August 2012 Treasure of the Month

August’s Treasure of the Month is actually a treasure within a treasure. On June 1st, 2003, Captain Jon Wilson¬† and his crew were working on the Cabin Wreck, one of the most productive of the 1715 Fleet wreck sites. They found an ornate gold box, which was a treasure in and of itself. What was in the box is what makes this find so unique. There inside was a magnificent cross studded with emeralds, a five-foot long chain, and two gold rings! Truly a treasure within a treasure.
