Small, ornate, bronze cross recovered by Art McKee. 3.2 grams, 1-3/4" x 1". As described in the late Bob "Frogfoot" Weller's excellent book Galleon Hunt, the famous treasure diver Art McKee searched for many years for this Caribbean wreck before he located it in 1979 and salvaged items from it, including this small, double-armed cross with Jesus and SALVATOR MVNDI on one side and Mary with MATER DEI on the other side, loop at top for use as a pendant, coppery in color, fully intact with only very light surface pits. With Kevin McKee (son of Art) photo-certificate from 1993. Recovered from: La Genovesa, sunk in 1730 on the Pedro Shoals near Jamaica.
