when you search, be sure you've selected to search "HH, cooties, etc" (I forgot the exact label) and noit "Traditionals".
ALso try searching only for part of the name.

Its usually a good idea to note the name and owner of an HH when you find one to help in the search on AQ. Sometimes the # is also noted in the log book.

If this situation happened to me, I would add a little logbook, with the explanation that I couldn't find any oN-line info on it. At least, that way, future finders can stamp in and see where it's been.

You can record your find on "Hat Day" as an unlisted find. If you become a premium AQ member, you can record it now.

For this particular HH, I also could not find any on-line listing on it here or on LbNA. Seems like the last few visitors to the Secret Box did not do an on-line recording of it (Something I can see as a premium member). Some people did log it in as an unlisted find sometime ago. Unfortunately, there is no way to see who recorded the find, when or where they found it, so this HH's past will remain a bit of a mystery.

Here's what came up on a HH search for Elvis:

Thanks to everyone's responses. I do think you're right and that it's just an unlisted HH -- I don't think any of the other HH's labeled "Elvis" are it, from what I've seen. I like the suggestion of adding a logbook to it, so it'll at least have some info with it now. Thanks again :)

Have you checked on Letterboxing.org? It might be listed there and not on AQ.

It's a long shot, but you could try contacting the last few finders of the box you found the HH in. One of them might know.
