I know of at least one man who has claimed to have translated the Anthon script. He believes it was taken from the Book of Ether, and it talks about giant waves and such. I don't know enough about the subject matter to know if he is on the mark or not.
I remember seeing a book a while back "Translating the Anthon transcript", which made that claim. The BYU Maxwell institute did a review on it, which they stated:
"I regret to report that Stan Johnson does not know Egyptian. Proof of this can be seen in the first two entries in his symbol reference (see p. 70); here the two "Egyptian" signs Johnson examined turn out to be parentheses from the dictionary Johnson was using. "

[Moderator Note: Just another gentle reminder that discussion, even "vigorous" discussion, is great and welcome. Being that this is a written forum it is sometimes difficult to discern intent, intended meanings, and emotion. There is a fine line between vigorous discussion and argumentation. Let's do our best to stay on the civil discussion side of the line. Disagreement is fine and so is agreeing to disagree. This is not directed at rrosskopf, who is a newcomer and is still learning his way around, it goes for everyone including reminding myself.]
No hard feelings here, and I mean none towards rrosskopf. It's a good discussion, and has given me a good amount to think about. Not convinced, but I appreciate rrosskopf's willingness to back himself up. As with anything, when the information changes, or better evidence is brought to light, I update my conclusions. It is possible I am wrong, and I fully admit that. Rrosskopf has different information and experiences, so it is reasonable that he would come to different conclusions. I don't buy it, but that doesn't make his viewpoint any less valid.
FWIW, if the Anton Manuscript were proven to be authentic... that'd be pretty cool.
