Uncleaned Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8R "biscuit," thick with shells and debris. 38.2 grams. Probably the most impressive single-coin "biscuit" we have ever seen, as the whole coin is covered in thick, light-gray encrustation impregnated with shell bits, no part of the coin visible but distinctive in shape. From: Spanish 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida
