Just copied this from a web site.....if anyone interested.....fyi......if you don't already know.

New Jersey treasures waiting to be found
With all of its shoreline, New Jersey was an enticing place for pirates to bury treasure, and some of them did. However, very few American coins would have been included. It is not unusual for old coins to wash up on beaches, particularly after storms and high tides or, especially, after a combination of both of these events. Asbury Park, Stone Harbor, Beach Haven, and other coastal sites have been mentioned in this regard. Pirate gold is said to be secreted at several places including Perth Amboy and Cape May.
Near Colt's Neck and near Farmingdale, both in Monmouth County, robbers who terrorized the pine barrens are said to have buried their loot.
Near Caldwell a German naval officer is said to have secreted a treasure before he was killed

Beach Hunter....He must know where there is a ship wreck in Salisbury MA. ...He finds cobs!!!!.......

Massachusetts treasures waiting to be found
In Salisbury, Essex County, $175,000 in buried treasure has never been found.
Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, both offshore south of Cape Cod, are said to have been favorite roosts for buccaneers.
Cape Cod (in particular) and other coastal regions are said to have been a popular place for secreting pirate gold and silver. Captain Kidd's name is often associated with such accounts. Anyone wanting to read exciting tales of Massachusetts ship losses, disasters, and pirates need but acquire several of the books written by the late Edward Rowe Snow, who for many years was the prime American chronicler of sea lore. Snow related that it was common practice for pirates to be tried (loose interpretation of this judicial term) in Boston and their corpses put in shackles and chains and taken to islands in Boston harbor to be strung up from a gibbet in full view of passing ships

like we had last year that made the shores sparkle like a jewelry box in some places :) I still can't get over seeing the effects of a NE'r on some of those beaches for the first time since moving here. Having to jump 5-6 feet down to the sand from a spot where I used to take maybe 5 steps down a ramp to reach the sand a week before was amazing.

We have some weather coming in the next week or so, but I'm afraid it's gonna be scattered and over with too quickly. I told my wife I'm heading out way more than I did last year - I just couldn't seem to find the time enough in 2007 to get out as much as I wanted to.

Good hunting all and I'll see you out there!
