Great finds! Thanks for sharing!
Coins and other metal items buried in organic material will often heavily corrode due to the acidic nature of the ground.
There are some places along the Treasure Coast where peat is buried under the sand of the dunes. Fossils can be found there.
There was a time back a few decades ago when I saw a lot of old tree stumps in the water north of Colored Beach.
There is a good chance that a storm will develop south of Jamaica later today. That is something to keep watching.
The surfing web sites are still predicting only one or two foot surf on the Treasure Coast for a week or so. That could change.
