Lot of 17 encrusted, small silver cobs with original, numbered cards from Cobb Coin Co. (Mel Fisher). These are just puffy black blobs now (some broken), but once they were all silver cobs that completely oxidized under the sea, such that cleaning them is no longer feasible, hence the Fisher folks left them as ENCRUSTED COINS (stamped in red on each original tag). Recovered from: Spanish 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida
