    Re: LOST FRIGATE TREASURE

    There won't be any news in the Winter time or Spring either. I doubt anything new will come from this area. It has been known for ages and nothing has ever been found. It is a rough area to search and as I said before, the State would likely take it over and you would get nothing.

    If you don't hear anything about it in the news on TV or newspapers, then it means no one has found anything. At least anyone would know better than to say they did, or the state would step in and claim it.

    Re: LOST FRIGATE TREASURE

    Sorry about the lateness of this post. I don't think I joined TNet until long after it was started.

    Have several citations for sources of this lead if anyone is interested:

    Guide to Sunken Ships in American Waters, p. 18
    Penfield's Directory to Buried and Sunken Treasure, p. 49
    Lost Treasure, August, 1978, p. 45
    Gold, Summer, 1977, p. 51
    Terry's Treasure Map Atlas, p. 47
    Treasure, August 1981, p. 20

    I also have listed a Spanish Galleon wrecked in 1753 (a year later than the San Jose) which might, in fact be the same shipwreck reference:

    Lost, Buried or Sunken Treasures, p. 184
    Penfield's Directory to Buried and Sunken Treasure, p. 49
    Lost Treasure, August, 1978, p. 45
    Terry's Treasure Map Atlas, p. 47
    Lost Treasure, March, 1979, p. 23
    Guide to Lost Treasures, p. 42

    Part of what makes searching for data difficult is the sheer numbers of treasures reported anywhere. Blackbeard is said to have a treasure cache in New Haven also, reported in Lost Treasure, March, 1979, page 23. This seems almost counterindicated. Captain Kidd is the pirate most frequently associated with caches in CT: at Charles Is., Connanicut Is., Goose Is., Lyme, Middletown, Milford, Money Is., Pilot Is., Stratford Point, Thimble Isles, Weathersfield, and very likely other places in CT as I didn't start adding locations until after I had far too many citations for individual caches to be likely.

    Coins have been found at Pilot Island, according to an article in Lost Treasure from April, 1976, p. 54. Supposedly a pirate cache was located on Penfield Reef, cited in Lost Treasure, March, 1979, p. 23. A gold coin cache was also found in CT at Salisbury, reported in Lost Buried and Sunken Treasure, p. 180; as well as Treasure, January 1979, p. 42.

    I believe if the story is true, that by now, some of the coins were made it to the beaches, and found.

    Have you ever been diving in Long Island Sound? I have.....the visibility is about zero to 2 feet. There is literally tons of junk and debris in the sound, sunken barges, pleasure boats and garbage that was dumped there for years. The bottom goes from fields of debris to sand to mud that is feet deep. If you get stuck in this you're a goner. Good Luck finding anything in that mess!
