Promotional set of 2 "bits" cut from Hollandia pillar dollars. . A bit of modern trickery, as these crudely cut 1/8 wedges (showing lightly corroded VF detail and dark surfaces) were crafted in the 1970s by a Texas dealer who handled the bulk of Hollandia coins in the US, this pair with very nice promotional display (first we have seen like this).Housed in a Capital Plastic holder inside a folio that says "TWO BITS" (no mention of the shipwreck). From: Hollandia, sunk in 1743 off the Scilly Isles, southwest of England
