Christensen, Henry, Inc. (Madison, NJ). The Ubilla-Echevez Collection [Real Eight collection of 1715 Fleet coins] (October 8, 1964), rare hardbound edition with prices realized, with 8" x 10" photo of Kip Wagner and Mel Fisher. 6-1/4" x 9-1/4"; 40 pages; VF. Avid Fleet collectors know that the first and probably most elusive auction catalog of Fleet finds is this one, presented under the names of the Spanish captains to avoid infringement of "first publication" rights with National Geographic, featuring over 100 gold cobs, even rarer as one of a limited post-auction hard binding incorporating prices realized. The accompanying photo (modern print) shows Mel Fisher holding a huge clump of silver coins and Kip Wagner sorting through them.
