    Treasure Ship Symbol Discovered!

    I found this January 12th.,(John Hancocks Birthday 1733), 1995, along the shores of Sebastian! Amberson Beach Access.
    Tropical Storm Gordon stalled off coast for 3 months sent 19 foot waves to the shore! I figured I would find a coin or artifact, or 'something'!
    In Symbols: An Anchor is equivalent to A Hoard Of Treasure!
    A Circle is equivalent to be In Body Of Water!
    The type of Anchor it is is interesting Note.
    The Vatican. In Rome, Italy, licenced the treasure ships, it is written.
    The Catacombs, In Rome, Italy, Also have an Anchor design, this one?
    Isn't that just like a pirate to try a stunt like this chiseled into stone, as if no one ever would catch on?
    The Stone is of "Carribean Origin", Mel Fishers Archaeologist October 14th., 1995, Mel Fishers Treasure Museum Sebastian, Florida.
    I notice archaeologist knew of a "Sir Rogue", or, "Sir Rock",(papers of archaeologists 1967), and that he had set up a camp at Sebastian.
    “Puerto del Socorro”
    “Old Spanish Harbor,”
    Note: Florida Historical Quarterly, 1942, vol. 21, # 1, pp. 25-39.
    Read Books and they say different things, locations, spelling, and dates. However If I had been around 292 or 313 years ago to explore locally,I would have.
    As for fort sorroquez. It must be the massive structure buried beneath Turtle Mound north of Cape Canaveral, est.1689. Destoyed 1689 by Tekoite.
    Florida Historical Society has a book locked in the safe, I got to read it, it mentions a surruque village, that is all. Historian told me, "There is no fort Sorroquez, made up like Gasparilla the pirate." "The Turtle Mount is thousands of years old". There goes that.

    Re: Treasure Ship Symbol Discovered!

    Hey thank you.
    My Name is Roger .
    I have read the Name Art Hartman before, I think he is a restorer at Mel Fishers Treasure Museum.
    It was Robert Weller's books that lead me to the discovery. He congratulated me on my Find back in 2000.
    Captain Steven Shuph'e once offered me treasure for it, so he could place it in his museum.
    It was recently shown at a Pirate themed Party at the Holiday Inn Oceanfront Resort in October!The party made the Newspaper.
    I shall post more jpg pics within a week. The webcam I used in the above photo is left over from an old computer running the old Windows XP Professonal.
    This is Windows XP x64 Proffesional, and I have to Order a New Special Camera for it.This Operating System does Not use the FAT File system, a, NTS file system is used.
    Details: Amberson Beach Access is the beach access just south of the McClarty Treasure Museum there.Walk four blocks down the beach, and that is where it laid,it's face sticking up out of the sand. I left a bamboo cane pole in it's place, but I am sure it is gone now.15:57 EST January 12th., 1995.
    It weighs Precisely 33 pounds! I don't think I am mistaken when I say ,It Most likely weighed a precise Talent, 52 pounds, when it was laid there 280 years before.
    There is silver oxidation stains on it, the size of 1/2 Royals.

    Anybody that knows the 1715 fleet story really well, knows Art.

    I'd listen closely to anything he has to say-an amazing man.

    Re: Treasure Ship Symbol Discovered!

    Well , I bought the New Camera. The problem now is that it takes pictures,(that are just as bad as the logitech 2000 model), in a higher resolution! Too big of a file to place any 1.
    If you are interested in photo's email me. Sorroque@Yahoo.com .
    Please place in SUBJECT: " SYMBOL " .

    Re: Treasure Ship Symbol Discovered!

    WOULD YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN MORE ABOUT THIS SYMBOL AND WHAT IT MEANS. WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF I FOUND THIS SAME SYMBOL ON A ROCK 400 MILES FROM ANY OCEAN.
    Enthusiasm without " Knowledge " is like running in the Dark !!!

    Re: Treasure Ship Symbol Discovered!

    In the 70's on the Island of Inagua, Bahamas I was shown carvings on a ridge next to a flooded cave. Some of the markings were on stone tablets that looked like they had been recently chiseled out of the rock. Others were on the ridge rock and were smaller, too small to photograph. Transcription is below.

    Also, on another part of the island I was shown this cannon.

    Attached are pics.

    Anyone have knowledge of this location or comments.

    Thanks, Bob

    Re: Treasure Ship Symbol Discovered!

    If you found this symbol 400 miles inland, it would be the same. Treasure in body of water.

    Like I said, I found this while searching sites that were written about in books by proffesionals!
    "Sunken Galleons On Florida Reefs",Robert Weller.
    Robert Weller has been diving since 1921. He wrote "Treasure What Dreams Are Made Of", the life of Mel Fisher.
    Robert Weller was Editor of Treasure Quest Magazine too!
    Read these books! Go find some treasure!
    Note.
    I was chatting with a woman in a laundry that is into metal detecting. I told here of where I found the rock.
    She told me that her friend went quahogging in that Exact place, but in the river and came home with a BUCKET of gold doubloons, with just a rake!
    Now that is a bucket of clam$!
