Part of my research for a booklet I wrote about the Treasure Coast 1715 Spanish fleet wreck revealed that he has had an old injury and that is the only way he can swing, but at the bottom of the arc will find things. So he has to work 4x harder than we do beach hunting. Amazing gentleman.

You probably saw a video showing just some of the rings he has found.

Florida beach hunters are 95% from other states on vacation who know nothing about beach hunting nor bring the right detector. It is the locals who really know where to find the good stuff and are there at the right times to find the good stuff. One day on the beach on the east coast of FL I talked to about 20 detectorist I met on the beach and not a single one was a local.

don't see this every day! 56,029 people watched this video and probably 50,000 in California went out and bought a metal detector.
