Attractively encrusted clump of 10 Mexico City, Mexico, cob 4 reales, probably all Philip V, ex-Bowers & Ruddy 1977 sale. 180.5 grams total. One of the best little artifacts available from this popular wreck, with eight of the coins standing at a right angle to the other two, all thickly encrusted with white shells and other debris, the coins apparently all solid, with a highly desirable pedigree to boot (photographed in the original catalog).

Recovered from: Spanish 1715 Fleet, sunk off the east coast of Florida
