In 1941 the SS ship Gairsoppa was going from India to Britain carrying a cargo of about 219 tons of silver on board, when it was struck by the enemy missile and crash-dived. In 2011 researchers have found the treasure that values now at $210 million which makes it the greatest recovery of precious metals ever lost underwater.
