    OBN- I don't think they carried copper, but there were three different shipwrecks on that beach. Both of the others were earlier than the Faithful Steward. Keep the copper piece. It's cool. Did you get any of the coins? They are still hard to get.

    Thanks for the info, I'm impressed with your knowledge of the history of the area, I'm not much of a ship wreck or Relic huntering. I did enjoy the spot, And your post. Did find a few strange things, But here are the small items...And I'm sure only a few may have came from the wreck..Not sure about the silver ring, but never seen one like it before. The sterling fork could have been, whats left. And the coin needs cleaned, looks like a copper from the little details, and last the oval shaped stone has a cross on it, but faint. I also found a larger piece of slate, looks craved but will have to post a pic over on the what is it forum. Being a gold hunter I never thought I would ever bring home some of the things I did....guess I got the fever....for 3 hours.

    Coin looks right. It's a tough place to hunt, lots of trash and not a lot of old stuff. There's modern coins there too.

    You don't see too many people eyeball finding gold coins. Really cool. Nice recovery. I'd love to see what the 'hours eyeball hunting per gold coin found' ratio is? Somthing tells one in a million isn't even in the right ball park

    I still think it was all a dream. Probably unrepeatable-ever. I went there quite a few times before I found anything old. It's not easy. Even after Sandy I didn't get anything, although I was told other people did. It's a tough place to hunt.

    Banner for sure! The ocean is an awsome thing. One day you have tons of targets, the next, no targets but tons of shells and sea glass, the next, nothing. Thats what I love about beach hunting, it is always changing! That, and it is easy diggin!

    Beautiful gold! With that beach action mysteriously shifting coins & shells, I'd be tempted to camp out nearby to be the "early bird" each day! My best & oldest coin so far, a 1923 Peace silver dollar, was also an eyeball surface find -- in my case, flat on top of an old field we'd detected several times before. It looked like a dusty old poker chip, and I nearly didn't bend down for a closer look. Doesn't compare to your old golden coin, but both show that eyeball finds can be awesome! HH Andi
