Ready for much bigger news than this. Let the salvage season begin.
Over a five-day trip to the site, our team uncovered what appeared to be a small chest with over 240 silver coins, and 9 rare gold coins. Several pocket watches including one very ornate and beautifully detailed ocean life pocket watch. Other items include 41 pieces of silverware, stoneware and ships hardware.
To date a total of 390 silver coins, 23 gold coins , 5 gold pocket watches, and numerous other historical artifacts have been recovered. Both companies believe the face value for the coins found to date to be less than $300. It was estimated that passenger losses were near $150,000, when the Pulaski went down, meaning we have barely scratched the surface of valuable coins and artifacts yet to be recovered.
