Clump of two cob 8 reales (one Mexico, one Potosi), probably Philip III, assayers not visible, ex-Jones (Plate Coin). 17.25 grams. Like most coins from this early wreck nestled between 1715-Fleet sites, the coins in this clump are both worn smooth, but each shows clear details (one with shield out and the other with cross out) and is nicely toned, solidly fused together as found. Pedigreed to the Dr. Peter Jones collection, plated on page 218 of his book The First Coins of the Americas (2020), with Sedwick certificate from 2003. Recovered from: San Martin, sunk in 1618 off the east coast of Florida
