Gibson started searching for historical treasures while he was active duty military on Eglin Air Force Base and has amassed a collection of Civil War relics as well as Spanish and Indian artifacts. But his most impressive find is still the Grayton Beach Meteorite.

"I still have people who ask me if I've found another meteor yet," he said. "Of course I keep trying to top that find. It may not be a meteor, but I'm gonna hit it again."
