1679 Consolacion Shipwreck Pirate 8 Reale "Piece of Eight" Cob Necklace | Artifact #3439

Size Guide

Pirates! Perhaps no other class of seafarers is quite so famous – or infamous!

Please Note: This is an authentic Consolacion Shipwreck Treasure Coin, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.

But tying shipwreck coins to actual pirates is rare – most treasure galleons sank due to hurricanes, poor navigation or lack of upkeep.  But the Treasure of Isla de Muerto (The Treasure of Dead Man’s Island) is the exception… for her cache of glittering treasure went to the bottom because of – yes, you guessed it – PIRATES!

Robert's Notes: Full cross and "8" Denomination Mark - and you can just see the "79" date. This treasure coin has details, but perhaps my favorite thing about it is the sea-wear that really highlights the shipwreck provenance of this treasure coin.
