A 1940’s Era dress, hung in style on a big large mansion. For 82 years this was a treasure.

For Sherloq the dress wasn’t the treasure, but the secret it held. A small silver thread under the collar, 100 year old currency with a missing thread.

The clues matched precisely, this was a treasure that never reached the right person.

Sherloq found where the map is, the button is the direction, but the button was not there. After browsing thousands of museums found the button.

Sherloq began his solitary journey, he believed he was the only one, he isn’t.
