Gary Drayton is a master beach and shallow water treasure hunter from the UK but now calls South Florida his home. Gary spent many years as a bottle digger in the UK, digging old Victorian trash pits and “mud hopping” along the river banks in search of old bottles, clay pipes, doll heads, and marbles. Some of the bottles he found dated back to the early 1600s and the clay pipes from the 1500s. His oldest bottle find was a Roman perfume bottle dating from the Roman occupation! It was bottle digging that eventually led to his interest in metal detecting; every year Gary would find more and more coins while digging for bottles!
When Gary then moved across the pond to South Florida he decided one day to take his metal detector to the beach and your not going to believe this folks but Gary's first target he dug was a Spanish Silver Piece of Eight! Then a few months later he found a 1715 Spanish Fleet Gold and Emerald Ring..... due to Gary's privacy I am not even going to tell you what it appraised for but let's just put it this way most of us could retire after finding it...lol! Gary T. Drayton since then has found hundreds of Gold Rings, Jewelry of all types, Coins, Silver, Rolex's, Bronze Ship Spikes, War Artifacts and Spanish Treasure! Gary is a relentless beach hunter who has even been complimented by Famous Late Great 1715 Spanish Fleet Salvager Bob Weller for having the 3 P's - Patience, Persistence and Preservance! That is a huge compliment coming from Bob "FrogFoot" Weller and by the way for those who don't know who he is, Bob was a Legendary Treasure Hunter that has probably found more treasure than all of us combined!
