Found these on Delaware shore . Seems like I finally hit on some artifacts after many hours beach hunting in the last 2 years. Hundreds of ship wrecks offshore and so few actual targets. Happy for now , but still looking for those coins to go along with them.

Wow man...

You just found a piece(s) of a shipwreck.

Well done.
Phenom find.

IF I were YOU... I would live at that area day in day out.
Work it like your being payed...

Very nice recovery. I personally refer to such finds as character pieces, as I feel them to be more than just your run-of-the-mill with no soul, so to speak.

Unfortunately wood and coins have different set and drift patterns. BUT it seems you're primed for some great finds. I've piloted a lot of ships on the Delaware and its lodes with history. Good luck!
