Bronze cannonball, rare. 23 lb, 5-1/5" in diameter. A perfectly round but oddly cracked ball (probably due to casting the bronze around an iron core), one of just a few found only on this ship, their reason for being believed to be related to the fact that normal iron cannonballs tended to rust away on the usually quiet Pacific coast. With Bob Marx photo-certificate. Recovered from: Capitana (Jesús María de la Limpia Concepción), sunk in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador
