FMDAC UPDATE
To go along with the new website we now have a new
forum. It is not yet linked to the website as I write this but
should be soon.
It is hosted by mytreasurespot. com. It is at the bottom
of the forum lists. You do need to be registered with
mytreasurespot in order to post.
The forum is meant to be an information exchange where
you can go to find the latest and up to date info on issues
effecting the hobby along with any general FMDAC info.
This is also a place where you can ask questions.

Hope you will check in on it.

2015 PLANS FOR CELEBRATING
300TH ANNIVERSARY
Years of planning are coming together toward marking the
300th anniversary of the July 31, 1715, sinking of the Spanish
treasure fleet off the eastern coast of Florida during a storm.
Kicking off the commemoration will be a selected display of
recovered sunken treasure and artifacts from the State. The
items will be exhibited Jan. 8 to 11, 2015, at the Florida United
Numismatists Convention at the Orange County Convention
Center in Orlando.
Thursday, Jan 8: 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Educational Seminar. “The Loss of the 1715 Plate Fleet,”
by Ben Costello. 2015 is the 300th anniversary of the historic
Spanish fleet loss off the east coast of Florida. Who better to
discuss this event than Ben Costello, a director of the 1715 Fleet
Society? Mr. Costello will detail the “hows, whys and whens”
of one of the most significant events in numismatic history!
Thursday, Jan 8: 1130-12:30
Educational Seminar. “A Sunken Ship is a Time Capsule:
The 1715 Plate Fleet Wreck,” by Peter Cowdry. The speaker
is the current educator in residence at the Museum of Florida
History in Tallahassee. His program will focus on a range of
issues including what was on these ships of the great fleet
wreck, the degree to which they’ve been preserved, and the
navigational problems faced by the fleets of that era.
