Nearly spherical natural gold nugget, 26.47 grams, from the 1715 Fleet (rare provenance). Roughly 7/8" x 5/8" x 1/2". Very smooth and featureless but significant as the weight of an 8 escudos and probably traded as such in its time (tax free), with traces of grayish-white encrustation in some areas. From the 1715 Fleet, pedigreed to our Auction #21, with original lot-tag #278.
