Small brass religious medallion with research letter. 2.0 grams, 1" in diameter. Circular medal with loop at top intact, thin from moderate corrosion but with various figures (supposedly St. Charles and St. Terese of Carmel) and some letters still visible, with important and very rare provenance, a ship that was carrying Franciscan missionaries to the Philippines by way of Mexico and captained by Don Julian Antonio de Urcullu, who, ironically, was also the captain of El Nuevo Constante, sunk in 1766 off Louisiana. With letter from Fisher researcher Corey Malcolm. Recovered from: El Buen Consejo, sunk in 1772 off Anguilla (Leeward Islands)
