M/V Sea Reaper continues gold streak
Capt. Dan Porter and the crew of the M/V Sea Reaper continue to recover gold coins from the Douglas Beach Wreck site. On Saturday they recovered ten more 2 escudos with numismatic specimens from the mints at Bogota, Lima, Mexico and possibly another Cuzco. Many bore clearly legible dates. It was also a day of firsts, with many of the Sea Reaper's crew finding their first gold coins. Pictured below is Art Schweitzer, a principle in Dan's company Maritime Research & Recovery, with his first gold coin. As well as Dan and his daughter Allie with her first gold coin.
