    Marty is being conservative for sure. What puzzles me is to "Why" would a treasure hunter approach another treasure hunter for funding ?
    I liked Marty's response when they called him to tell him about their finds. It was as if he wanted to brag about finding a silver coin. Especially when he said to Marty, I don't want to tell you I told you so, but I did find a silver coin, which Rick promptly replied, you promised me gold and this isn't gold, ( or something along that line of wording ).

    some of us would probably still wonder if it was Faked.

    But Evidence of the cache actually Existing Would be there

    Already starting off on shaky ground. Heck of a way to kick off a "New" series.

    I agree with you total. Good hunting and good luck.

    The caption under the picture says: "Kevin Dykstra and Frederick J. Monroe think they have discovered a boat containg $2million worth of Confederate gold stolen after the Civil War in this ship that popped up on their Sonar in Lake Michigan. "

    Story goes it was in a rail car, yet 2015 they believe they found it in a boat.
    So which is it ? Gold on a boat or Gold in a rail car ?
    Instead of approaching Rick Lagina as an investor, maybe they should contact Tommy Thompson ?

    hahaha, what a horrible story. And thats how they started this series? I think a junior-high AV class could write a better script.

    The Confederacy did not produce many coins but a whole lot of paper money, as well as each CSA State printing its own bills.
    The majority of the gold and silver coins in the CSA treasury were United States, British, French, and Mexican.

    Not a coin but a medal and the one in this link is possibly the only un-holed one in existence. Man that Gary Drayton is something....

    I'm guessing that most of the even halfway serious metal detectorists on this website are much better than their "metal detection expert" Gary Drayton. I think that anyone who is allowed to metal detect at such famous sites because of their fame, and uses one of the best metal detectorists on the market will probably find some pretty good finds. I noticed Gary Drayton was holding the coil around 4 inches above the ground on multiple occasions, while swinging the metal detector in half circle swings. Those are things most metal detectorists learn not to do shortly after starting metal detecting.
