    Well I'm back to the conclusion that my treasure rings are nothing more than cheap 1970s hippie rings. How ever they got there I'll never no, but can't find any like that from the time period. Did find several close matches from the 70s. My treasure infected mind wanted to believe so bad !! Oh well I apologize for my ignorance. I'm taking them out of my Spanish collection, and throwing them in the junk jewlrey box. Must have been some hippies camping right on top of my cobb spot. Little embarrassing to say the least. Oooooops !!!

    Great work, surprised those make their way onshore inside the reef. They are pretty light aren't they? Makes me wonder on our steeper beaches if they work up higher into the dry sand after storms. What do you think? Thx.

    These coins are coming down from the dune when the king tides and weather erode the beach. Many of the wrecks are relatively close to shore here. The survivors came ashore in clusters here and there up and down the keys and formed camps. This is one of those survivor/salvage camp spots. The shoreline and beaches here in the keys are very different from the beaches of the 1715 fleet. When the tide is very low here the beach may dry for a 1/4 mile out to sea, and then return on a strong spring or king tide and over wash the beach and flood streets and homes. These recent coins were found about 6 inches down with just a light layer of sand over course shell layer with some marl or clay. Very hard to dig. At the bottom of this layer was a thin layer of sand and shell cemented together and resembling peanut brittle. This is a great sign, and when the lighter sand thins over this layer the coins are found here stuck and unable to sink any further. If they make it through this layer they will eventually settle on coral rock bottom here. I've found some deep down in potholes in the rock bottom too.

    I love hearing that crunch, tells me treasure is in the mix. But this is only at a few selected beach's here, others have there little secret matrix combo's to watch for.

    Long key park had 2 salvage camps one on each end. Coins have been found at the south end of long key close to and under the bridge. Coins have been found at conch key, little conch, grassy key, channel key, and at Sawyer key by the boy scout camp. Dont forget bahia Honda too. By far the richest hunting is at key west, both modern and old. Think outside the box down here, most spots are hard to get to and require a boat or at the least a kyak. Once you know where to start looking youll be able to get the permissions needed to access the better spots. Both the spanish and fresh drops can happen at any moment on any shoreline down here you just never know. It's not your typical beach hunting though, it can be rough terrain and not to much sandy beaches.
