Calhoun Collector's Society boxed set of shipwreck coins (instant collection!). This is from a "coin-of-the-month" type of promotion in which, after ordering the fancy binder-case printed with "The Sunken Treasure Silver Coin Collection" on top, the client received a new coin from a different wreck in installments, and it is apparent that only mediocre coins (cheapest cost to promoters) were used (but at least they are all genuine). According to the accompanying flyer, each coin cost $150, and there are 19 here, each with its own small certificate from the promoter (plus others from divers and dealers), as follows: Potosí cob 8R Philip II P-B (5th period) from the "Rill Cove wreck" (ca. 1618); Westfriesland lion daalder 1624 from the Campen (1627); Santo Domingo copper 4 maravedís Charles-Joanna from the Maravillas (1656); Mexico cob 8 reales Charles II from the Joanna (1682); England shilling 1696 from the Association (1707); Utrecht rider ducatoon 1711 from DeLiefde (1711); Mexico cob 4 reales Philip V from the 1715 Fleet; Holland double stuiver 1724 from the Akerendam (1725); Potosí cob 1 and half reales from the Catalana (supposedly 1727, probably a fabrication); Mexico cob 8 reales 1730 from the Vliegenthart (1735); Mexico pillar 4 reales 1740, Westfriesland rider ducatoon 1734 and Brabant portrait ducatoon 1664 from the Hollandia (1743); Mexico pillar 8 reales 1740 from the Reijgersdaal (1747); Potosí cob 8 reales 1680V from the Piedmont (1795); English East India Co. copper XX and X cash 1808 from the Admiral Gardner (1809); and Madrid bust 8 reales 1816 from the Cabalva (1818).
