    A Rare 4 Reale - and Extremely Rare Certificate Hand Signed by Mel Fisher and Delores Fisher!

    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 it's own unique shape - and combined with the sea wear and stunning patinas, each is a small work of art!

    Note from Robert: Most Cobb Coin Company and Treasure Salvors Certificates of Authenticity have facsimile copies of Mel's and his crew's signatures. But every now and then it is possible to score a real gem! This coin comes with an incredibly rare Treasure Salvors Certificate of Authenticity not only personally signed by Mel Fisher, but also his wife, Delores "Deo" Fisher, and curator Leah L. Miguel. The coin was certified February 4th, 1982... three years before Fisher and his crew "hit the mother-load" of the Atocha.

    Mel Fisher had the lease on the 1715 Fleet (while they searched for Atocha off Key West), and this coin was discovered on the 1715 Fleet off Vero Beach, and conserved at their lab at 633 Front Street in Key West. It has an old style actual photograph of the coin attached to it, and the coin's info has been laboriously typed onto the card-stock heavy paper. It's pretty amazing to hold!

    Most of the coins recovered from "The Fleet" were the large silver dollar sized 8 reales. Only about 12% of the coins minted at that time were the smaller 4 reales. This is true Treasure Hunter memorabilia - rare and valuable.

    This Certificate also comes with our own, 3 page Certificate of Authenticity that explains the rarity and significance of this piece to preserve its rare provenance for the future.
