Lot of 2 coins of France (Rouen mint): silver half ecu, 1730-B, and copper sol, 1791-B. 8.7 and 8.5 grams. The silver coin in this lot is worn but well detailed, with all legends (including date and mintmark) very clear; the copper coin appears to have good detail too but under encrustation (needs cleaning) and dark toning. These are the first coins we have ever had from this still-unidentified wreck, but we hope to have more. Recovered from: Unidentified English or French wreck sunk in the late 1700s in the English Channel.
