6 months ago I got permission to search a lot in Fernandina Beach whose history goes back to the 1600s. The lot once held a house and then a restaurant and was across the street from the harbor.

After cleaning out the trash I found numerous musket and Minie balls, a pistol, pocket knife and assorted coins to 1853.

Two weeks after stopping I saw about 50 feet of sidewalk was removed. Found another Minie ball and a 1718 Spanish Reale. Was real glad I checked it out

I donít recall the website but thereís a group you can connect with to return the military dogtag to the family. That means a lot to them.

I'm guessing the sinkers are from the river?
