A note written by a 12-year-old boy on August 16,1963 resurfaced in Seaside Heights, NJ following superstorm Sandy.

Dennis Komsa of Hillsborough, NJ,  wrote the note. He spoke with Good Day NY on Monday about his message in a bottle.

The mason jar was discovered by a man who was combing through storm debris at his sister's home following superstorm Sandy.

"I was pretty surprised. You never really expect to find it. My dad and I used to do this kind of thing all the time," said Komsa.

The bottle, a letter which contained a quiz and a nickel were returned to Komsa over the weekend. He had launched the bottle in the north end of Seaside Heights 50 years ago.

Komsa described the bottle as being in "surprisingly good shape."
