough is enough!

CEO's and the corporations we represent have rights under the law to protect ourselves and the shareholders from people exactly like you. The same people who think that ending their libelous missuves with imo. Let me give you a nickel's worth of free legal advice - these "in my honest opinion" is not an indemity clause. You are still liable.

This garbage ends today. To the shareholders of CCB I am going to do something about this. Let's see how tough all these people really are when we are sitting in the same room as they answer for this egrigious misbehavior. You shareholders have hired me to advanced the corporations projects and protect its assets. It's a sad day that I have to go on Bullboard's to protect this Company from Cubby's obvious and malicious intent to adversly damage the Company

Chubby - you should probably read your in box. You and I plus several others have a date!
