Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.255: More Innsmouth Gold!
Joe Broers kindly sent me a small sample of gold coins which, he informs me, originally formed part of a much larger cache - discovered whilst Joe was exploring the notorious Devil's Reef (which, as informed readers ae no doubt aware, lies off the coast of equally disrepitable Massachusetts maritime town of Innsmouth). The coins were found in s rotting wooden chest hidden under a pile of seaweed within the deeper recesses of a sea cave. Joe assures me that, uniformly, the coins from the cache are stamped with images of various cephalopodic monstrousities, along with other, less-imaginable oceanic phantasmagoria.
