Occasionally people recognize members of the cast of “The Curse.” That happens often to Daryl when he wears his trademark hat. “I get recognized lots. I guess they think I am evil so they follow me around, and point. Or they stare at me at intersections. The strangest was when I came out of London Drugs one day. A security guard was standing by my truck. 'I know who you are,' he said, 'I thought I would guard your truck while you were shopping.' ‘Thanks,' I said. As I drove away he waved, and I waved back."

In episode 3 of “The Curse of the Frozen Gold” Daryl is pleased to establish the existence in San Francisco of the Bank of British North America. At this Canadian bank the legendary “Jackson" would have deposited his wealth, including those nuggets as large as walnuts.
The building that housed the bank burned down in 1906. With that all records went up in flames that could have shown if “Jackson” was there or not.
“Jackson” was most likely never there. Why would he, an American, have deposited his loot in a Canadian bank in San Francisco? The name Bank of British North America was only added to the story in 1939 by a creative Canadian journalist and a helpful Canadian prospector.

No specific bank is mentioned in any of the versions of the "Jackson letter” or other publications before the article of 1939.
