Clump of two Mexican silver cobs (one 8R and one 4R) and piece of earthenware in coral, ex-Fismer. 243 grams, roughly 4" x 3" x 1-1/2". A super display with the 8R fully exposed on shield side (mintmark and assayer not visible but probably oMP), the 4R hiding behind it (just the edge visible), both coins dark but solid-looking, both to the side of an orange-colored shard that is embedded in rounded white coral, great for a paperweight or conversation piece. Recovered by Carl Fismer in 1986, with his hand-signed photo-certificate. Recovered from: Concepcion, sunk in 1641 off Hispaniola
