    Shipwreck Personal Items

    Yesterday & today I located a spot that was on my bucket list. Finally got the chance to get there with the minus tides... At first I found just a few coins here and there, but that all changed when I found a pewter spoon, and a silver handle to another object? Then a musket ball, then 2, then 3, wow they were all over the area. Mostly drops... Sometimes there were 2 of them in each hole. This got me to thinking, there must have been a bag or something holding them together at one time?.... I found 2 Large Cents... One was dated 1799, unfortunately it crumbled away to almost nothing, all I did was rinse it under water... That's what happens when in the mud for over 2 hundred years... I found 3 lead flat buttons and 1 brass button... Quite a few lead pieces that I think may have been used for a seighn net?... If anyone knows for sure let me know... I would really like to date this wreck. I also located the keil to the ship up high in the sand...A padlock and a sterling wine cork stopper... I also had a sight find, it was this beautiful octagon shaped bottle without a flaw on it anywhere... It stands about 12 inches high... Anyone know anything about what I have?... It's still corked, and seems to have some seeds or something in it.. Can't wait to see what the other Large cent looks like. I should also say that all these items were in a very small area, maybe a 50 x 50 spot. Happy Hunting and if anyone knows what I have, give me jingle... Click image for larger version.

    You might have better luck dating the lock. Just type in pictures of late 1700s to early 1800s locks on line and see if you can locate it. If there is some kind of makers mark it would also narrow the search.

    Thanks Jim, It has been narrowed down somewhere around 1860 's or so. One person said they found one just like it at a camp from the 1700's... I just saw that these have been salvaged off the S.S. Republic a few years ago with contents in them also... I am on cloud nine buddy.... Happy New Year
