This Day in Fleet History

Kip Wagner and his crew (later the Real Eight Company) record the largest find of coins from the 1715 Fleet up to that time. On this date,  several thousand silver coins were recovered from the Cabin Wreck site near Sebastian, Florida. Many of the coins were fused together in large aggregates between 1,500 – 2,000 coins and weighing in excess of seventy five pounds.
