Please Note: This is an authentic British East India Company Queen Shipwreck Flint, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.
Once stowed in the gun room of the British East Indiaman Queen, these shipwreck survivors went to the bottom when the legendary trade vessel blew up and sunk just outside the Bay of All Saints in Brazil. For use in the Brown Bess musket of the day, they were used by British forces and settlers alike, and were a good fit for most of the long guns of the day. They are perfect for history buffs, reenactors and gun enthusiasts!

This musket flint was recovered from the remains of the British East Indiaman Queen. She was carrying numerous trade goods, including tin and copper bars, ceramics, war materials, glass products, etc., to East India Company colonies in India. Queen was replenishing water and other perishables at Salvador, Brazil, before continuing her journey to St. Helena and on to India. While 25% of East Indiamen were lost, ironically, Queen didn’t sink due to war or storm or bad navigation, but rather it was said from a candle in a cabin.
However, a letter dated 17 July, 1800, states otherwise. On July 9, 1800, at 3:00 am. she was set afire in the Bay of All Saints at St. Salvador, Brazil. The crew tried to save the ship, but the fire spread so fast Queen became a major threat to other ships moored near her and fortunately “the current carried her clear of the Bay, and she drove a considerable distance before she blew up.”
Carefully salvaged and then fully documented by Robert, these varied-colored musket flints are rare and wonderful reminders of a time when kings ruled the land, and pirates ruled the seas!
