Anchor From Richest Sunken Treasure EVER Found!

IMG_0839Welcome to the world’s richest sunken treasures ever found… OK, the ships anchor from the richest treasure!

Mel Fisher was a dreamer, a visionary, a legend and now called the World’s Greatest Treasure Hunter! Everyday for 16 years he insisted “Today’s the Day!” that he would find the mother lode for the sunken treasure ship known as the Atocha, the Spanish galleon that sank during a hurricane on September 6, 1622, near Key West. On July 20, 1985 he found the “Atocha Mother Lode” treasure cache (and ANCHOR) worth a staggering $450 million dollars.

You can find the anchor from one of the richest sunken treasures ever found in the world at the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum located at 200 Greene Street in Key West’s ‘Old Town’. The anchors are FREE to view and are located in front of the building.
