    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Length, bore diameters, any numbers on the end of the trunnions and marine history of the area where found might help.

    Just watched the video, and I can say WOW! What lays below is what any hunter would be dreaming of day and night. Congrats to ever recovered them.

    Yeah, good job!
    Mapping the place, before Salvage...? Or leaving the site alone, but
    wanting to know the identity of the wreck...?
    I'm sure someone will help - there is a
    lot of experience, out there in our members...!

    WOW. 2? Those are beautiful. Somebody here will know..
    Would you mind if this Joe guy and I over loaded one to see if he can find it all again and put it back together? He is getting very good at that.

    The detail of the decoration - the trefoil with loops - is found on cannon dating from the late 15th up to the first decades in the 16th century. it is not restricted to a country- you find it on French, Spanish, Flemish, Portuguese guns.

    Found video on you-tube. Searched 'TinPot WreckDetective'. Comments are turned off. Link just won't post so if you get on you-tube and type in 'TinPot WreckDetective' his videos come up.

    EDIT: went thru videos and looks like southern England. Drysuits, 1/2 way warm as no gloves sometimes, diving big RIB, one wreck is Robert Ingham and found it in wreck data-base. Sure would like to have some demensions/weight of the cannons.

    Great find.

    Is it just me or do they look like they are on the smaller side?
