A Rare Shipwreck Survivor... the 4 Reale 1715 Fleet Treasure Coin

Please Note: This is an authentic 1715 Fleet Shipwreck Treasure Coin, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.

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 "from the end of the bar," each has its own unique shape - and combined with the sea wear and stunning patinas, each is a small work of art!

Note from Robert:Even though the strike is light and typical for the Mexico City mint at this time, this piece has a really nice weight to it - not much was lost to being submerged in the ocean for almost 300 years. Rarer denomination - only about 12% of the coins minted at this time were 4 reales. The majority were the large 8 reales.
