    I almost passed it up with the trap bottom over it....trap nails buried in wood don't ring a 33 on the nox though. Right in the middle of the trap too....no hardware there. Glad I use to commercial lobster fish....no possible way for a trap to ring up like that. Shes cleaning up nice....I can see a faint 173... and I'm pretty sure an OMF mint mark.

    Awesome find! May I ask on which beach you found that bad boy? I'm looking forward to reading about more finds once Dorian makes landfall on the Treasure Coast.

    Wish I was there as well ... I'm heading to Florida in a couple of weeks so I hope there will be another major hurricane around that time that washes up Spanish coins on the beaches!

    One question though: You mentioned that you were snorkling to get that coin. Isn't metal detecting inside the water usually a no-no on the Treasure Coast? Or is it allowed during high tide as long as you don't get past the low tide mark?

    Very nice Bart !
    It has taken awhile, but I think others have finally taken you seriously.
    And you still have a lot of searches left in you as well as a lot of places yet to be searched.
    You are doing us PROUD

    Hi In my part of the world the coast line is constantly changing except where there is man made breaks and tidal rock structures. Seen photos from 80 years and the area is so different. The shore line is hundreds of yards away .TP

    Boy...you guys use some pretty fancy bait in your lobster traps down in Florida...I used to load mine up with rotting cod fish heads...
    Congrats on a ridiculously amazing find! Once the storm passes, I hope you load up on some more authentic Spanish treasure! Cheers!

    I'm actually all the way down in the florida keys, not the treasure coast. This coin comes from another fleet of galleons that sank 18 years after the 1715 fleet. This fleet sank in 1733 and the keys was where modern treasure salvage began with characters like art McKee, marty meylach, and many others from the 1960s. At this spot I've never had a problem snorkeling since the closest wreck is more than 2 miles away and I'm not in any state or federal parks. Gold collector I hope you find one too when you make it down.
    Good luck and happy hunting.
