Treasure hunting free-for-all

Do you know where there is a hidden treasure?

Might want to keep it on the hush-hush or you could find yourself in court!

Looks like treasure hunters in Florida are exactly there, when they retrieved over $500 million worth of silver coins believed to be from the Spanish galleon “Nuestra Senora de las Mercedes y las Animas” which was sunk in the Atlantic Ocean off of Portugal in 1804. 
Spain also wants their share (which may be all of it, thank you) of the loot, but the company that found it would like to at least keep the location of the find secret.  They fear there will then be a treasure hunting free-for-all, and these intrepid divers will make off with the rest of the treasure.
May 9th, 2008 is the deadline for Spain’s claim in the 17 tons of goodies.
Do we know where a Spanish galleon or two rest off the coast of Oregon or Washington?  Wrecks dating from the 17th-century have been noted, and another wreck hundreds of years older have been speculated. 
We’re not telling…

Or are we?
