Large clump of about 18 Spanish colonial milled 8 reales (probably Mexican busts of Charles III) in solid mud, as found. 773 grams total; roughly 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" x 2". Impressive artifact consisting of a fallen stack of dark coins almost completely embedded in a thick chunk of impacted orange mud, apparently stable and solid but not sealed or coated, with interesting "tunnel" under the stack of coins. Recovered from: Cazador, sunk in 1784 off New Orleans, Louisiana
