Hi guys, I am offering my solution for Image 9, Verse 5. I know everyone believes this casque is located in Montreal but I will attempt to convince you that it is located in Philadelphia. First of all I think it contains the coordinates for Philadelphia although the 39 is somewhat hard to read. The entire image is setup to look like a portrait so I believe art is a clue in the overall image. Because it is a portrait the map normally located in the lower left is missing or moved. All the clues are located in the center of the image. I believe the key image to direct you where to begin your search is the leg-eater image (dragon head/horse leg image). I also believe this image has double duty but will deal with the first part first. I believe the key image represents the St. George and the Dragon statue located on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd 2 miles north of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. If you start the search there at the statue the first clue is "Lane". Lane as a road, usually refers to a country setting, which is what you will find at the statue. I will admit the the second clue is a little troublesome but I think one of the "twos" is referring to the distance to the Museum. I personally don't believe you have to fully solve every clue to find the casque. The 3rd clue, "you'll see an arc of lights". About a half mile south of the statue you will pass a high wall on the right side of the road. The wall follows the curve of the road creating a long arc. the top of the wall is lined with lights effectively creating an "arc of lights". At the approximate 2 mile mark you will pass in front of the Museum. This is where all the remaining clues can be addressed. See attached.
