    That is a beauty Bart and is cleaning up nicely I already voted "banner" on your original post, but just in case the "banner votes" are calculated when posted on a thread dedicated to that item, I am submitting "banner" and the moderators can take it from there.

    And here you felt you were being WATCHED ............now you have good reason to feel that.

    Just be careful and safe buddy .

    I voted banner too right after my post. Hard to believe that one wouldn't be considered.

    A banner vote for sure! That's worthy of a banner if ever I saw one. Terrific find. Congratulations Blak Bart. Stay the course, there's more out there.

    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!

    Thank you RJGMC.....it is quite an honor to recover it, and one heck of a piece of history !! Good luck and happy hunting RJGMC !!

    Wooo hoooo simon.....I'm so excited....thank you for the vote my friend !! There could be more my friend....so far for me this has been a great year, even with all this covid 19 really messing up my hunting !! I havnt got out as much but the hunts have been more productive. Looks like I'll be heading back to the bahamas shortly and recovering our gear and finds from my pre quarantine adventures. One thing is for certain...the big chunks of fused conglomerate have produced silver for me like no other time before...didnt matter if found these rusty chunks in the bahamas or at home here in the keys...these chunks have been great and I will continue to search them out !! Wooo hooo simon I'm a happy man !!

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 !!
    Makes sense, keys beaches are not your typical sandy beach

    Steve that's another big factor....I love those ugly rocky shore lines. I tend to avoid the deep sand and grass beds and hunt over shallow sand and rock with fans and soft corals....at least I can recover something in this bottom quickly without having to dig 2 feet for deep beer cans. Recovery times are quicker and I can cover more bottom. So I'm religous with the sat imaging....always searching for changing bottom conditions. When the bottom changes over a couple months and we go from deep sand and grass to the scrubby hard pan bottom I'm all over it. The sand shifts seasonally and can cover good spots in a short time with 2-3 feet of new sand just as quick as it uncovers. I need a storm...just not a cat 4 + !! Steve I want to come up and sift for the emeralds soon. I'll PM you when I come up !!
