All items are genuine unless noted. Most shipwreck coins and artifacts come with a certificate of authenticity (please check the description for each item). By bidding in this auction you understand and agree to the Terms and Conditions posted here.
Denomination set of 8-4-2-1-1/2 reales dated 1779, assayer FF, rare as a set, the 4R particularly rare. 23.9, 10.6, 5.2, 3.1 and 1.3 grams. Some good details despite corrosion and wear and polishing, a matched set like this being nearly impossible to make because of the rarity of the 4R, of which very few were found. From the Cazador, sunk in 1784 off Louisiana, with salvager's certificates #8831, 8832, 8833, 8834 and 8835.
