Holy shit! Where in the world did you find a whole sword from the 1700's?! I don't mean the exact spot, but, was it buried? Found in a cave? Details, we want details, Leo! Even though it was found a while ago, I'm putting that bad boy up on top. We need action up there after the winter I just went through Yes

It was just over a foot down in the sand at the bottom of one of the cliffs and it was totally encrusted,all I could see was the tip and the pommel, I sent it to a guy I know to get electrolisis and took just over three months,when he was done it looked almost new.

Man, that's ridiculous. On the beach no less. Maybe some old pirate dudes were having a sword fight, and the loser dropped his sword in the sand after being stabbed to death, and you found it 230 years later. Amazing some of the stuff we find! Well done Beer
