Clump of two cob 8R "biscuits" (cocooned in oxidized encrustation). 53.83 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. Pedigreed to our Auction #13 (lot #700). Recovered from: Spanish 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida
