IMO (for what its worth) That era Spanish Gold coin design(Lyon & Castles) is THE most beautiful ever made :)
They truly are treasures to behold in many ways :)
In the silver digging video he has the big old piece of eight.
JIMMY SAYS: "It's going right there"
Meaning on a chain
I'm now wondering if he'll change his mind and change it up to a gold 8. :headbang:

He's caused quite a stir on the treasurecoast......rumor has it that he is way north of the known 1715 wrecks. Im not gonna say where I think he is but there could be another 1715 wreck offshore !! Whatever the case thats what dreams are made of !!

The other rumor is that several hunters are tracking his every movment in an effort to find that spot. I was saddened to here that one guy even had his license plate number !! To me thats sad.....I would put in the effort to find my own spots !!


It was such an incredible find that I had to call around the treasure coast and ask.....seems his secret is safe so far !!

I hope he's able to keep it under wraps till the fever dies down.

If true that could lead to another ship of the 1715 fleet being located, very exciting. Fabulous finds Jimmy! Congratulations!
It makes the mind wonder if in fact it is another wreck.
I don't know the how far these finds are from the known wrecks though I was thinking how far could an item (small chest) travel/tossed around in a hurricane-feet/yrds/miles?
I'm sure there's a lot more questions being asked than one can answer.

I'm no Geo-Scientist but. It would stand to reason some of the ships & treasures have made it further N. than ground zero. As most of the major storms in that area( in the past 300 years) have traveled in a North/N. East direction.:)

When the ships wrecked in 1715 the only civilized outpost was st. Augustine. Many survivors tried to make the trek from vero to augustine by foot. Along that beach trek many died with there wealth which they were carrying on there person. So it could well be that survivors died here. My mentors here in the keys once found a bunch of gold escudos scattered amongst the bones of a dead spanish survivor from the 1733 fleet. He was quite a distance from the salvage camp and was in the middle of the island when he perished !! Any scenario could happen.....wish I had a time machine !!

He's been using the CTX 3030, and the thought occurred now I'm wondering if a PI machine would find some more deeper ones?
