I think I'm the closest to the location on the site (<1.8 sm) so I'm buying a metal detector and heading out.

The treasure coast is living up to it's name.

No kidding! And a few of the coins were extremely rare. Three feet of water..
I'm a news junky- and love reading BBC to get their take on situations on our side of the pond.

My brother in law was out on the beach with his metal detector and only found bottle caps, but that was Orange Beach, Al. Hope springs eternal.

"My brother in law was out on the beach with his metal detector and only found bottle caps, but that was Orange Beach, Al. Hope springs eternal."

At least discarded pull tabs are getting rare.

Best place to work a metal detector is any Canadian beach..

Their Looney is a dollar coin the Tooney is a two dollar coin.

If only their dollars were worth more than 75c it would be ideal.
