    Typical government. Do nothing but sit on the shore and demand that you turn it over.

    I bet it is at museum near to other Spanish items during New Spain Florida.

    That´s from the "Atocha" fleet…

    Kind of interesting, I bet they found the booty in next to the reef, the place that most of the people overlooked. I visited the Atocha museum, I always said treasure was still lost on the reef!!!

    Seriously, what are the statistical odds of finding this horde of coins… including 9 Royals, on the exact 300th anniversary of the wrecks. It’s not 300 to one that’s for sure…Makes a great name and premium value for any coin slabbed from that horde.. “300 Anniversary Find “… I’ve never bought that bullshit…never will

    They should not get anything. You can’t claim like that. It’s not right.

    Treasure hunting in Florida? Here ya go page 79 of Francis Parkmans "Pioneers of France in the New World" 1865 "During the winter, Indians from the neighborhood of cape Canaveral brought to the fort two Spaniards, wrecked fifteen years before (1550) on the southwestern extremity of the peninsula." "They told of the King of Calos, on whose domains they had been wrecked, a chief mighty in stature and in power. In one of his villages was a pit, six feet deep and as wide as a hogshead, filled with the treasure gathered from Spanish wrecks on adjacent reefs and keys." Good Hunting!

    I don’t think I’d tell a single person of my finds, I’ll just sell it as is.

    Stole the gold claim they found it from a shipwreck. Simple as that.
