Just found this in a swim area with lifeguards and a few hundred gold donors around me while I was wading. I left a 2"deep X 4' wide depression searching for the chain with no luck.

Nice. I have found several of the inset piece on the medallion but never a complete piece. I do hope you filled in that trough you dug searching for the chain.

The 2 inch deep depression in 3 1/2 foot of ocean? Nope, left it that way. Im pretty sure its not a trip hazard.
