Florida man finds trove of valuable treasures from 1715 shipwreck

Indian River Shores, Florida — A trove of Spanish coins dating back to a 1715 shipwreck during a storm have been found along a beach in Florida. CBS affiliate WPEC-TV reported that 43-year-old treasure hunter Jonah Martinez located the coins using a metal detector. He was able to dig out 22 silver coins he estimates are worth about $6,000.

Twelve Spanish galleons laden with treasures from the New World were bound for Spain on July 31, 1715, but 11 were lost during a hurricane off the coast of Florida. Most of the treasure lies beneath the ocean.

Florida law requires recovery permits for individuals who want to explore or recover artifacts on state-owned lands underwater, but not on a public beach.

Are there sunken galleons in Lake Ed, ed?

The gold belongs to the U.S. District Court of Florida. In the case of the Schmitt family's find, the state will keep 20 percent of it, and the rest will be split among Brisben and the Schmitts.

It's mostly in the teeth of old fucks who were pulled under by various sea monsters and whose corpses were wracked by the unrelenting seas surrounding our picturesque beaches and then, during a viscous storm, had their remains deposited near to where their adventure began.

BTW, for Captain Kidd's lost treasure, better check North Carolina not Florida. :cowbell:
