My thoughts on what I'm watching: The True Treasure of Oak Island

The True Treasure Of Oak Island

After nine seasons, Gary Drayton, with his happy-go-lucky demeanor, soothing English accent, and over 25 years of treasure hunting and vast knowledge of history, is Oak Island's real "Bobby Dazzler."

It is, without a doubt, that without Gary, the "Metal Detecting Ninja," the Lagina brothers would have little to no treasure in their hands.

Using his dandy hand-held metal detecting device, Gary has found many brilliant finds, including several 18th-century British coins and buttons. A large metal spike that may have been used to construct a 16th-century Spanish galleon. And a brooch holding a 400 to 500-year-old rhodolite garnet dating the gemstone back as early as the 1500s.

Thanks to Gary and one of his "Top Pocket Finds," a Nights Templar Cross dating back to the 14th century, found at Isaac's Point on the easternmost part of the island, shows a definitive clue that the Templars were once on the island. "Holy-Shamoly!"

It's easy to see that Gary Drayton is the true treasure of Oak Island.
