Clump of two cob 8R "biscuits" (cocooned in oxidized encrustation). 53.8 grams total. A very neat little display consisting of two fairly solid coins that are entirely encased in dark, shelly encrustation and positioned (as found) with one leaning on the other, with a prominent "slipper-shell" stuck on top of one of the coins, somewhat rare as these things usually get broken apart and cleaned. From the 1715 Fleet. Recovered from: Spanish 1715 Fleet, sunk off the east coast of Florida
