Please Note: This is an authentic 1715 Fleet Shipwreck Treasure Coin, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.
FOR PENDANT SIZE SEE COIN DETAILS BELOW
One of the most famed treasure fleets of all time, the 1715 Spanish Treasure Fleet yields some of the most stunning examples of early 1700's silver Spanish "cob" shipwreck treasure coins.
Crudely minted cob coins - short for cabo de barra, or "end of the bar," each has it's own unique shape - and combined with the sea wear and stunning patinas, each is a small work of art!
What connection does the 1715 Fleet have to Pirates: These "pieces of 8" are also the famous coins of pirate legend and lore. The Spanish quickly began salvaging their fleet. But pirate Henry Jennings amassed a crew and attacked Spanish salvage camp in early 1716. They made off with upwards of 120,000 pieces of 8. Obviously, this coin survived that raid, and lay hidden for hundreds of years on the ocean bottom, to be salvaged only a few years ago.
Note from Robert: Beautiful, well struck cross and shield. Rare partial visible "13" date. Less than 2% of Mexico City coin at this time had visible dates as they usually fell off the edge of the planchet.
Us treasure hunters affectionately call this a "Key West Dog Tag." Sidle (if there's no horse, it's sidle) up to an oyster bar and with wearing this and you will turn heads.
It comes with its original Mel Fisher Cobb Coin Company Certificate of Authenticity with the Cobb Coin Company Florida Corporate Seal stamped over the coin outline and weight, from back in the 1970s and early '80s, during the "Glory Days of the 1715 Fleet." During this time, part of Mel's crew was searching for the Atocha off Key West (they discovered it in 1985).
This is true Treasure Hunter memorabilia - rare and valuable.
Additional Coin and Certificate details: Someone long ago believed in the magic and mystery of treasure salvage, and this was part of their return for their monetary investment probably for the 1715 Fleet treasure hunting season the previous summer. True treasure hunter memorabilia. These notes will be kept with your detailed documentation package we provide, so its provenance isn't lost to time.
