Lot of 3 pieces of an original riel (strap) for making cob planchets, 129 grams total, very rare, from the 1715 Fleet. 4" x 2-1/2" assembled. With the appearance of three blank cob 8 reales (but slightly heavier), these three pieces fit together perfectly on their broken edges, the other edges naturally rounded, top sides smooth but bottoms rough (as made), no encrustation or markings of any kind, first such item we have ever handled (but see our article "Straps for Cash" for pictures of similar pieces in the old Real Eight Museum). From the 1715 Fleet.
