    That sand berm in the middle is good treasure bearing material.....it will be sealed off from detecting until mother nature says different !! Locked under a carpet of brick. Workers have been great to us....giving us every chance possible to get some spanish treasure !! Today when I got to work everyone looked at me and said what are you doing here....you should be treasure hunting while you can....so I left work at noon and was at the spot hunting all afternoon !! So glad to have the support from my boss....hurry up and get down there and get some treasure is all he said !! Happy hunting folks !!

    No marks...silver ring....2 feet from cobb....simple design. This all leads me to believe its treasure wreck related. I could be wrong but I've never seen an un marked silver ring in today's day and age....if it ain't marked 925...its usally not silver.

    Wow....its cleaning up great !!Click image for larger version.

    Wow !!.....im almost certain that after looking through my other finds, that I also found a small silver treasure ring....its broken and bent and unmarked....its definitely silver and it was only a foot or 2 from the cobb !! I'll take a pic....it might be pretty special !!

    Wow! Too bad you can't get another banner for six months! Is this near a shipwreck site or something else?

    EDIT: I just saw Keyshunter's comment.

    Thats exactly it keyshunter....the description in the archives is that the entire beach was covered in personal luggage and gifts !! This little ring is similar to one I saw recovered from here before. Everyone and there mother got coins off this beach....not much will make it past this project !! I've also read the top deck sheared away and came scudding on in to this beach at some point !!

    Follow one of the trucks out and see where they are taking the sand. Or ask one of the drivers.

    Absolutely incredible! I can hear the tires squealing as people head to the keys! This is a wonderful thing, between you and Mark, the workers, your boss - everyone working together is unheard of. Well done Blak Bart! Just incredible.....
