    That beach makes no sense to me. Thursday it's almost no targets. Friday lots of targets in the exact same spots I went over before. Saturday few targets but the coin is on the top of the ground and the copper is 3" down. Thursday and Friday tons of great shells, I'll get some pics of them too, Saturday they were gone. No exceptional tides, no storms. Just a shower type rain, It would not have washed off inches of sand.

    Here is a pic of something maybe you can help me with. It is a broken teacup found in the trash line of the beach. It's very light weight, so I'm thinking creamware. Its been molded, but hand painted and glazed. Look at the inside and notice the unevenness of the glaze. Also notice the casting flaw in the foot. I think it's 18th century creamware.

    Hmm, I know where that beach is I was there the weekend after Christmas, but it was far too windy to really enjoy the day.

    I'll be heading back this summer, probably over the 4th of July. You live nearby? Maybe I'll hit you up before we go.

    I'm not real close, but can certainly meet up. If it's above freezing, I'm going Saturday. I think winter is going to be the best time of year. There are a few people out there, but just in the last few weeks, I have gotten more in the last 4 weeks than in the last 5 months or so, when I first started going.

    So real nice treasure and a Very Good Story.

    Question for you, was the "Faithful Steward" carring copper also...stopped by CB Monday and seen some nice erosion, So I pulled the detector out and spent 3 hours looking for Gold....found a few goodies but also one large chunk of copper...maybe 3 pounds or more. also how would you recommend cleaning a old copper.

    In the beginning, you said "read on, you won't be dissappointed". You were right. I loved the entire story. It really moved me that you were able to connect the coins/ button you found with the people that were lost in that tragedy at sea that was so long ago. Its like those lives can now be remembered one more time. I know you'll treasure those finds. Amazing hunt, banner in my book. Thanks for posting.

    Guys, remember, anytime we dig a shipwreck site, we're "trespassing" on a cemetery. Take out your trash, fill your holes. Remember. Same thing goes for battlefields and campsites. It's not just about finding "stuff". "Stuff" comes and stuff goes. Ever see a funeral procession with a Uhaul? It's the history behind the stuff that is important, the real live people behind that history and the perservation of our history, and the artifacts from it that are important. I did my family research at my mother's request, years ago. She was delighted with the results. She was able to join the Daughters of the American Revolution and was a member till the day she died. We had about 8 ancestors who served in the Revolution. Several cousins became President, one of those Presidents, James Earl Carter, is still here. Two cousins are famous actors and filmmakers. One was a world renown biochemist. We've been shop owners, shoemakers, farmers, "gentlemen" farmers, bankers, congressmen, judges, ministers, artists, soldiers, airmen, sailors, architects and just plain moms and dads. I have stood on the property in Virginia where my family first set foot in this land in 1657, and showed my daughter some three and half centuries later the exact spot. "Treasure Hunting" is fun, but don't cheat yourself out of the big picture.
