In the episode tonight they showed more items removed from the second large can using the hammer grab tool and the start of the sinking of the third can.

Curse of Oak Island, History Channel, Did they find anything?The most interesting find shown this week was not from one of the cans, but from old spoils. The find was a large piece of leather.

The leather was taken to an expert to be examined and some interesting information was given.

The leather turned out to be the sole of a boot. The process used to tan the leather dates back to 1235, which was the teaser date in the preview from last week.

However, the leather probably comes from much later, perhaps from the 1500s which could mean it was from the depositor time frame.
