    DONT KNOW IF IT WAS DONE BEFORE - Post your unusual or unexpected beach/water find

    This was one of mine - was hitting a saltwater beach in Rhode Island
    was finding a few pieces of gold & silver jewelry - coins from the early 1900's on up
    I found a few musketballs and a silver colonial button - and then came up with this -

    it's a colonial shoe buckle - 1700's
    when I first found it - I thought nothing of it
    and just dropped it in my pouch - did not realize
    what I had till I got home - it was certainly an unexpected find
    research told me that the British were encamped all around this area

    Nice! I see it is black do you think it is silver? And are you going to try to clean it?

    Very strange....on my local beach. I think it came from sand that was brought in to make a small berm.

    Move over, Indiana Jones..I found the Holy Grail!


    Must have been a boat party out there , but only found this one cup.

    Sound nearly blew off the headphones, and there it was, a bit of cup top laying in the mud. I thought it was part of a bracelet until I pulled it out.

    I believe it's silver plated..it will enhance my spoon collection

    I scooped a hypodermic needle just this morning. I don't have pics as I threw it in the trash. There was no way, it was going in my pouch. Carried the needle in my scoop to the trash and ditched it. Ruined my appetite to hunt for the remainder of today.

    King Arthur would be proud. In my book, it's a banner find.
