Massive clump of 500(+/-) English East India Co. copper X cash, 1808, in original stacks in encrustation (as found), plus a few loose coins. KM-319. 1906 grams total, roughly 5" x 3-1/2" x 3". One of the largest and densest clumps we have ever offered, literally hundreds of coins in five tight rows (like mint rolls), all held together by orange encrustation that bears the edge-imprints of other rolls, of which a few coins remain, all very natural and as found. With certificate. Recovered from: Admiral Gardner, sunk in 1809 southeast of England
