This sounds like the beginning of an adventure novella or novelette. Or maybe the first volume of a trilogy! Maybe it was your dad’s “go bag”, or his apocalypse bug-out emergency stash, or something? Does it include evidence he was planning to also take his family with him? Are you rich now?
If this is fiction, I wanna read the next installment!
If it’s real life, what are your theories? Who else among your dad’s family and acquaintances have you asked? And how do you feel about this?
(PS Sorry if it seems I’m asking questions you’ve already answered!)

Most of this makes sense. Weed for managing the pain of his fibromyalgia and cancer, gems and metal for investment purposes, guns for protection and investment (and I actually helped him make the deals for some of the guns). He never told me about the elephant ivory, though, and the sheer amount of everything is surprising.
I haven't talked to the rest of the family about his personal possessions. I gave my mother an assessment of what was going on; apart from that, I've just been doing research on the history of the various gun models. I haven't asked anyone about the numbers and cards from Florida. I don't think that anyone in the family would know. I'll ask his old friend in a couple of weeks, after I've gotten the rest sorted out.
