The mystery of the codfish medallion solved
It appears the mystery of the medallion found in a codfish in Fortune Bay last August has been solved.
Several readers contacted ‘ The Southern Gazette’ last week identifying the object as a collectible item included when purchasing the retail box version for the online role playing videogame ‘EverQuest: Lost Dungeons of Norrath’ released in 2003.
The medallion, which in this case was attached to a string to form a necklace, was originally part of a keychain that included the ‘EverQuest’ logo.
It was discovered in the mouth of a codfish off Harbour Mille Cape, during last year’s recreational fishery.
Luke Myles, 13, was visiting from Grand Prairie, Alberta, last year and went on the fishing expedition with his grandfather Guy Hackett, of English Harbour East, in Peter Clarke’s boat last August when the medallion was ound.
The boy had tried numerous avenues to identify the object over the past year without any luck. Back again for another visit, he and his grandfather stopped by The Gazette’s office in Marystown earlier this month.
