Side of wooden chest with 23+ coins encrusted on it (as found). 10 lb, approx. 25" x 9" x 3". This large and fragile display is basically a thick, wooden plank, worm-eaten at one end, with heavy encrustation holding white shell bits and eight clumps of coins onto one side and probably containing pieces of iron, as it is dark orange and cracking due to expansion, with a thin layer of lacquer on the surface for stability, among the most impressive artifacts from this highly promoted wreck, very eye-catching and substantial. (Pickup recommended, otherwise special shipping and handling fees will apply, at buyer's risk, and no international shipping available.) Recovered from: Cazador, sunk in 1784 off New Orleans
