10/10/14 Report - Subtropical Storm Fay and Two Other Weather Systems. Heavily Encrusted Objects. Ancient Greek Shipwreck.

Written by the TreasureGuide for the exclusive use of

Fay and Two More Disturbances.
It was a beautiful morning.  The breeze was very nice.

The big news today is subtropical storm Fay and two other disturbances. 

Fay is out in the Atlantic.  The predicted path of Fay shows her heading into the North Atlantic and away from Florida.

There are two other disturbances to the South and East of Fay that might be heading this way.

Very often we get a good beach ripping storm in either October or November.  We'll have to wait and see what happens with these two disturbances.

Today we had a two-foot surf.  The surf is predicted to increase up to about four feet by Monday and then decrease again.   We'll see how that turns out.

We're also finally getting a negative low tide.

About five or six years ago we had a very good October storm that washed out a good number of cobs.

Sometimes it isn't easy to decide if you want to clean a coin or artifact.  Sometimes it is the visible wear and tear that shows an item's age and makes it more interesting.

As I was browsing the most recent Sedwick Coins online auction, I was noticing how some auction lots showed evidence of years in the ocean.

Some auction items were almost covered by conglomerate or crust, while others showed just a touch of something.

Here are a couple heavily encrusted items from the auction.  I posted the link the other day.

Here is an article about items found on an ancient Greek shipwreck.

Happy hunting,
