Mexico (mint uncertain), 8 reales, 1860, assayer not visible, very rare as the only coin ever recovered from this wreck. 17.8 grams. Clear eagle and cap-and-rays despite moderate to heavy corrosion, darkly toned, but of practically inestimable value to shipwreck enthusiasts for its unique provenance published in Meylach's book. From the "Brick wreck," sunk in the mid-1800s in the Florida Keys, pedigreed to the Marty Meylach collection.
