    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    Love this thread and love finding those discarded treasures and stories of the same. Some absolutely stunning examples of great finds.

    The value of my best find has yet to be determined but has to be the dozen or so nautical maps, declassified military computer printouts and such I found 3 years ago collected by a local military Col. They were in a box with a hand-drawn set of plans, which is why I actually grabbed the box. Someone evidently bought a home and threw all this info away.

    I live at ground zero for the 1715 Fleet, so it got my attention (the latest date on the material was 1972). One of the maps had seven(?) hand-drawn, colored keys drawn on it and it went from the Amelia Island area of Florida to the Campeche Peninsula of southern Mexico. The map is scattered with hand made notes. Lots of fishing-related notes, snapper reefs, trawler snags, sunken ship references as well. The only thing missing is a red "X" marking the pirate treasure.

    Maybe with time and patience, the answer will present itself as to its value.

    Hi All,
    Last year I took out the trash at my brother-in-laws apartment and I thought, "go ahead, take a peek". I found 300 Chinese rap cds, all in binders. I hate rap music, and don't speak Chinese. I do sell on 3-bay and made a nice stash selling them. This is a great thread. Happy hunting all, never dive head first.
