The laws are becoming very strict about removing ANY artifact in the state of FL. If it weren't for us "pot" hunters, the historic knowledge of FL wouldn't amount to 1/3rd what it is now. Before I retired and left FL, I contributed 3 substantial collections....25% of the artifacts from a gold laden Galleon off Ft. Pierce., a paleo Indian collection of artifacts from mid state and I also located and assembled a large collection of artifacts from the original fort for which Ft. Pierce is named. No one knew where the fort actually was located until I found it...fortunately it was on the edge of the city and hadn't been overtaken with concrete and asphalt. It took a long time for me to learn to keep my mouth shut when I find something but now that I'm in my 80's I don't worry about it as I can't hunt as I did all those prior 60+ years. I'd love to see some of your finds, why don't you post some?
