    Two Gold Crowns and Some Shipwrecks (picture heavy)

    There are many old abandoned ship yards not too far from where I live. Went to one today at low tide and found a bunch of cool stuff, also got some awesome pictures too.

    Do pill bottles beep? They do when they're filled with gold! Found a beeping pill bottle on the beach near an abandoned shipyard and when I shook it I heard something rattling around inside. Opened the bottle and discovered a broken dental piece with two gold crowns and gold bridge!

    Also scored some other neat treasures (pretty sure the red glass net buoy is a reproduction):

    There were several large bricks of Copper Ore, took as many as I could carry. Probably the remains of a once thriving industry that's now gone.

    At low tide many sunken boats and shipwrecks become accessible:

    Possibly a relic from Sandy, this boat still has its two Evinrude outboards. A decade ago they would've been taken immediately by scavengers:

    Word of advice...

    Dental gold is usually of higher karat...
    18, 20 and 22 are common... be aware of shiesty test.

    Nice finds! If it were me, I would be all over those Evinrude motors as they could bring a pretty penny or two. Also, I would scavenge as much recyclable metal as I could haul out. The Cabin Cruiser and some of the Barges likely have some usable engine parts that you could get good money from. You have not only found a great place to metal detect but I also bet that a lot of folks would even thank you for removing some of the debris which would go a long way in helping clean up the area. With the right equipment, you could possibly even get a cleanup contract and make some really good dough.
