Treasure Victim of Cape Hatteras

Record #:
A victim can be the Central America, a ship that an oceanographic atlas and US Navy wreck list had tried to locate. Victim can be defined by the loss of 482 human lives. In this case, victim directly alluded to the loss of gold. Approximately $600,000 of this precious metal—in the form of coins, dust, and nuggets—was jettisoned by the crew into the sand clouded briny deep.
