Clump of thirteen bust 8R and three bust 1/2R (probably all Mexico, Charles III), one of the 8R loose and partially cleaned. 392 grams total, roughly 3" x 2" x 1-1/2". A very solid and heavy clump with nine 8R in a leaning stack from which two 8R have fallen to the side, all cocooned in brown and gray encrustation, with a small stack of three 1/2R (top one with reverse exposed) on top, plus a loose (solid) 8R that was taken from the top of this clump (impression still visible) and partially cleaned (still dark, but with all details visible), a great display or paperweight and actually more interesting with the one coin removed to show what is inside. With certificates from the salvager. Recovered from: Cazador, sunk in 1784 off New Orleans, Louisiana
