We’ll return to the legal shenanigans presently. But what exactly did GME find? Well, diving in waters just off Florida’s Cape Canaveral, the divers uncovered a scattered array of objects on the seabed. For instance, pictured here is a bronze cannon with a fleur-de-lis mark, which is a symbol of France.
The GME divers also found three highly decorated brass cannons. These weapons, GME boss Robert Pritchett informed Live Science, may be worth in excess of $1 million apiece. They lie in water from 15 to 25 feet deep amid sands that are continually moving. “So the cannons could be covered by 3 feet of sand, or they could be covered by 8 feet of sand. It’s different every time the wind blows,” Pritchett told the Daily Mail.
