    Silver in conglomerate......bahamas with the EQX

    Been hunting the bahamas for relics and hit some fused conglomerate from an old house that burnt and fell into the sea....I've found some good stuff over the years here from time to time but I've always been looking for the rumored silverware here !! Well I've finally started to find some after a couple years of poking around. Today I got a heavy ladle handle in silver along with a large conglomerate that has a silver spoon bowl and a mystery piece of inscribed silver !! The pictured pieces are only a few of what I found but have definitely got silver locked inside Click image for larger version.

    Here's some of the iron trash we cleared away to get to the heavy (silver)layer today !! Check out the video.....the nox is a beast at looking through the iron !! There's more there.....I wanted to dig more but to be honest I cut my finger on glass while digging and had to stop !! Happy hunting everyone and good luck.

    Yup....its been fun so far.....the boss came out to dig with me yesterday for a bit. When the weather won't let us fish everyone wants to come on my adventures with me. I was digging for an hour and then the whole crew came to dig with me and hang out. It's hard to believe I'm on a working trip sometimes !! I'm sure not gonna sit in the house and watch a movie because it's to windy to fish.....life is to short to watch movies when your in the bahamas....I can do that back at home in the U.S. I'm trying to seize every minute I can for my passions.....all my co workers know that I'll have something planned for every minute of free time I get. That attitude and passion is catchy and I love to get people inspired to do things they normally wouldn't be doing. Everyone had a blast and I did my job and kept everyone entertained on a day when it was to windy to fish or use the boat. Woooo hoooo....its better in the bahamas like the commercial says !!

    Here is the other side with the quote and hallmarks. I have no idea what the purpose of this silver item was used for.....perhaps a book mark or something ?? But it's a great little silver relic and I'm happy to have found it !!

    Very interesting! I would think there is enough info on the piece to find out exactly what it is and where it may have come from?

    Thanks georgivs !!

    EQ8....I'm sure once I get my search wording right I'll get some results....silver hamlet figure with quote got me nothing close. I've got to get working on the clumps and see what's in there next...had to work on the boat today, so I'll try and free up that spoon bowl next.

    You MIGHT be able to clean up the hallmarks enough to find them at 925-1000 dot com.
    Those picture marks can be really tough though.
    Best of luck finding out what it is!!
