Clump of 2 coins: Lima, Peru, bust 8 reales, Charles IV, 1792 and Mexico City, Mexico, bust ½ real, Charles III, date not visible, assayer FF (1777-84). 21.9 grams. One of the neatest things ever recovered from this obscure wreck, this piece shows the tiny ½R stuck onto the reverse of the 8R completely face on, the whole piece left totally uncleaned and encrusted (lots of orange and brown) so as not to destroy the unique cohesion of two such different coins, both coins somewhat corroded but still readable. Recovered from: "1810 wreck," east coast of Florida. With Fisher photo-certificate #22546.
