Wooden cask base encrusted with 6 English East India Co. copper X cash, 1808, as found, unique and desirable, in glass display case. 1528 grams; about 16-1/4" x 12". One of the most impressive artifacts from this wreck, which yielded literally a million of these copper coins but practically no intact wood as we see here, the attached coins all apparently solid and well-detailed, the wood itself warped and split in two but otherwise intact and useful for showing the diameter of an original coin-cask from the time. With photo-certificate. Recovered from: Admiral Gardner, sunk in 1809 southeast of England
