9/22/12 Report - $3.5 Million Detector Find, Ice Age Beaches & Upcoming Sedwick Auction

In the following video, David Lisot of interviewed Dan Sedwick about the upcoming Sedwick Coin auction. 

Here is the link.

The photo shows some of the items that will be sold in that auction.

A Roman cavalry helmet unearthed by a detectorist in 2010 sold at auction for £2.2 million (more than 3.5 million dollars at today's exchange rate).    The helmet will go on public display at a museum.

Here is that link.

In August scientists used ROVs to find the submerged remains of ancient settlements 100 to 200 miles off of Florida's west coast in 300 feet of water.  The settlements were expected to be along the Ice Age coastline near the mouth of ancient rivers and streams.  Artifacts have been found in dredged material from similar submerged areas.   I guess that dredging has destroyed those archaeological sites. 

Here is a link to that story.

Expect southeast winds and 1 - 2 foot seas on the Treasure Coast today.  Sunday the seas will increase a bit, reaching 4 - 5 feet Monday through Wednesday.

With the return of the southeast winds and calm seas, expect building beaches and poor detecting conditions on the Treasure Coast beaches.

Low tide will be about 8 PM this evening.
The low pressure area up by Bermuda seems to be weakening and now has only a 10% chance of becoming a cyclone.

Happy hunting,
