Outstanding Civil War era finds. Rare indeed especially in that condition. Banner worthy indeed.

You stepped up your game immensely you?ve been showing some true treasure. And I have to met you did it you just didn?t talk about it you researched you learned how to dive you got certified, you bought the boat you worked on it to get it where you needed it to do what you doing and hard work pays off. You?re a lucky man and the harder you work the luckier you get and it shows. Great job brotha

What a hunt! Are these all eyeball finds? Thanks for posting the excellent video and sharing your excitement.

Nominating the hunt as a whole for banner, although the plate alone is deserving.

Congrats on the fruit of your hard work!
