    AND!
    That they sell for $1000-$2000 each! depending on condition?

    Hockeystar23:
    I'm afraid that I can't reveal the location!
    The primary reason is:
    If you get CAUGHT!
    I can/could be held legally, responsible, for telling you!
    But!
    If you come down sometime, we could cruise down this beach that I JUST! Happen. know of....!!

    Hey new to the site love it. Was looking for a new hobby and this looks like the one. I live in Ingleside Tx. next to C.C. and would like to know when you are coming down maybe join in. Are the coins you are talking about maybe from the 4 or 5 Spanish ships that went down in the 1500's.
