    But.... How did all the coins get there in the first place? Were they pulling up a stash they left when they were on the lam?

    Will Mercedes take all those steel rounds and make them a car?
    (Might make an interesting "Art-car")

    Anyone that would try to pass off steel blanks for coins is a slug!

    There were a number of US steel pennies made in the early 40s because of the war. Do other countries use steel for coins, and why would there be a concentration of them only a few feet below the water surface? Would have liked to see the reaction by bank officials on these bags of slugs.

    Too bad you don't have a copper 1943 penny. One of those sold for $1.7 million in 2010.
