This Should be in a Museum!
Panama Hat hired a gang of men led by Fedora to dig in the caves. In 1912, two Scouts, a young Indiana Jones and his friend Herman, stumbled upon the gang's looting and observed their discovery of the Cross in the caves. Recognizing the Artifact, and holding a firm belief that it belonged in a museum, Jones sent Herman to get help while he attempted to seize the Cross out from under Fedora's men. However, Jones was caught in the act and chased back to his home. Although Herman brought the Sheriff, the lawman saw to it that the Cross was returned to Panama Hat.
The Cross Of Coronado was a Jewel-Encrusted Golden Crucifix with a Chain; named for Spanish explorer Francisco Vásquez de Coronado. It was originally commissioned by Emperor Justinian II and was believed to contain a Piece of the Cross upon which Jesus Christ was Crucified. The Inscription on the back was also nearly identical to that of the Crux Vaticana which predates it. In 1520, the Spanish conquistador, Hernando Cortés gave the Cross to Francisco Vásquez de Coronado and sent him in search of the Seven Cities of Gold but Coronado lost it during his ultimately futile quest for treasure.
