    I found the first hurricane Dorian treasure coin, 1733 fleet !!

    And the storm hasn't even hit yet. Got an early start on this hurricane prep and was just standing by. As the storm is approaching it has made the winds switch off shore for the last 3 days here in the keys. That offshore breeze and the king tides have swept all the seaweed out to sea and left the beaches and shoreline clean. Got to my spot at full king high tide.....no beach had to jump off the sea wall and snorkel in 2 1/2 feet of water. Got a strong 33 on the nox....but it was coming from the bottom of an old lobster trap so I started to move on......I didnt get 4 feet away before that 33 didn't make sense to me. I went back and spent about 10 minutes fanning and prying this trap bottom out of the sand. Sure enough that 33 was still registering with the trap moved. Fanned the remaining sand down to cap rock and bingo....a big fat 8 reale cobb from the 1733 fleet !!! Click image for larger version.

    I'm slowly cleaning her up but I dont see a complete date.....shes seen better days. 286 years in the sand and we'd all look a little weathered !! Click image for larger version.

    Here she is just after finding on the hood of my truck. So I had to break and catch my breath I ate lunch and called my buddies.....i find it hard to hunt after i make a good find until i thoroughly fondle and inspect the piece. So after a 45 minute break i hunted the rest of the day until the tide was a quarter mile out.....no more spanish, only clad and trash. Click image for larger version.

    Shes got some detail left and will continue to clean up better....very little encrustation on this one....she must have tumbled in the sand a bit....she was pretty clean. She looks alot like one of her sisters I ware for luck. Click image for larger version.

    I'm going back to the beach before dawn. No rip tides here, but it should be fun. I don't go in the water. About this time of year I switch from Indian Artifact collecting to the beach to clean up after the tourists leave. After Nov. 1 it's back for relics in the woods. Rinse, repeat!

    1733 Spanish Galleon Trail - Fleet of 1733 for those who have not herd about the 1733 fleet....this gives a little background on this coin. It was found at one of the mentioned survivor/salvage camp beach sites.

    Fantastic find, again! I'm always happy when I see you post some Spanish silver! I'll try the east coast beaches after Dorian and see if I can't get my second (or third, or fourth....). Great work and congratulations!
