Mexico City, Mexico, bust 1 real, Charles III, 1783FF, choice Mint State. KM-78.2. 3.1 grams. Without a doubt this is the choicest specimen of any coin we have ever seen from this wreck, and the divers tell us only a few such items were found, and only in this denomination. The strike is flawless and the surfaces are unblemished except for a microscopic pitting, with lots of luster and some orange toning that makes it look like a gold coin. Very rare grade for this issue. Recovered from: Cazador, sunk in 1784 off Louisiana. With certificate from the salvager.
