Heart-shaped pewter locket/reliquary. 21.2 grams, about 1-3/4" x 1". Very solid and heavy, but plain and unadorned, this fused-shut locket is believed to contain a relic of some sort, the remains of which you can still hear moving inside if you shake it, made in the form of a heart with tall stem with hole for suspension, its dark gray surfaces still somewhat glossy. From the Capitana El Rubi and pedigreed to the Art McKee treasure museum, with McKee photo-certificate. Recovered from: 1733 Fleet, Florida Keys.
