    Does Coral beep? yes, when its full of coins!!!

    Could'nt work out why this lump of coral (in 2 ft of water) at the beach kept "hitting"?

    brought it home and it started to fall apart in my bag - WOW!!!

    just need to identify them and work out how to save / clean them

    any ideas

    thanks!!

    It's OK to be disappointed AFTER you dug it - as long as you never forget; that BEFORE you dug it, it had the POTENTIAL to be life changing!

    Wow, nice find. Please let us know what they are when you crack them open? If they are silver, which I think they are then it wont hurt them to be opened up. They may need a short burst of electrolysis if the have been in the drink for hundreds of years.
    Keep us posted.

    Holy smokestacks!!

    Before doing anymore cleaning, you might want to wait for a few preservation tips from
    some TNet members. . . (I know, waiting can be a difficult thing to do LOL)

    Watercolor got it right - PLEASE wait until you have the info you need to confidently separate/clean these coins - the info will be
    forthcoming , there are plenty of veteran underwater hunters who know what to do here !
