    Fantastic Bart, makes me wish I had spent more time hunting and the equipment was better when I lived there during the 80's. Great job!

    Thanks steve.....the secret is the wrecks held very little treasure for modern salvors. Every one and there mother have been out there looking around those wrecks. The spanish brought all the treasure to the salvage camps on the beach. There was 12 million pesos of registered treasure on board these ships. That means that this treasure had to be dove up and loaded on boats and then brought to the camps each day. How do you unload a boat on the primitive beaches of the keys. The small boats loaded with treasure would have had to unload in waist deep water and walk these heavy loads to shore. Sometimes this may have been more than 100 yards to walk the heavy crates of silver to the beach. Anyone who has tried to walk a cross the flats knows that you will sink to your knees in the muck. The treasure is in the shallows where they loaded and unloaded this treasure.....basically I'm working the treasure spills from this salvage work. After they salvaged much more than was listed these spills and smuggled stashes of silver were left where they lay....for guys like us to find. So....the treasure is in and around the beaches and camps where these survivors and salvors came ashore. 1 or 2 broken open chests and sacks and there are hundreds of lost cobbs every time it happened. It had to be a struggle to get these treasures ashore by the means used in 1733-34. There were no docks !!

    Sheild side is clean but that stain on the date side is stubborn I'll have to take the coin back to white and let it re patina....the iron protected it more here and it's a bit thicker there. This is not a specimen coin from some other major collectors collection....this is a piece of sea salvaged treasure that would be best mounted in bright condition !! This coin has the provenance of the entire 1733 disaster story I gave a link to in my first post......its an awsome historical narrative ( true story) !!

    Gee, why was I so disappointed when the Treasure Hunters Rendevous was cancelled due to the virus? Simply cannot wait until I do manage to get to Barts part of the coast and try my luck.

    The coin you found is not to be viewed as awesome or banner worthy.

    It is far above and beyond that !!

    My banner vote is in also.

    Nice find!
