The following items were recovered from the Oak Island Money Pit by Dan Blankenship. They were displayed at the popular Explore Oak Island Days, an annual event which took place during the 2000s. These photos were taken in 2005. Decide for yourself whether you believe the Money Pit is a natural phenomenon, given the recovery of these objects.
This collection shows pieces of broken chain, fragments of metal encrusted with cement and hand forged wire.
The stone measures approximately 10 inces wide and appears to have ben fashioned by human hand in places, showing evidence of it having been ‘worked’, perhaps by tools or even a rope repeatedly passing across the surface.
This piece of parchment was recovered from the Oak Island Money Pit during excavations. At 46 metres, the drill struck soft stone and below that, a layer of oak. Proceeding this, the drill bit sunk through what could only be described as spices of loose metal and when it came to the surface, the above fragment was recovered from the tip of the drill. Many people believe it shows the letters “vi” or “ri” in a flowing, handwritten script, however, the orientation of the fragment must be considered, as it may mean something very different another way up. The fragment is very small indeed, measuring no more than about a centimetre across.
