TERMS AND CONDITIONS By participating in this auction, you (hereafter referred to as the “Bidder”) are entering into a binding contract with Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC (“Auctioneer”) and agree to the following Terms and Conditions: 1)

Each lot will be sold to the highest Bidder unless the reserve or starting price is not met. Bids may be submitted in person or by mail, telephone, fax, email, or live on the Internet until each lot is closed during the live session. All bids must be received before the auction session begins. The Auctioneer or any of its employees individually cannot be responsible for errors in bidding or the loss or delay of any bids that do not reach us by the closing date and time, or for any technical glitches that prevent internet bids from being executed. All bids are in U.S. dollars. Winning bids will be reduced automatically by the iCollector platform to the next increment above the second-highest bid. In the case of tie bids, the earliest bidder will win the lot. Bidders are advised to provide allowable percentage increases to avoid losing lots due to a tie. A winning bid is contract between the winning Bidder (hereafter referred to as the “Buyer”) and the Consignor. The Buyer, even if acting as an agent for someone else, agrees to purchase the lot(s) he has won and to pay the Buyer’s Premium and any shipping costs, sales tax, bank-wire fees, customs duties, or other surcharges involved in delivering the lot(s) to the Buyer. Certain lots (particularly artifacts) may require special packaging and handling, for which a surcharge will be levied (also note shipping calculations will delay invoicing). In some special cases delivery may be arranged directly between the Consignor and the Buyer, at the buyer’s cost. At no time shall the Buyer have any legal recourse against the Consignor for any reason. Buyers will be notified as soon as possible after the sale with an invoice reflecting the total amount due and shall remit payment within two weeks of notification or within one month of the date of the first session of the auction, whichever is sooner. Buyers who do not receive notification for whatever reason are NOT released from their obligation to pay on time. If payment has not been received within these terms, the Auctioneer reserves the right to sell the lot(s) to any under-bidders for their lower bid amounts. Title to each lot does not pass until the item has been paid in full. Any late payments (one month past invoice date) will be assessed an accrued interest charge of 2% per month. Unless other arrangements are made, all lots will be sent to Buyers via U.S. Mail when the invoice has been paid in full. All domestic shipments will carry full insurance, but foreign shipments are made at the Buyer’s risk (insurance available in some cases). Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC is responsible for loss or damage to lots only up until they are received at the address to which they are sent; any transshipment from there is the buyer’s responsibility alone. Generally, lots will be shipped in the order in which they are paid. A Buyer’s Premium of 19.5% will be added to the winning bid for the total purchase price before any applicable tax or surcharges. Buyers who pay by cash, check, money order, wire transfer or direct deposit are eligible for a reduction of the Buyer’s Premium by 2% (net 17.5%). Acceptable forms of payment are cash, check, money order, wire transfer, direct deposit, PayPal, Visa/MC, American Express and Discover. All payments by check or money order should be made payable to Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC. Payments by PayPal (to auction@sedwickcoins.com) are limited to $2,500 per auction per buyer. All payments shall be in U.S. dollars drawn on a U.S. bank. Please contact us for instructions for wire-transfer payments, for which bank charges may be necessarily added to the amount to be paid, generally depending on the country from which the wire originates. New bidders who do not have established credit with us must supply commercial references in the numismatic field and/or a 25% deposit. Credit cards are acceptable in lieu of a deposit. If your bids are unsuccessful, your deposit will be refunded, but if you are a winning bidder, your deposit will be applied to your purchase unless other arrangements are made. Any bidders with an overdue balance with Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC must complete payment of their previous balance before their bids will be accepted.

You may opt for “either/or” and/or “total budget” bids on your bid sheet. “Either/or” bids are used when you want just one (or whatever number you specify) of two or more lots but it does not matter which of those lots you get. “Total budget” bids are used when you are bidding on more lots than you expect to win and do not wish to spend more than a specified amount. Both options are subject to a minimum of $5,000 total in bids and “either/or” bids are additionally subject to a minimum of $100 per lot (below that, bidders should bid live on the Internet instead). These options are not available for bids submitted via iCollector (either live or by proxy). Most lots are unreserved, but some lots do have a reserve or minimum bid assigned by the consignor. Any reserve will generally be at or below the stated low estimate and starting price. All estimates are given in U.S. dollars. As an active dealer, Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC is able to estimate a reasonably low wholesale level for each lot and reserves the right to reject any bids below this level (generally at least 70% of low estimate). Furthermore we reserve the right to reject any bids that we have reason to believe are not submitted in good faith. Starting bids are provided on iCollector when the auction is published, and bids below those starting bids cannot be entered. Prices realized do not necessarily reflect accurate market values so much as what the high bidder is willing to pay based on his own needs. All items are guaranteed genuine and as described. Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC does NOT guarantee that any lots can be successfully encapsulated. Auctions are NOT approval sales, and therefore returns will NOT be accepted UNLESS there was an error in the listing. Note that grading and estimation of corrosion are subjective and differences of opinion cannot be considered errors. Lots encapsulated by PCGS, NGC or any other third-party company may not be returned for any reason. Disputes as to authenticity shall be resolved by submission to PCGS or NGC, and if their determination is inconclusive, then the opinion of Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC shall stand. Any disputes, including proposed returns, must be brought to our attention no later than 2 days after receipt of the lot(s) by the Buyer and BEFORE return shipment to us, with any applicable refunds to be made immediately upon receipt of the returned item(s) by us. All returns must be received by us in unaltered condition and in their original, unopened, sealed flips no later than one month after the date of the first auction session (note that late remittance, therefore, can negate return privileges). Any refunds for returns paid for by credit card will be subject to a 3% return fee. In the event of loss or damage, Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC’s liability shall be limited to the hammer price plus buyer’s fee only. Lots may be inspected at our private office in Winter Park by appointment only during our office hours of Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. High-quality photos of all items are viewable on our website and on iCollector 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All photographs in the catalog and online are of the actual lots being sold but may not be actual size or to scale. Color and brightness of online photos may vary according to your monitor and video-card specifications. For any won lots that are sent to a Florida address, Florida sales tax (6% to 7.5%, depending on your county) will be added to all purchases of items that are NOT coins or bullion. Coins and bullion are also taxed if the total coin and/or bullion purchase is less than $500. All bidders and consignors acknowledge and agree that the Auctioneer (Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC) does NOT guarantee that auctions will be unimpaired, uninterrupted or error-free and accordingly shall not be liable for such eventualities. Any errors in the printed catalog will be rectified on the website and iCollector as they come to our attention, and those corrected listings shall be deemed the binding descriptions at the time of the auction. The Auctioneer in its sole and absolute discretion may accept or decline any bid, remove bids and reopen bidding, withdraw lots, or change lot sequence or bidding increments at any time, even after the winning bid and winning bidder have been announced. Any bidding disputes shall be adjudicated by the Auctioneer, whose decision shall be deemed binding and final. This auction is conducted in accordance with the auction laws of the State of Florida. The licensed auctioneer is Daniel Frank Sedwick, AU#3635, AB#2592. The Auctioneer and Bidder agree that the venue for all claims and disputes shall be the applicable court having jurisdiction in Orange County in the State of Florida, and that the prevailing party shall be entitled to all attorneys fees and costs.

A NOTE ABOUT THE ORDER As the world’s leading purveyors of New World cobs and shipwreck coins, we have always separated and highlighted our cob and shipwreck offerings from the rest of what we sell. We have preserved that arrangement in our auctions as well, with cobs presented in order of establishment of each mint (the rare and unusual mints at the end) and the shipwreck coins, ingots and artifacts presented in chronological order by wreck.

REFERENCES CITED Where possible, in the description for each lot we supply one or more numbers in reference to acknowledged publications in the field. References used in this catalog include the following: CT = Calicó’s Numismática española (2008), formerly by Calicó and Trigo (nine previous editions). KM = Krause-Mishler’s Standard Catalog of World Coins, various editions, including Spain, Portugal and the New World. Restrepo = Restrepo’s Monedas de Colombia, 1619-2006, second edition (2006). S = Sedwick’s The Practical Book of Cobs, fourth edition (2007). Spink = Spink’s (formerly Seaby’s) Coins of England and the United Kingdom, forty-first edition (2006). A list of other, more specialized references used in our catalogs is provided upon request.

COIN GRADING and DESCRIPTIVE TERMS From best to worst, UNC is Uncirculated, AU is Almost Uncirculated, XF is Extra Fine, VF is Very Fine, F is Fine, VG is Very Good, and G is Good, with Fair and Poor below that. (“About” or “A” means the coin is just shy of the indicated grade.  Mint State refers to lustrous, choice UNC coins.) We do not always assign numismatic grades to sea-salvage and land-burial coins, which were usually Uncirculated (or close to it) before the effects of corrosion and/or cleaning. Corrosion is usually assessed, from least to most, as follows: none, minimal, light, moderate, and heavy. Also note that we sometimes use the abbreviations E for escudos and R for reales in the listings for Spanish and Spanish colonial items.

A NOTE ABOUT PHOTOS Coin photos in this catalog are generally shown at actual size, with the exception of large lots, which are often reduced, as are most medals, paper money, artifacts, documents, artwork and media. Photos of coins in the most recent NGC capsules have four white intrusions into the rims of the coins due to a special design meant to enable viewing of the edges of those coins.

We encourage bidders to examine lots in person at our premises in Winter Park, Florida (by appointment only).

TREASURE, WORLD & U.S. COIN AUCTION #13 Live on the Internet, Wednesday and Thursday, May 1-2, 2013 With this auction we are proud to present the first part of the New England Collection of Brazilian coins. This expertly assembled type-collection covers some of the most difficult areas of Brazilian coins, mainly from the Bahia mint, which is by far rarer than Rio, with many finest-known pieces and unique dates and varieties. The core of this collection was acquired in the 1940s to 1970s, many of the coins handled and resold by the famous numismatist Kurt Prober. The New England Collection will be long remembered for its unique key pieces and the quality of coins that are rarely found in such nice condition. In this first offering we feature small-denomination Bahia gold, the highlight being the extremely rare and finest-known 1600 reis of 1768-B in AU 58 (lot 152). But did you see the title of this auction? We have added “U.S.” to it, for we are including a separate session dedicated to U.S. coins in our auctions. We have always offered U.S. coins, but this time we have a large consignment from a continuing source, so we hope to expand this section significantly over the course of the next several auctions, starting with a live floor auction this fall. While treasure has always been our specialty (and there are plenty of U.S. shipwreck coins out there, by the way), the fact is that U.S. coins are extremely popular and very well researched. Note in particular the 1866-S no-motto double eagle (lot 318) and the presidential gold lifesaving medal of 1900 (lot 361). Take a close look because we just may have that date or rarity you need! As usual, the auction starts with gold cobs, more than 90 of them, most from shipwrecks and some rather choice. In World Gold Coins we feature several finest-known colonial milled gold coins, like lots 261 and 262, a pair of Lima bust 4 escudos 1762JM in MS 61 and 1770JM in AU 58. Ingots are a big feature of this auction too, with large silver bars from several wrecks this time (particularly Atocha and Maravillas) and gold cuts and nuggets from all over the world. Be sure to check out the 1.2-lb (troy) solid-gold disk from the Luz wreck of 1752 (lot 394). Our Shipwreck Silver Coins section is one of the largest we have ever presented, with well over 500 lots from dozens of different wrecks. If you collect shipwreck coins, this is your main event! Note in particular a huge, 30-pound clump of 8R from the Leocadia wreck (lot 911), in addition to several large, wholesale lots. The Silver Cobs sections of Mexico, Lima, Potosí and other mints contains several very rare and interesting items, particularly Potosí Royals (round presentation pieces), like the 8R of 1657E, 1696VR, 1707Y and 1721Y (lots 1231, 1240, 1249 and 1255) and the 4R of 1703Y (lot 1266). Also in Potosí we feature a unique Philip II 1/4R of assayer M (lot 1224). In addition to unusually large offerings in Mexican 1733-4 klippes and Guatemala cobs, we feature an extremely rare Bogotá 8R of 1702VA (lot 1357) and two very rare Panama cobs. The World Silver Coins section contains selections from practically every Latin American country. Of particular note is an extremely rare die-variety Venezuela 1/8 real of 1812 (lot 1829). Many condition-census and finest-known slabbed pieces stand out as well. Last but not least, our exclusive artifacts sections features several high-end treasures, like a gold medallion and chain from the 1715 Fleet (lot 1910) and a silver tray from 1793 presented to a captain for the “capture of French privateers” (lot 1970), as well as the usual cross-section of simply “neat stuff.” As always, there is something here for everyone. Good luck, bidders, and enjoy the pursuit of treasure! The Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC production team: Daniel Sedwick, Agustín (Augi) García-Barneche and Cori Sedwick Downing

SHIPWRECK (AND HOARD) HISTORIES Throughout this catalog we offer coins, ingots and artifacts from many dozens of different shipwrecks and hoards—”treasure” in the truest sense. So as not to break up the flow of the catalog in the listings, we offer the history behind each wreck here in chronological order. Some lots in the catalog do not have histories here either because we have no further information or what we do know is brief enough to include with the lots. Please feel free to contact us for more information about any of these wrecks or about shipwrecks or treasure in general. Also be sure to check out our new Virtual Shipwreck and Hoard Map on the web at http://www.sedwickcoins.com/map/map.html.

“Golden Fleece wreck,” sunk ca. 1550 in the northern Caribbean

Spanish 1554 Fleet sunk off Padre Island, Texas The 1554 Fleet consisted of four caravels, the San Andrés, the Santa María de Yciar, the San Estéban, and the Espíritu Santo, all but the first of which foundered off what is now Padre Island in a violent storm. There were many survivors, but natives killed nearly all of them. Much of the treasure was salvaged soon afterward by the Spanish. In the 1960s two of the ships were rediscovered and salvaged by an out-of-state company, causing controversy by removing what Texans thought should belong to their state. (The third wreck-site was apparently obliterated by a dredging operation in the late 1940s on what is known as the Mansfield Cut, a manmade inlet.) Texas conducted its own excavations on the two sites in the 1970s. The 1554 Fleet wrecks have yielded almost exclusively Mexican coinage of Carlos-Juana (up to and including assayer S), some of which still washes up on the beaches of Padre Island. Even when found on the beach, these coins are illegal to own in Texas, which has declared them all to be the property of the State, but they do trade freely elsewhere. Uncleaned specimens (mostly beach finds) are distinctively rusty in color and therefore are usually distinguishable from coins from the “Golden Fleece wreck” above.

This wreck was nicknamed for a royal stamping (“Golden Fleece”) on several of the gold “finger” bars (ingots) it yielded. Practically all the coins from this wreck were Mexican Carlos-Juana silver coins (all assayers prior to S), including several rarities, the most important being three specimens of the Rincón “Early Series” 8 reales of 1538, the very first 8 reales ever struck in the New World (the best of which achieved a record in 2006 for the highest amount ever paid at auction for a Spanish colonial coin: $373,750!). To date the finders of the wreck have not identified the wreck or disclosed its exact location, but they affirm it was in international waters in the northern Caribbean. Though it was a relatively small find of a few thousand coins at most, it has been the primary source for Mexican Carlos-Juana coins on the market since the mid-1990s. Perhaps more impressive than the coins from this wreck are the few dozen gold and silver ingots it has yielded, all of which have entered the market exclusively through Daniel Frank Sedwick. The varying purities of these bars are reminiscent of the “tumbaga” bars (see above), although the later gold ingots were been cast in somewhat standard shapes (“fingers”) and sizes. The silver ingots from this wreck, popularly known as “splashes,” were simply poured onto the ground, leaving a round, flat mound of silver that was subsequently stamped with a tax stamp in the form of a crowned C for King Charles I and/ or a fineness in the usual block Roman numerals in parts per 2400, much like the karat system we use today. The gold ingots also show a fineness marking, but no tax stamps or other markings, in parts per 24, with a dot being a quarter karat. Many of the silver and gold ingots from this wreck were cut into two or more parts, presumably to divide into separate accounts.

Unidentified ca.-1554 wreck off Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic In 1554 the Spanish fleet coming from Mexico, consisting of four caravels, the San Andrés, the Santa María de Yciar, the San Estéban, and the Espíritu Santo, hit a violent storm and foundered off of what is now Padre Island, Texas, where it is known that all but the first mentioned sank. The one ship that escaped, the San Andrés, did make it to Havana, but just barely, and its treasure had to be offloaded onto other vessels for the journey through the Bahama Channel and up the Straits of Florida and back to Spain. Archival records in Spain indicate that not all of the treasure from the San Andrés made it there, however. In addition to a documented loss off Portugal, there is some evidence that these ships were hit by another storm and lost somewhere in the northern Caribbean, at least one of them hitting the east coast of Florida and being salvaged by the Ais Indians. A few coins found on the east coast of Florida in recent decades, particularly in the vicinity of Cape Canaveral, seem to confirm this. Archival records also indicate that some of the treasure from the San Andrés was brought to and left at Puerto Rico to be retrieved later in the 1550s. The material we are seeing on the market today (coins, ingots and some artifacts like plates with markings) is identical to what was found off Texas, so it MUST have come from the same 1554 shipment originally, and is therefore most likely the part that was offloaded from the San Andrés in Havana. Because the salvagers say the source is somewhere off the Dominican Republic, it may have more to do with the part that was left in Puerto Rico than with the losses in the Bahama Channel.

Santiago, sunk in 1585 on the Bassas da India atoll between

Fisher and his divers, who recovered the bulk of the treasure in 1985 and thereby unleashed the largest supply of silver cobs and ingots the market has ever seen. Well over 100,000 shield-type cobs were found in all denominations above the half real, the great majority of them from Potosí, as were also the approximately 1,000 silver ingots (most the size of bread loaves). A handful of gold 1- and 2-escudos cobs were also recovered, mostly from mainland Spanish mints, but also a few from Colombia, officially the first gold coins ever struck in the New World. The Atocha was also the source for most or all of the first silver cobs struck in Colombia, as well as a few early coins from Mexico, Lima, Spain and even Panama. Even more significant were the many gold ingots, jewelry items, emeralds and other artifacts. Because of Mel Fisher’s huge publicity and because much of the treasure was distributed to investors at high ratios compared to their investment amounts, the coins from the Atocha have always sold for much more—anywhere from 2 times to 10 times—than their nonsalvage counterparts, even in the numismatic market. (The “glamour market” in tourist areas elevates these coins to as much as twenty times their base numismatic value!) Individually numbered certificates with photos of each coin are critical to the retention of an Atocha coin’s enhanced value. Accompanying barcode tags with the coins also make it possible to replace lost certificates through a database system at the Fisher operation in Key West. With some exceptions each certificate also specifies the coin’s Grade, from 1 (highest) to 4 (lowest), a highly subjective evaluation of corrosive damage and overall quality. Most Atocha silver coins are also recognizable by their shiny brightness, the result of a somewhat controversial cleaning and polishing process catering more to non-collectors than to serious numismatists.

Mozambique and Madagascar This relatively obscure wreck sank on a reef at night due to pilot error, following which the captain and crew absconded with the one useable lifeboat, leaving some 400 or more passengers to perish on the wreck. The Santiago was found again and salvaged in the late 1970s by Ernest Erich Klaar and eventually yielded thousands of silver cobs (marketed in the 1980s) of both Spain and Spanish America (particularly the mints of Seville and Mexico). This shipwreck is also numismatically notable as one of only two wrecks (along with the Atocha of 1622) to have produced the extremely rare cobs of the Panama mint.

Unidentified (presumably Spanish) wreck sunk ca. 1590 off the Yucatán peninsula of Mexico Salvaged surreptitiously by Florida divers, this wreck yielded Philip II cobs of Mexico, Lima and Potosí, some in remarkably good condition. Many of this wreck’s coins are recognizable by their jagged, truncated edges (from corrosion) with pristine interior details. Without consideration of that characteristic pattern of corrosion, the coins from this wreck can pass for Atocha (1622) coins, which is how many of them were successfully sold with fraudulent Atocha certificates in the 1990s. San Martín, sunk in 1618 off the east coast of Florida Known locally as the “Green Cabin wreck,” the San Martín, sunk in a storm on its way to Spain from Havana, was the almiranta (the Admiral’s ship, effectively the rear guard of any Spanish convoy) of the Honduran Fleet of 1618. As that Fleet was nowhere near the size of the fleets from Mexico and South America, the San Martín was not carrying a large amount of coins or other treasure, most of which was salvaged by the Spanish after the sinking anyway. Modern salvage efforts on the site since the 1960s, as well as finds on the beach opposite the wreck, have yielded a few Mexican and Potosi cobs in generally poor condition.

“Rill Cove wreck,” sunk ca. 1618 off Cornwall, England The name and nationality of the ship are unknown and even the date of sinking is not certain. All we know is that records of its local salvage began in 1618. After rediscovery of the wreck by Ken Simpson and Mike Hall in 1975, eventually some 3,000 coins were recovered and sold, all silver cobs, mostly Mexican, but also from Potosí and Spain. Most of the coins are thin from corrosion but with dark toning on fields to enhance details. Because it is rather early, this wreck has yielded several important rarities like the F-oD dual-assayer issue from Mexico.

Santa Margarita, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida From the same hurricane-stricken 1622 Fleet as the Atocha (above), the Santa Margarita sank on a reef within sight of the Atocha and was found in 1626 by Spanish salvagers, who recovered only roughly half its treasure. The other half was found by Mel Fisher and company in 1980. Margarita’s treasures were similar to those found on the Atocha, with fewer coins in comparatively worse condition overall (yet not as harshly cleaned afterward). As with Atocha coins, original Fisher certificates are critical to the premium value for these coins, which is on par with Atocha coins. In 2008 divers with the subcontractor company Blue Water Recovery found more gold on the Santa Margarita and also a lead box stuffed full of pearls.

Atocha, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida Arguably the most famous of all Spanish galleons salvaged in our time, the Atocha was the almiranta of the 1622 Fleet, which left Havana several weeks late and ran afoul of a hurricane. Eight of the 28-ship fleet were lost, wrecked on the reefs between the Dry Tortugas and the Florida Keys or sunk in deeper water. Five people survived the sinking of the Atocha and were rescued by another vessel, but the wreck itself was scattered after another hurricane hit the site exactly one month later. The Spanish were never able to salvage what was one of the richest galleons ever to sail. The cargo of the Atocha did not see light again until 1971, when the first coins were found by the now-famous salvager Mel

São José, sunk in 1622 off Mozambique The São José was the almiranta of a fleet carrying Francisco da Gama (grandson of the famous Vasco da Gama) from Lisbon, Portugal, to his new post as Viceroy in Goa, India, when the ships were attacked at night on July 22 by an Anglo-Dutch fleet off Mozambique. Suffering from disease, the captain and crew of the São José at first tried to ground her but ended up sinking in deeper water, taking many chests of Spanish silver with her. The English and Dutch made off with some of the cargo and 100 prisoners from the São José, with hundreds more people and the bulk of the treasure lost to the sea. In 2003 the salvage company Arqueonautas located the wreck and eventually recovered just over 20,000 silver cobs (all 8 and 4 reales) from Spain, Mexico, and South America.

“Lucayan Beach wreck,” sunk ca. 1628 off Grand Bahama Island Since the accidental discovery in 1964 of around 10,000 silver cobs dating up to and including 1628 in 10 feet of water just 1,300 yards from the Lucayan Beach Hotel, the mystery of identifying the lost vessel has never been solved. Because of the date, popular opinion associates the wreck with the taking of the Spanish 1628 Fleet in Matanzas Bay, Cuba, by the Dutch pirate and national hero Piet Heyn, who reported losing two of the vessels on the way back to Europe. Three names proposed for the ship(s) by various sellers over the years were the Van Lynden, the Santa Gertrude (or Gertrudis) and the Romario, with scant evidence to support any of the attributions. Spanish archival research suggested a new name, Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, which sank in that general area in 1624. Since dates on the recovered coins extend past 1624, this attribution must be incorrect. A more recent recovery in the 1990s off Lucayan Beach turned up similar material, but no further clues as to the ship’s (or ships’) identity. Practically all of the coins have been Mexican 8 and 4 reales of the assayer-D period, some in quite nice condition and a few with clear dates, which are rare. Expect to pay a modest premium for specimens in white clamshell boxes produced by Spink & Son (London) in the 1960s for a promotion that capped off years of disagreements between the salvagers, their backers and the Bahamian government.

“Mesuno hoard,” lost ca. 1636 in the Magdalena River near Bartolomeo de Honda, Colombia The name of this hoard comes from “El Mesuno,” the local name for a bend in the river where, in 1935, many hundreds of Bogotá cob 2 escudos were found in the riverbank. The latest of the coins, most of which did not show their peripheral dates, was 1636. No one knows how or why the hoard was lost; but it is known that Honda was where freshly struck coins from the Bogotá mint were offloaded from mules and put aboard riverboats to take the coins to Cartagena, on the Caribbean coast, where the coins were loaded onto galleons ultimately headed for Spain. Whether due to the sinking of a vessel or not, the “Mesuno Hoard” has been one of the world’s most important sources of gold cobs—basically the only source for Bogotá gold cobs of the early 1630s. Concepción , sunk in 1641 off the northeast coast of

Hispaniola The Concepción was one of the most significant Spanish wrecks of all time, serving the Spanish with a loss of over 100 tons of silver and gold treasure. The almiranta of a 21-ship fleet, the Concepción was already in poor repair when the Europe-bound fleet encountered a

storm in September of 1641, leaving her disabled and navigating under makeshift sails amid disagreement among its pilots about their location. Weeks later, she grounded on a reef in an area now named the Silver Shoals, just east of another shoal known as the Abrojos, which the pilots were trying to avoid. After another storm hit the wrecked ship and the admiral and officers left in the ship’s only longboat, the remaining crew resorted to building rafts from the ship’s timbers. Survivors’ accounts pointed to drowning, starvation and even sharks for the approximately 300 casualties. In the fallout that ensued, none of the survivors could report the wreck’s location with accuracy, so it sat undisturbed until New England’s William Phipps found it in 1687 and brought home tons of silver and some gold, to the delight of his English backers. The Concepción was found again in 1978 by Burt Webber, Jr., whose divers recovered some 60,000 silver cobs, mostly Mexican 8 and 4 reales, and also some Potosí and rare Colombian cobs, including more from the Cartagena mint than had been found on any other shipwreck. Unlike the Maravillas 15 years later, the Concepción did not yield any gold cobs in our time, and any significant artifacts found were retained by the government of the Dominican Republic who oversaw the salvage. The bulk of the silver cobs found on the Concepción were heavily promoted, even in department stores. The site is still worked from time to time with limited success. Capitana (Jesús María de la Limpia Concepción), sunk

in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador This wreck was the largest loss ever experienced by the Spanish South Seas (Pacific) Fleet, of which the Jesus María de la Limpia Concepción was the capitana (“captain’s ship” or lead vessel) in 1654. Official records reported the loss of 3 million pesos of silver (2,212 ingots, 216 chests of coins, and 22 boxes of wrought silver), augmented to a total of as much as 10 million pesos when contraband and private consignments were taken into account. By comparison, the entire annual silver production in Peru at that time was only about 6-7 million pesos! Obviously overloaded, the Capitana sank technically due to pilot error, which drove the ship onto the reefs south of the peninsula known as Punta Santa Elena, a geographic feature the pilot thought he had cleared. Twenty people died in the disaster. For eight years afterward, Spanish salvagers officially recovered over 3 million pesos of coins and bullion (with probably much more recovered off the record), leaving only an unreachable lower section for divers to find in our time. Ironically, the main salvager of the Capitana in the 1650s and early 1660s was none other than the ship’s silvermaster, Bernardo de Campos, who was responsible for the ship’s being overloaded with contraband in the first place. The wreck was rediscovered in the mid-1990s and salvaged (completely, according to some) in 1997. After a 50-50 split with the Ecuadorian government in 1998, investors sold most of their half of the more than 5,000 coins recovered at auction in 1999. Almost exclusively Potosí 8 and 4 reales, the coins were a healthy mix of countermarked issues of 1649-1652, transitional issues of 1652, and post-transitional pillars-and-waves cobs of 1653-1654, many in excellent condition and expertly conserved.

As an interesting footnote, the very coins salvaged from the Capitana by the Spanish in 1654 were lost again on the Maravillas wreck of 1656 (see next), and some of those coins salvaged from the Maravillas were lost again in the wreck of the salvage vessel Madama do Brasil off Gorda Cay (Bahamas) in 1657. Furthering Spain’s woes was the destruction of another treasure fleet in 1657 by English marauders fresh from a victory in the Bay of Cádiz off Santa Cruz on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Maravillas, sunk in 1656 off Grand Bahama Island As the almiranta of the homebound Spanish fleet in January of 1656, the Nuestra Señora de las Maravillas was officially filled with over five million pesos of treasure (and probably much more in contraband, as was usually the case). That treasure included much of the silver salvaged from the South Seas Fleet’s Capitana of 1654 that wrecked on Chanduy Reef off Ecuador (see above). The ill-fated treasure sank once again when the Maravillas unexpectedly ran into shallow water and was subsequently rammed by one of the other ships of its fleet, forcing the captain to try to ground the Maravillas on a nearby reef on Little Bahama Bank off Grand Bahama Island. In the ensuing chaos, exacerbated by strong winds, most of the 650 people on board died in the night, and the wreckage scattered. Spanish salvagers soon recovered almost half a million pesos of treasure, followed by more recoveries over the next several decades, yet with over half of the official cargo still unfound. The first rediscovery of the Maravillas in the twentieth century was by Robert Marx and his company, Seafinders, in 1972, whose finds were featured in an auction by Schulman in New York in 1974. Included among the coins in this sale were some previously unknown Cartagena silver cobs of 1655 and countermarked Potosí coinage of 1649-1651 and 1652 transitionals, in addition to many Mexican silver cobs and a few Bogotá cob 2 escudos. The second big salvage effort on the Maravillas was achieved by Herbert Humphreys and his company, Marex, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, resulting in two big sales by Christie’s (London) in 1992 and 1993, which featured many Bogotá cob 2 escudos, more Mexico and Potosí silver cobs, and several important artifacts. The most recent big sale of Maravillas finds, presumably from one of the many salvage efforts from the 1970s and 1980s, took place in California in 2005, again with a good quantity of Bogotá cob 2 escudos. The wreck area is still being searched today, but officially the Bahamian government has not granted any leases on the site since the early 1990s. It is possible the bulk of the treasure is still to be found. San Miguel el Arcángel (“Jupiter wreck”), sunk in 1659 off

Jupiter Inlet, east coast of Florida As well known as this wreck has become among the Florida treasure community and shipwreck collectors around the world, surprisingly little has been written about it, and not one major auction has been dedicated to its finds. The San Miguel was not a big treasure galleon in a huge convoy; rather, she was a lone aviso, a smaller ship for carrying letters and other communications quickly back to Spain. But unlike most avisos, the San Miguel was carrying some important treasure, as it was in the right time and place to take on samples of the unauthorized “Star of Lima” coinage of 1659 for the King to see. In October the San Miguel encountered a hurricane off the southeast coast of Florida, grounded on a sandbar, and broke apart rapidly, leaving only 34 survivors among the 121 people on board. Those survivors were all quickly captured by

natives (Ais) and therefore had no opportunity to salvage the scattered wreck. Today only parts of the wreck of the San Miguel have been found, discovered by lifeguard Peter Leo in 1987, in about 10 to 20 feet of water and under as much as 20 feet of sand. Salvage is ongoing. Besides a couple of gold ingots and one large silver ingot, the yield to date has been modest, mostly low-end silver cobs of Mexico and Potosí, a good amount of the rare 1659 “Star of Lima” silver coinage, a couple Bogotá gold cobs, and some rare Cartagena silver cobs. All were sold through various dealers and private transactions. If the hull of the ship is ever found, as the salvagers think it will be, the market may finally see some of the gold cobs of the “Star of Lima” issue of 1659.

Unidentified wreck sunk ca. 1671 in Seville Harbor, Spain The city of Seville is situated on the Guadalquivir River, about 50 miles inland from the ocean port of Cádiz, where treasure from the New World arrived on sea-going galleons. From there the treasure sailed upriver by boat to Seville. Sometime in 1671 it is believed one of these boats sank outside Seville, or at least its treasure was lost there somehow in the river, for in the mid-1990s a large hoard of obviously salvaged silver cob 8 and 4 reales of Potosí, none dated later than 1671, and mostly in decent condition, began to emerge from markets in Spain without provenance but reportedly found in Seville Harbor during the installation of a fiber-optic cable across the river. It should be noted that the same type of coins (with characteristics identical to those from the Seville wreck) have been sold in recent years as having come from the so-called “Señorita de Santa Cristina” of 1672 off Cádiz, but we can find no record of this ship or its salvage. Consolación (“Isla de Muerto shipwreck”), sunk in 1681 off

Santa Clara Island, Ecuador When salvage first began on this wreck in 1997, it was initially believed to be the Santa Cruz and later called El Salvador y San José, sunk in August of 1680; however, research by Robert Marx after the main find in subsequent years confirmed its proper name and illuminated its fascinating history. Intended to be part of the Spanish “South Seas Fleet” of 1681, which left Lima’s port of Callao in April, the Consolación apparently was delayed and ended up traveling alone. At the Gulf of Guayaquil, off modern-day Ecuador, the Consolación encountered English pirates, led by Bartholomew Sharpe, who forced the Spanish galleon to sink on a reef off Santa Clara Island (later nicknamed “Isla de Muerto,” or Dead Man’s Island). Before the pirates could get to the ship, the crew set fire to her and tried to escape to the nearby island without success. Angered by their inability to seize the valuable cargo of the Consolación, Sharpe’s men killed the Spaniards and tried in vain to recover the treasure through the efforts of local fishermen. Spanish attempts after that were also fruitless, so the treasure of the Consolación sat undisturbed until our time. When vast amounts of silver coins were found in the area starting in the 1990s, by local entrepreneurs Roberto Aguirre and Carlos Saavedra (“ROBCAR”) and the government of Ecuador in 1997 under mutual agreement, the exact name and history of the wreck were unknown, and about 8,000 of the coins (all Potosí silver cobs) were subsequently sold at auction by Spink New York in December 2001 as simply “Treasures from the ‘Isla de Muerto.’” Most of the coins offered were of low quality and poorly preserved but came with

were acquired by famous treasure hunter Carl Fismer, who then teamed up with video producer Robert Lewis Knecht to travel to Sri Lanka and record the story again from Clarke himself. Arthur C. Clarke died in 2008, but not before diving one more time with Fismer and Knecht. Merestein, sunk in 1702 off South Africa This Dutch East Indiaman was outbound when she tried to put into Saldanha Bay to alleviate rampant scurvy on board the ship. On April 3, 1702, she hit reefs on the southwest point of Jutten Island and within hours was smashed to pieces. Only 99 of the 200 people aboard the Merestein survived. On board the Merestein were several chests of silver coins for trade in the East Indies and for which immediate salvage plans were undertaken. But Jutten Island is no easy dive, and all attempts were abandoned until modern times. The wreck was rediscovered and salvaged in the early 1970s, yielding almost exclusively Dutch silver ducatoons from the 1600s. The number of coins found in the 1970s was around 15,000 and is believed to be nowhere near all of the treasure that was lost. Thousands more coins and artifacts were recovered by the salvage company Sealit in the 1990s.

individually numbered photo-certificates. Later, after the provenance had been properly researched and better conservation methods were used, a Florida syndicate arranged to have ongoing finds from this wreck permanently encapsulated in hard-plastic holders by the authentication and grading firm ANACS, with the wreck provenance clearly stated inside the “slab”; more recent offerings have bypassed this encapsulation. Ongoing salvage efforts have good reason to be hopeful, as the manifest of the Consolación stated the value of her registered cargo as 146,000 pesos in silver coins in addition to silver and gold ingots, plus an even higher sum in contraband, according to custom. Joanna, sunk in 1682 off South Africa An English East Indiaman on her way to Surat on the west coast of India, the Joanna separated from her convoy and sank in rough seas on a reef off the southernmost tip of South Africa on June 8, 1682, sending 10 people to their death. Eventually 104 survivors reached the Dutch colony of Cape Town, from which a salvage party was soon dispatched. The Joanna’s cargo consisted of 70 chests of silver coins, of which the salvage party reported having recovered only about 28,000 guilders’ worth. In 1982 the wreck was rediscovered by a group of South African divers led by Gavin Clackworthy, who brought up silver ingots (discs) and more than 23,000 silver cobs, most of them Mexican 4 and 8 reales of Charles II in generally low grade, but a few showing bold, formerly very rare dates 1679-1681. Over the past two decades, these cobs have entered the market from both private dealers and auctions, but always in relatively small quantities at a time. Almost all the coins are in very worn condition, usually thin and nearly featureless, but without the heavy encrustation and pitting that characterize Caribbean finds.

“Taj Mahal treasure,” sunk ca. 1702 off Sri Lanka The story of the so-called “Taj Mahal treasure” is more about modern romance than historical events, for it was famously salvaged by the author Arthur C. Clarke in 1961-3, while he was living in Sri Lanka and scouting for film sites. Childhood polio had left Clarke wheelchair-bound, but he could dive, and that is just what he did when some boys told him and his associate Mike Wilson about the find on the Great Basses Reef. The adventure that ensued is well documented in Clarke’s 1964-5 books The Treasure of the Great Reef and Indian Ocean Treasure. Ten coin-clumps were recovered from this unidentified wreck, each coin a silver rupee dated AH1113 (1702 AD) from the time of Shah Aurangzeb Alamgir, the sixth and last great mogul emperor of India, and the son of Shah Jahan, who had built the Taj Mahal in mid-1600s. Two of the coin-clumps are permanently ensconced in museums—one in the Smithsonian and one in the Arthur C. Clarke archives (“Clarkives”) in Taunton, England. A third clump was recently featured on the TV show Pawn Stars. All the rest of the clumps were broken up and the coins have been marketed since 1992, when they

Association, sunk in 1707 off the Scilly Isles, southwest of

England The sinking of this ship and four others in a fleet of 21 returning from the Mediterranean was one of the worst British naval disasters of all time. The Association sank on October 22 under stormy conditions after what can only be described as guesswork navigation that led the ships straight onto the rocks of the Scilly Isles, where as many as 2,000 sailors lost their lives as a result. The admiral of the fleet, Sir Cloudisley Shovell, whose ten chests of personal wealth (in addition to several others) were rumored to be aboard the Association, was one of the casualties of the sinking, although legend has it he reached shore alive, only to be murdered there by a local woman for a ring on his finger. The wrecksite was located in 1967 by British Navy divers, touching off a frenzy of activity on the site for years to come. Cannons and a few coins were raised in the 1960s, but it was not till 1973 that a significant amount of coins were found (8,000 in that year alone). These coins, mostly British silver and gold but also many Spanish and Spanish-American silver cobs, were sold at auction beginning in 1969 and into the early 1970s. The cobs presented an eclectic mix, mostly 8 reales from the 1650s forward (even a “Royal” presentation issue from 1676), but from nearly all mints (especially Lima and Potosí), some even left in as-found conglomerate form combined with British coins. It is interesting to note that parts of this wreck, like others in the area, were flattened hard to the muddy sea floor by huge boulders that still roll around with the currents, making for dangerous and difficult salvage. DeLiefde, sunk in 1711 off the Shetland Islands, north of

Scotland

12

During the War of Spanish Succession it was deemed safer to take the northern route around Scotland than to skirt French coasts in the English Channel, but in so doing the Dutch East Indiaman DeLiefde wrecked on a reef in the Out Skerries due to faulty navigation under overcast skies, leaving only one survivor to tell the tale. Prompt salvage attempts by the VOC to recover the cargo of silver and gold coins turned up nothing—looting by locals was greatly suspected.


Modern expeditions in the 1960s, however, located the ship and yielded upwards of 4000 coins (mostly silver “rider” ducatoons and gold ducats) in 1966-1968, many of which were sold at auction by Glendining (London) in 1969.

Beach), “Sandy Point” (Vero Beach), “Wedge” (Fort Pierce), and “Colored Beach” (Fort Pierce). Regardless of the exact site of origin, a great majority of the coins and artifacts are sold simply as “1715 Fleet.”

1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida

Islands

The Spanish 1715-Fleet disaster was probably the greatest to befall any of the Spanish treasure fleets in terms of casualties and money, with reports of a loss of 14 million pesos (plus an equal or greater amount in contraband) and as many as 1,000 or more lives. It was a typical case of overloaded Spanish galleons foundering in a hurricane after delayed departure. In effect the 1715 Fleet was a combination of two fleets: the Nueva España (New Spain, i.e., Mexico) Fleet from Mexico and the Tierra Firme (Mainland) Fleet from South America, some 12 or 13 ships in all. Encountering a hurricane on July 30, all the ships were driven shoreward and destroyed except for a lone vessel, the tag-along French ship Grifón, which sailed onward without incident. Hundreds of the crew and passengers lost their lives while other hundreds of survivors improvised a camp on shore to await aid from the Spanish fort at St. Augustine, to which a party was sent. Salvage commenced soon afterward and lasted for several years. Nearly half of the vast treasure (at least the registered part) was recovered and kept in a nearby storehouse. In 1716, a flotilla of British freebooters under Henry Jennings raided the storehouse and carried off some 350,000 pesos of the treasure to Jamaica. The Spaniards, however, resumed operations until they could salvage no more and quit in 1719. The rest of the treasure remained on the ocean floor until our time. Modern salvage on the 1715 Fleet began in the late 1950s, when local resident Kip Wagner found a piece of eight on the beach after a hurricane and decided to pursue the source. With the help of a 1774 chart and an army-surplus metal detector, he located the original Spanish salvage camp and unearthed coins and artifacts. Then, using a rented airplane to spot the underwater wrecksite from the air and check the location again by boat, Kip found the source of the coins and soon formed a team of divers and associates backed by a salvage permit from the State of Florida. All of this took place over a period of years before it evolved into the Real Eight Company, whose ranks later included such luminaries as Robert Marx and the flamboyant Mel Fisher. The Fisher family still sub-leases the sites to hopeful salvagers today. The vast treasures yielded by the 1715 Fleet in our time fall into nearly every category, from coins to jewelry, precious stones to cannons, religious artifacts to Chinese porcelains. The 1715 Fleet remains the world’s largest source for New World gold cobs, while the silver cobs recovered number in the hundreds of thousands. Promotions of the coins by Real Eight and others have spanned the decades, in addition to significant auctions by Henry Christensen (1964); Parke-Bernet Galleries (1967) and Sotheby Parke Bernet (1973); the Schulman Coin and Mint (1972 and 1974); Bowers and Ruddy Galleries (1977); and even the U.S. Customs Service (2003). Despite a wealth of publications pertaining to the 1715 Fleet with names of the ships and the known locations of some of the wrecks, there is no universal agreement as to the identity of the vessel at each wrecksite. In many cases, in fact, it is possible that separate wrecksites represent different parts of the same ship. As a result, salvagers over the decades have resorted to nicknames for the sites based on landmarks, local individuals, and even features from the wrecks themselves, such as (from north to south): “Pines” (Sebastian), “Cabin” (Wabasso), “Cannon” (Wabasso), “Corrigans” (Vero Beach), “Rio Mar” (Vero

This East Indiaman, whose Dutch name means “Castle of Hooge” (a place in modern-day Belgium), was outbound to Batavia (Jakarta) with a load of three tons of silver ingots (15 chests) plus four chests of silver coins, three of which contained nothing but Mexican cobs. Blown off course by a storm, the Slot ter Hooge wrecked on November 19 off Porto Santo Island in the Madeira Islands (northwest of Africa), to the demise of some 221 people on board (only 33 survived). More than half the treasure was salvaged over the next ten years by the famous English inventor John Lethbridge, but the rest was forgotten until our time. In 1974 the wreck was rediscovered by the well-known salvager Robert Sténuit, who recovered many silver ingots and coins, mostly Dutch ducatoons but also some Mexican 8-reales cobs.

Slot ter Hooge, sunk in 1724 off Porto Santo, Madeira

Akerendam, sunk in 1725 off the coast of Norway Separated from her two companion vessels in a heavy storm, the East Indiaman Akerendam foundered off the northern point of Runde Island off the west coast of Norway on March 8, with no survivors among the 200 people on board. Throughout the next several months, five of the 19 chests of coins aboard the Akerendam were recovered, and one of those five had opened up, scattering coins over the wrecksite. No more was found, and the site was forgotten until Norwegian amateur divers rediscovered it in 1972 and brought up almost 40,000 gold and silver coins, with another 16,000 or so found the next year. Ultimately the coins were split between the divers and the Norwegian and Dutch governments, and the divers’ portion was offered as a whole at auction in 1978, following which the coins were largely assembled into leather-bound promotional sets (each consisting of one Dutch gold ducat and up to 23 silver coins, generally Mexican cobs and Dutch ducatoons and minors). Chameau, sunk in 1725 off Nova Scotia, Canada This French man-of-war was attempting to reach Louisburg harbor with a consignment of troops and coins for the French colony when a storm sent her onto the rocks of Cape Breton instead, killing all on board. The main wrecksite was never found until 1961, when Alex Storm spotted cannons on the seabed and led a successful salvage expedition on the site in 1965, yielding many French silver ecus and gold Louis d’ors. The Chameau has been salvaged more recently as well.

1733 Fleet, Florida Keys

13

Much like the 1715-Fleet disaster, the 1733 Fleet was an entire Spanish convoy lost in a hurricane off Florida. However, due to the lesser severity of the 1733 hurricane, which struck the fleet on July 15, and the shallowness of the wrecksites in the Keys, there were many survivors, and four ships remained in good enough condition to be refloated and sent back to Havana. A highly successful salvage effort by the Spanish yielded even more than the 12 million pesos of precious cargo listed on the Fleet’s manifest (thanks to the usual contraband). The wrecks themselves are spread across 80 miles, from north of Key Largo down to south of Duck Key, and include the following galleons (note there is not universal agreement as to which wrecksite


pertains to each galleon, and each name is a contemporaneous abbreviation or nickname): El Pópulo, El Infante, San José, El Rubí (the capitana), Chávez, Herrera, Tres Puentes, San Pedro, El Terri (also spelled Lerri or Herri), San Francisco, El Gallo Indiano (the almiranta), Las Angustias, El Sueco de Arizón, San Fernando, and San Ignacio. This last ship, San Ignacio, is believed to be the source of many silver coins (and even some gold coins) found in a reef area off Deer Key known as “Coffins Patch,” the south-westernmost of all the 1733-Fleet wrecksites. In addition, many other related sites are known, mostly the wrecks of tag-along ships that accompanied the fleet proper. The first and arguably most famous of the wrecks of the 1733 Fleet to be located in modern times was the capitana El Rubí, which was discovered in 1948 and salvaged principally in the 1950s by Art McKee, whose Sunken Treasure Museum on Plantation Key housed his finds for all to see. Unfortunately throughout the next several decades the wrecksites in the Keys became a virtual free-for-all, with many disputes and confrontations, until the government created the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary in 1990. The removal of artifacts from any of the sites is prohibited today. In contrast to the 1715 Fleet, and because of the extensive Spanish salvage in the 1730s, the finds by modern divers have been modest, especially in gold coins, of which there are far more fakes on the market than genuine specimens. Nevertheless, the 1733 Fleet has been a significant source for some of the rare Mexican milled “pillar dollars” of 1732-1733 as well as the transitional “klippe”-type coins of 1733. Vliegenthart, sunk in 1735 off Zeeland, the Netherlands The East Indiaman Vliegenthart (“Flying Hart” in Dutch) had just departed Rammekens for the East Indies when the deadly combination of a northeast gale, a spring tide and pilot error sent her into a sand bank behind her sister-ship Anna Catharina. The latter ship broke apart in the storm while the Vliegenthart, damaged and firing her cannons in distress, slipped off the bank and sank in 10 fathoms of water. All hands on both ships were lost. Contemporaneous salvage under contract with the Dutch East India Company was unsuccessful, but it provided a piece of evidence, a secret map, that emerged from obscurity in 1977. Stemming from that, divers employed by the former London attorney Rex Cowan discovered the wreck in 1981, and in 1983 they found their first coins, one of three chests of Mexican silver and Dutch gold coins (totaling 67,000 guilders or dollar-sized units) for the East India trade aboard the Vliegenthart. The second chest was smashed on the seabed and its contents partially salvaged, while the third chest, intact like the first, came up in 1992. The divers also recovered several smaller boxes of large Dutch silver coins known as “ducatoons,” illegally exported and therefore contraband. Among the silver coins found were thousands of Mexican cobs, predominantly 8 reales, many with clear dates in the early 1730s and in excellent condition. Rooswijk, sunk in 1739 off southeast England Off the southeastern tip of England, just north of the Straits of Dover, the sea hides a most unusual feature known as the Goodwin Sands, where sandbanks appear and disappear unpredictably and move with the tides. Many ships over the centuries have sunk here and silted over, and occasionally one of the wrecks will surface and be discovered. Such is the case with the Rooswijk, a Dutch East Indiaman that foundered on the Goodwin Sands in a storm on December 19, 1739 (by the calendar in use by the British at the time), with all hands and 30 chests of treasure, virtually gone without a trace.

By chance in December 2004, the sands that had swallowed the wreck of the Rooswijk parted and allowed diver Ken Welling to retrieve two complete chests and hundreds of silver bars. Operating in secrecy, salvage continued in 2005 under the direction of Rex Cowan (in agreement with the Dutch and British governments) and is ongoing today. So far, several hundred Mexican silver cobs of the 1720s and early 1730s and transitional “klippes” of 1733-1734, as well as many more hundreds of “pillar dollars” and a smattering of cobs from other mints, have hit the market from this wreck, mostly through auction. Hollandia, sunk in 1743 off the Scilly Isles, southwest of

England Blown off course on her way to the East Indies, the Hollandia struck Gunner Rock and sank in about 110 feet of water about 1½ miles east of it on July 13, 1743. There were no survivors. The first sign of the wreck came in 1971, when divers under Rex Cowan located the wrecksite and within a couple years salvaged more than 35,000 silver coins among the nearly 130,000 guilders (dollar-sized units) recorded to be on board the Hollandia. A great majority of the coins were Mexican “pillar dollars,” but there were also some silver cobs, including the scarce Mexican transitional “klippes” of 1733-1734 and a few Guatemala cobs, in mixed condition. Princess Louisa, sunk in 1743 off the Cape Verde Islands,

west of Africa Laden with 20 chests (69,760 ounces) of Spanish silver, the East Indiaman Princess Louisa fell victim to surprise currents and inaccurate charts and struck a reef and sank off Isla de Maio in the early morning hours of April 18. Forty-two of the 116 people aboard floated to safety on the nearby island, but nothing on the ship could be saved. Contemporaneous salvage never came to fruition. In 1998 and 1999 the wrecksite was located and salvaged by the Arqueonautas firm, whose finds from this wreck have been largely marketed by a Houston coin and jewelry dealer ever since, although some coins were also sold at auction in 20002001. Most of the coins were New World silver cobs from all the mints that were operating in the early 1700s (including rare Bogotá cobs), predominantly minors (smaller than 8 reales), in average condition, with quite a few preserved in as-found multiple-coin clusters. Reijgersdaal, sunk in 1747 off South Africa More popularly known in the U.S. as Reygersdahl, this typical East Indiaman was carrying eight chests of silver coins (nearly 30,000 coins) when she sank on October 25, 1747, between Robben and Dassen Islands. After four-and-a-half months at sea, the crew had anchored there to fetch rock rabbits (“dassies,” for which Dassen Island was named) and other fresh food to relieve massive illness on board the ship, on which some 125 had died and 83 were incapacitated out of 297 people; but in the face of a gale, the anchor-line snapped and the ship foundered on the rocks. Only 20 survived the sinking, and only one incomplete chest of coins was recovered. The area was deemed too dangerous to attempt further salvage. Beginning in 1979, modern salvage on the wreck by the salvage company Sealit yielded thousands of coins (as many as 15,000 by the early 1980s, when protective legislation was enacted in South Africa), mostly in near pristine condition, which have been sold in

14


various auctions and private offerings ever since. A great majority of the coins from this wreck are Mexican pillar dollars in excellent condition, but there were also a few hundred New World silver cobs, including Guatemala cobs, which are rarely seen from shipwrecks. Nuestra Señora de la Luz, sunk in 1752 off Montevideo,

Uruguay Actually a Portuguese vessel leased by the Spanish, the Luz left Buenos Aires in the summer of 1752 with a load of money bound for Spain and had just stopped in Montevideo for provisioning when a strong storm swept her into the coastline, spreading wreckage over a wide area and killing all on board. While over 90% of the treasure was recovered soon afterward, the powder-hold was never found, and as it turns out, that is where some 200,000 pesos (according to later reports) of contraband had been stored. In April 1992, divers working under Rubén Collado began to recover gold coins on a wrecksite in the Río de la Plata, and soon it became clear the wreck in question had to be from 1751 or 1752, as none of the coins was dated later than 1751. The finds, which were split with the Uruguayan government and then sold at auction in New York and Montevideo, consisted of mostly milled (bust-type) 8 escudos from the new mint at Santiago, Chile. Also in these auctions were 95 gold cobs and 353 silver cobs, the former mostly Lima 8 and 4 escudos (but also some Bogotá 2 escudos), and the latter mostly 8 and 4 reales from Potosí (with several more gold and silver cob sold privately). The gold is pristine, but the silver coins all show at least moderate corrosion. Geldermalsen (“Nanking Cargo”), sunk in 1752 in the

South China Sea The Geldermalsen was a Dutch East India Company ship returning to Amsterdam with a cargo of over 160,000 porcelains and 145 gold ingots (in addition to tea and textiles) when she hit a reef and sank on January 3, 1752. In 1985 the wreck was found by Michael Hatcher, and the salvaged material was sold at auction by Christie’s Amsterdam in 1986 as the famous “Nanking Cargo.” Bredenhof, sunk in 1753 off Mozambique The Bredenhof was a Dutch East Indiaman headed to India with 14 barrels of copper “duits” (penny-like coins), 29 chests of silver bars, and one chest of gold ducats. On June 6, 1753, about 13 miles from the eastern coast of Africa and 120 miles south of the Portuguese settlement of Mozambique, the Bredenhof found herself in difficult currents and struck a reef. Amazingly, among the first items jettisoned to try to raise the ship off the reef were some of the chests of silver bars! The gold was taken by the ship’s officers, some of whom survived the trip to Mozambique, but the silver bars and copper coins were lost until modern times, despite salvage attempts in the 1750s. In 1986 divers with the salvage company Sealit found the wreck and recovered hundreds of silver ingots and hundreds of thousands of copper coins, all sold at auction by Christie’s Amsterdam that same year. Nicobar, sunk in 1783 off South Africa One of very few famous shipwrecks of the Danish East India Company, the Nicobar was outbound to India with a load of copper plates from Sweden that were actually a form of coins, inasmuch as

each one bore a date, denomination and mintmark, along with the monogram of the king or queen. Demonetized in 1771, the copper “plate money” became more like ingots, with trade value at the current rate for pure copper. But the Nicobar never reached its destination: After stopping at False Bay to replenish supplies and offload sick crew, the ship left again on July 10, 1783, and ran aground in a storm that night. The wreck was rediscovered in 1987 by local fishermen, who salvaged some 3,000 copper plates, the bulk of which were sold by Ponterio & Associates in California. Cazador, sunk in 1784 off New Orleans, Louisiana The Cazador was a Spanish brig of war headed from Vera Cruz, Mexico, to New Orleans under the direction of Captain Gabriel de Campos y Piñeda. Her cargo of some 450,000 pesos of newly minted silver coins was meant to stabilize the fragile economy in the Spanish possession of Louisiana, which had suffered from the use of French paper currency. The fact that the coins never arrived probably hastened the decision to cede the colony to Napoleon in 1800, soon after which Louisiana was sold to the fledgling United States of America for $15 million. Nobody knows how the Cazador was lost, and no evidence of the ship was found until 1993, when a fishing crew led by Captain Jerry Murphy snagged their net on something about 50 miles south of New Orleans in the Gulf of Mexico. When the net was brought up, it spilled out hundreds of silver coins onto the deck of Jerry’s boat, aptly named Mistake. Shortly thereafter, the fishermen obtained the rights to the find and began recoveries under the name of Grumpy Inc. Halsewell, sunk in 1786 off Dorset, England A British East Indiaman outbound to India, the Halsewell hit bad weather in the English Channel and was blown onto the cliffs on the Dorset coast. She was battered to pieces as minority survivors scrambled into caves and up the cliffs. Local dive teams have salvaged coins and small artifacts from the Halsewell in recent years, but not in any significant quantities. Hartwell, sunk in 1787 off the Cape Verde Islands, west of

Africa On her maiden voyage to China, the British East Indiaman Hartwell was heavily laden with silver when the crew mutinied. After quelling the fight, the captain headed to the Cape Verde Islands to offload the mutineers. Exhausted from the mutiny, the weary sailors ran the ship into a reef off the Island of Boavista, losing the ship entirely. Fortunately all hands were saved. Salvage by the British East India Company 1788-1791 yielded nearly half of the approximately 200,000 ounces of silver cargo on board the Hartwell. Pirates at the time recovered another 40,000 coins. The wrecksite was found again and salvaged by Afrimar in 1994-1996 and by Arqueonautas in 1996-1999, providing the market with Spanish colonial bust-type 8 reales in generally poor condition. Piedmont (“Lyme Bay wreck”), sunk in 1795 in Lyme Bay, south of England One of a huge fleet of 300 ships on their way to the West Indies to suppress a French uprising, the Piedmont was forced into Lyme Bay during a hurricane on November 18, 1795, that scattered and sank the ships of the fleet all along the Dorset coast. The Piedmont and five other ships (Aeolus, Catherine, Golden Grove, Thomas and Venus) broke apart on Chesil Beach and came to be known collectively as the “Lyme

15


Bay wrecks.” An estimated 1,000 men lost their lives in the disaster, including well over a hundred from the Piedmont alone. In the early 1980s, the wrecks were salvaged by divers Selwyn Williams and Les and Julia C. Kent, who discovered many silver cobs of the late 1600s on the wrecksite of the Piedmont. It is presumed that the coins had been captured or recovered from a seventeenth-century wreck and stored in the vaults of the Bank of England for about a century before being transported and subsequently lost again. These coins are usually recognizable by their uniformly dark-gray color, a bit sea-worn but not overly corroded. A significant group of extremely rare Colombian silver cobs from the Piedmont (but not identified as such) was offered at auction in 1995.

Admiral Gardner, sunk in 1809 off the southeast coast of

England Along with her sister-ship Britannia, the English East Indiaman Admiral Gardner was outbound with an immense cargo (48 tons!) of copper coins for circulation in India when both ships sank in a storm on the Goodwin Sands on January 24, 1809. Ten lives were lost, as was all the cargo. The coins were recovered in modern times, literally a million of them packed in wax inside wooden barrels.

Leocadia, sunk in 1800 off Punta Santa Elena, Ecuador This wreck was discovered and salvaged by Marty Meylach in the 1970s, paving the way for future work with the government of Ecuador up until recent times. The typical yield from this wreck has been portrait (bust) 8 reales from Lima, Peru, part of the more than 2 million pesos of registered silver and gold cargo aboard the Leocadia when she departed Paita, Peru, bound for Panama in a convoy of merchant vessels. On November 16, 1800, the Leocadia struck a shoal and broke apart 100 yards from the beach at Punta Santa Elena, with a loss of over 140 lives in the disaster. Within the next year the Spanish salvaged about 90 percent of the registered treasure, leaving more than 200,000 pesos (not to mention the expected contraband) behind to tempt divers in our time. Judging from the paucity of coins from this ship on the open market, we may assume that many more are still to be found.

S.S. New York, sunk in 1846 off New Orleans The S.S. New York was a side-wheel steamer on a weekly shuttle from Galveston, Texas, to New Orleans, Louisiana, when on September 7, 1846, she found herself in the midst of a hurricane and was unable to stay afloat and sank with 17 souls, the remaining 36 on board being rescued by the S.S. Galveston. According to reports, some $30,000-$40,000 worth of US gold and silver coins and banknotes were lost in the wreck, many of the US coins being early products of the southern branch mints of Charlotte (NC), Dahlonega (GA) and New Orleans (LA). At the time, however, reports of the war against Mexico over Texas statehood took precedence, and the wreck of the New York was all but forgotten. In the 1990s, however, an astute oil field worker was able to find the shipwreck based on fishermen’s reports of a known “snag” in a certain area of the Gulf of Mexico. In 2007 the wreck was salvaged in a full-scale operation that yielded thousands of gold and silver coins in excellent condition. Many of the finds were first offered at auction by Stack’s in 2008. Douro, sunk in 1882 off Cape Finisterre, Spain The British Royal Mail Steamer Douro was en route to England from Portugal when she collided with the Spanish steamship Yrurac Bat and sank in the early morning hours of April 2, 1882, in deep water off the northwest coast of Spain. All but six people on board survived, but the ship and its cargo of tens of thousands of gold coins were a total loss. The wreck was found and salvaged in 1995 by Sverker Hallstrom and Nigel Pickford using a remote-operated vehicle (ROV) at a depth of 1,500 feet. The cargo of gold coins, mostly British sovereigns was sold at auction by Spink (London) in 1996.

Hindostan, sunk in 1803 off the southeast coast of England The East Indiaman Hindostan was outbound to Madras when she hit a gale and sank on the Wedge Sand off Margate on January 11, 1803, to the demise of about 25 aboard the ship. In addition to a large consignment of wool, on board the ship were 13 cases of silver bullion, of which 11 were salvaged right after the disaster. Modern salvage after location in 1984 has yielded mostly copper coins and bullion.

152. Brazil (Bahia mint), 1600 reis, José I, 1768-B, encapsulated NGC AU 58, finest known graded by NGC, extremely rare. R-O362; KM-181.1. Bold and lustrous, the broad flan extending beyond the rims, quite conservatively graded in our opinion, as its flashy appearance and pristine surfaces seem to have been played down without other examples for reference, the only other one known to us being AU 50 and visibly much lower in quality. In any case the present coin is the finest known by far. Any date of this mint in this denomination is extremely rare, in any grade, with usually only one or a few known for each date, in comparison with the far more common Rio-mint production of the same denomination in a narrower date range but in larger quantities. Pedigreed to the New England Collection. Estimate: $25,000-up.

Pedigreed to the New England Collection. Estimate: $3,000-$4,500.

U.S. Coins Untangling the Mystery of the “Seawater Uncs” (Ashley-Gordy Gold) by John M. Kleeberg (abridged and edited by Daniel Frank Sedwick)

Since at least the 1960s, numismatists have been aware of the importance of shipwrecks as “time capsules” that can tell us what coins were in circulation on the date each ship sank. At first this only applied to Spanish coins, since the early recoveries were from sunken Spanish treasure fleets of 1622, 1715, and 1733. But the past two decades have seen the recovery of the Central America (1857), the Brother Jonathan (1865), the Republic (1865) and the New York (1846), supplying evidence that is important for the study of nineteenth-century United States coinage as well. This article discusses another group of shipwreck U.S. coins whose shipwreck provenance was uncertain when the coins hit the market in the early 1970s. Since the 1970s, texts on U.S. gold coins from Southern branch mints (New Orleans [O], Charlotte [C] and Dahlonega [D]) have included a mysterious group simply called “seawater uncs” or “saltwater uncs.” Walter Breen described these “seawater uncs” in the section on half eagles in his 1988 Complete Encyclopedia of U.S. and Colonial Coins: Many survivors from Southern branch mints (notably 1843-O, 1853-55 C, 1852-55-D) show full mint sharpness but dull matte surfaces; these are known as “seawater uncs.” They were retrieved from a wrecked ship, said to be a Confederate transport, sometime before 1974. Details have not yet become available, but the hoard also included double eagles and probably other denominations.

Breen then used the expression “seawater uncs” to refer to 1854-S double eagles that came from the Yankee Blade, thus giving the mistaken impression that Yankee Blade was the name of the Confederate transport. Q. David Bowers began to straighten out this tangled tale in his 1997 book, American Coin Treasures and Hoards. He pointed out that the etching on the 1854-S double eagles was lighter than that seen on the Southern branch-mint coins. Bowers proposed that three shipwrecks were involved: one with the 1854-S double eagles, one with the coins from the Southern branch mints, and a third with double eagles dated 1855-S and 1856-S. Although Yankee Blade would make a good (albeit somewhat counter-intuitive) name for a Confederate transport, that ship had nothing to do with the Confederacy. The Yankee Blade was a notorious shipwreck, because after it rammed a hidden reef off Point Arguello, California, on October 1, 1854, the crew and the steerage passengers plundered the ship of its money and alcohol. Breen cited two appearances of 1854-S coins from the wreck, both in the Superior section of the 1982 Apostrophe Auction, one encrusted and clearly from the sea. Both lots supposedly came from a find by divers off Anacapa Island near the Santa Barbara coast. However, this location is probably incorrect, due to a conflation of the Yankee Blade wreck with the Winfield Scott, which sank off Anacapa Island on December 2, 1853. The real origin had to be the Yankee Blade of 1854, but that wreck could not explain the coins from Southern branch mints with heavy etching, nor the 1855 and 1856 coins. Joining U.S. coin research with treasure-hunting research provided the answers. The 1972 edition of John S. Potter, Jr.’s Treasure Divers Guide mentioned a discovery of gold coins in March 1963 by Albert Ashley and James Gordy of Fort Pierce, Florida. The coins bore the denominations $1, $2.50, $5, $10, $20, and were dated between 1834 and 1856. The story was fleshed out by several references: a May 12, 1968 article by Don Wharton entitled, “What Actually Happened in Those Florida Treasure Hunts” in Empire Magazine (Sunday color supplement of the Denver Post), and partially reprinted in Reader’s Digest, June 1968; an article by the State of Florida archeologist, Carl Clausen, in the July 1968 Florida Historical Quarterly entitled, “The Fort Pierce American Gold Find”; and a discussion of silver coins in Alan Craig’s 2000 book, Spanish Colonial Silver Coins in the Florida Collection. The Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research and the Florida Master Site File also provided further information. Here is a summary: During the Third Seminole War, army paymaster Major Jeremiah Yellot Dashiell was traveling to Fort Capron on the Indian River on the east coast of Florida with a leather pouch containing $23,000 in gold that had been withdrawn from the subtreasury in Charleston, South Carolina. On May 1, 1857, Dashiell’s schooner transport had to anchor outside the Indian River Inlet because sandbars made it too hazardous for the ship to pass through the inlet. Dashiell boarded a small boat for the trip to the fort, but a freak wave swamped the boat. Although the passengers were saved, the leather pouch sank to the bottom of the inlet and was swallowed by “quicksand” (an important point, as we shall see), and could not be recovered. Major Dashiell applied to Congress for relief from responsibility for the loss, which was granted, but a few weeks later in 1857 he suffered a mysterious theft of $13,000 in gold while staying overnight at a hotel in Palatka, Florida. The Federal government concluded that Major

65


Dashiell was either extremely unlucky or extremely crooked, and dismissed him from service on July 10, 1858. Later, during the Civil War, Dashiell held the rank of colonel while he served the State of Texas as adjutant-general and inspector-general. After the war he lived in San Antonio and edited the Herald. His application in 1888 for a pension from the Federal government on the basis of service in the Mexican War was refused because of the circumstances of his discharge from the army in 1858. In March 1963, while fishing for crawfish, Albert N. Ashley and teenager James R. Gordy found Dashiell’s coins in the Atlantic Ocean. On July 2, 1964, James Gordy’s father, Ken F. Gordy, obtained a lease from the State of Florida to salvage the coins under the standard terms of three quarters to the finders with the remaining quarter to the State. In September 1964 the salvagers and the State divided the 582 gold coins reported to have been found. What the finders did not tell the State was that they had actually recovered more than 2,700 gold coins in 1963, many of which they secretly sold. By 1967 Ashley and the Gordys had fallen out among themselves and sued each other. Then the true story emerged, whereupon Ashley and the Gordys were sued by the State of Florida in 1968. They had complicated the matter by borrowing heavily from the St. Lucie County Bank (which later merged into SunTrust), using the coins as collateral for the loan. When the trouble began in 1967, the St. Lucie County Bank locked up the coins in escrow (while still accruing interest). On April 17, 1972, the litigants concluded a stipulation under which the coins would be sold to satisfy the indebtedness to the St. Lucie County Bank. Then the remaining coins would be split, with 55% of the appraised value going to the State of Florida, and 45% of the appraised value to the finders, Albert N. Ashley and James R. Gordy, to split evenly between themselves. Ken F. Gordy was to receive no coins. As of June 6, 1972, the indebtedness to the St. Lucie County Bank amounted to $11,408.28. The litigants wanted to sell as few coins as possible to satisfy the debt, so they chose to sell the more-valuable double eagles. A Mr. Ronald Sibley of Kissimmee, Florida, offered to pay $90 for each double eagle, but the litigants did not accept this offer. Instead they sold 114 double eagles to World-Wide Coin Investments Ltd. in Atlanta, Georgia, at the price of $101 per coin. (A further round of litigation by the State of Florida was dismissed in 1973.) As Q. David Bowers points out in his book, hundreds of “seawater unc” $20 gold coins suddenly came onto the market in the 1970s, some 1854-S from the Yankee Blade but also some 1855-S and 1856-S that could not have come from that ship. Bowers himself acquired a few dozen of the 1855-S and 1856-S double eagles from World-Wide Coin Investments Ltd. and offered the final group of eighteen 1856-S double eagles in a 1973 Coin World advertisement touting “a rather remarkable purchase… from a sunken treasure ship off the coast of Florida.” Nobody made the connection to the Ashley-Gordy find and the sale of the coins to settle the bank debt just the year prior. Because of the litigation, we know the total face value of the gold coins found by Ashley and Gordy came to $23,010.50, nearly exactly corresponding to the $23,000 that Dashiell claimed to have lost, which suggests that Ashley and Gordy recovered the entire cache. Their find comprised the following gold coins: $1 (508), $2.50 (787), $5 (929), $10 (490), and $20 (550); as well as the following silver coins: 5¢ (28), 25¢ (83), 50¢ (26). While we do not know the date and mint for every denomination, the number of each date is known for the $1 pieces from Philadelphia: 1849 (5), 1850 (6), 1851 (25), 1852 (20), 1853 (72), 1854 (15), 1855 (5), 1856 (7); in addition to four $1 pieces from New Orleans dated from 1849-O to 1855-O. Another precise list we have is the 195 coins remaining from the find as of June 30, 1972, to be divided among the State of Florida, Albert N. Ashley, and James R. Gordy, consisting of these combinations: $1 (2): 1850-O; 1855 $2.50 (7): 1843-O; 1851-O; 1852-C; 1854 (2); 1855; 1856 $5 (21): 1834; 1838 (2); 1841 (2); 1843-C; 1844-O; 1846 (2); 1846-D (2); 1850-C (2); 1850-D; 1853-D; 1854-C (2); 1855-D (2); 1856-C; 1856-D $10 (7): 1839; 1845; 1847 (2); 1849 (2); 1850 $20 (158): 1850 (7); 1850-O (6); 1851 (10); 1851-O (4); 1852 (17); 1852-O (3); 1853 (23); 1853-O (5); 1854 (15); 1854-S (3); 1855 (26); 1855-S (7); 1856 (11); 1856-S (20); 1857-S Beyond those figures, we must rely on tabulations of “seawater uncs” in the published works by Walter Breen, Douglas Winter (Gold Coins of the Dahlonega Mint, 1838-1861, 1997, and Gold Coins of the Charlotte Mint, 1836-1861, 1998), and David W. Akers (United States Gold Coins: An Analysis of Auction Records, 1975-1982), as well as the Bowers & Merena 1999-2000 auctions of the Harry Bass Collection, summarized as follows: $2.50: 1846-C; 1846-D; 1846-O; 1856-C $5: 1834; 1835; 1836; 1840-D; 1840-O; 1842; 1843-C; 1843-O; 1844-O; 1845; 1846; 1846-C; 1846-D; 1847-C; 1848-C; 1848-D; 1850-C; 1852-C: 1852-D; 1853-D; 1854-D; 1855-C; 1855-D; 1856-C; 1856-D; 1856-S $10: 1842, small date; 1842-O; 1843; 1844-O; 1845-O; 1846/5-O; 1847; 1847-O; 1848 $20: 1855-S; 1856; 1856-S Note, however, that “seawater uncs” are only mentioned by Akers and Winter if the date and mintmark combination does not occur in high grade; for common dates, “seawater uncs” rank too low to be listed in condition censuses. Thus the above analysis probably omits many common date and mintmark combinations.

One final point is how the Ashley-Gordy coins acquired the dull matte surfaces that Bowers recognized as being more etched than the Yankee Blade coins. Recall that Dashiell said he could not retrieve the leather pouch from the inlet bottom because it sank below the “quicksand.” As leather generally does not survive in salt water, it can be assumed that the coins eventually lost their confinement and were abraded by the loose sand, an effect seen on some Spanish shipwreck gold coins as well and often referred to as “sandwashing.” It is the combination of this abrasion with the dates up through 1856 and the Southern branch mintmarks that make the Dashiell gold recognizable today.

Shipwreck Ingots Gold Unidentified ca.-1570 wreck off the northern coast of South America

391. Small, coin-like cut gold piece (“oro corriente”) marked with Charles I tax stamp, 27.7 grams, from an unidentified ca.-1570 wreck off the northern coast of South America. Roughly 3/4” x 3/4” x 1/4”. A corner cut of a 1/4”-thick rectangular ingot with full, circular stamp showing a small crown above the letters CA (somewhat obscured by a natural surface flaw) inside a border, the two cuts very sharp and angular (not broken), hints of sediment in crevices here and there, an important piece as clearly cut to the (approximate) size of an 8E at a time when gold coins were not yet struck in the colonies. From an unidentified ca.-1570 wreck off the northern coast of South America. Estimate: $5,000-up.

392. Small, coin-like “blob” of cut gold pieces (“oro corriente”) melted together and encrusted, with 3 partial Charles I tax stamps (crowned CA inside circular border), 36.6 grams, from an unidentified ca.-1570 wreck off the northern coast of South America. Roughly 1-1/4” x 7/8” x 3/8”. A strange and fascinating piece that appears to be several small “drips” of gold melted together and then stamped 3 times, with big patch of dark encrustation on one side and small bits of white here and there, very coin-like in size and weight but otherwise more like a natural nugget in appearance. From an unidentified ca.-1570 wreck off the northern coast of South America. Estimate: $4,000-$6,000.

Atocha, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida

393. Cut end of a gold bar #10, 70.86 grams, marked with fineness IIVX… (17-3/4K, stamped BACKWARDS), from the Atocha (1622), with original (1970s) photo-certificate. Roughly 1-1/4” x 1” x 3/8”. The rounded end of a flat bar with two sharp cuts (one halfway broken) at an angle to each other, the top stamped with a circular tax stamp with dotted border and (on top of that) the usual Roman-numeral fineness, although in this case the numerals are backwards (either that or the V is upside down), with three dots (each a quarter karat) above (or below), a little bit polished but rare as a small cut from this wreck, and desirable for its old certificate. From the Atocha (1622), with hand-signed Fisher photo-certificate #10 dated May 20, 1976. Estimate: $4,000-$6,000.

Luz, sunk in 1752 off Montevideo, Uruguay

394. Gold disk, 447 grams, marked XIXX and V / upside-down V, fineness estimated at 22K, ex-Sotheby’s, from the Luz (1752). 2-1/4” in diameter, 5/8” thick. A very tidy and beautifully marked little disk, neatly formed and very lightly encrusted with organic “footprints,” with hand-engraved Roman numerals on flat side (either XIXX or XXIX, depending on your perspective, but clearly not a fineness marking in either case) and what at first appears to be XX (fineness?) but is actually monogram of V over upside-down V (based on the serifs) deeply impressed on the curved side, small part of edge rubbed for modern testing, a compact but intrinsically valuable piece with excellent provenance and attractive aspect overall. From the Luz (1752), pedigreed to the original Sotheby’s auction of March 1993, with lot-tag #762. Estimate: $25,000-$50,000.

82


Non-wreck

395. Large, natural gold nugget, 3.875 oz., probably from Australia. Approx. 2-1/2” x 1-1/2” x 3/4”. Very attractive natural chunk of gold with rough surfaces all over, indicative of a source find (as opposed to alluvial deposit), with a minimum of white encrustation in the vast crevices, beautiful deep-gold color all over, and a tidy shape and size that make it quite eye-catching, not to mention its high intrinsic value. Estimate: $7,000-$10,000.

Silver Unidentified ca.-1554 wreck off Santo Domingo

396. Triangular cut piece of a silver “splash” ingot, 93.4 grams, with stamp showing an X inside a box, from an unidentified ca.-1554 wreck off Santo Domingo. Approx. 2-1/2” x 1-3/4” x 3/8”. Crude hunk of silver with 3 broken sides, lightly corroded on the bottom but the top well preserved yet with much irregularity as made (also with stress crack) and with neat stamping near edge. From an unidentified ca.-1554 wreck off Santo Domingo, with Sedwick certificate. Estimate: $600-$900.

83


Unidentified late-1500s site off the coast of Georgia 397. Triangular cut piece of a silver “splash” ingot, 70.2 grams, marked with a crowned Mexican-style cross inside a circular border with lion, castle, G and shell in the quadrants, from an unidentified late-1500s site off the coast of Georgia. Approx. 1-1/2” x 1-1/4” x 3/8”. Outer segment with two broken sides, rough bottom but smoother top exhibiting half of a well-detailed stamping, identical to ones seen from the so-called “Power Plant wreck” off the east coast of Florida, with a fleur-tipped cross-lions-castles that is usually indicative of Mexico but in fact was also used in the second series of coinage from Santo Domingo (1578), therefore possibly connecting this ingot to Dominican missionary activity in this exact area at the time. Found on the south end of St. Simons Island, Georgia. Estimate: $1,000-up.

Atocha, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida

398. Large silver ingot #777, 76 lb 10.88 oz troy, Class Factor 1.0, dated 1621, fineness 2380/2400, from the Atocha (1622). 13-1/2” x 5” x 3”. A typical “loaf ” of silver from the Atocha, except for the fact that the markings are clear enough to merit the top grade of Class

Factor 1.0, which means even the date (typically the weakest mark) is visible, in this case just to the left of the manifest number IIUDCCCLXXVII, with the fineness IIUCCCLXXX and assayer cartouche somewhat weaker, as are also three circular tax stamps, but the owner/shipper monograms AL and qS or Sb (J. de Andrada and A. de Villalpando) are quite bold, and so are the silvermaster marks V (de Vreder) and B (name unknown) at the ends. The assayer’s “bite” is a peanut-shaped “double-scoop” in the center, as on all Potosí bars. Minimal corrosion overall, with tiny bits of charcoal embedded in one side. From the Atocha (1622), with Fisher photo-certificate #S777. Estimate: $25,000-up.

84


399. Medium-sized silver ingot #615, 42 lb 6.08 oz troy, Class Factor 0.9, fineness 2380/2400, dated 1621 (twice), from the Atocha (1622). 13-1/4” x 4-1/4” x 2”. With all the markings of a typical bread loaf-size ingot but about half the weight, this bar shows very clear manifest number IIIIUCCCCXXI (4421), fineness IIUCCCLXXX, silvermaster V (de Vreder) and tax stamps, also with small double-scoop assayer’s “bite” in center, but best feature is a pair (yes, two) of cartouches showing P (for Potosí) next to I6ZI (1621) date, which should qualify this bar for Class Factor 1.0 but was probably downgraded by Treasure Salvors because of the light smoothing from corrosion or for its smaller size, nevertheless a premium ingot for its markings and its more useful and convenient size. From the Atocha (1622), with Fisher photo-certificate #S615 and original plastic tag. Estimate: $17,500-$25,000.

400. Medium-sized silver ingot #676B, 38 lb 10.72 oz troy, Class Factor 1.0, fineness 2380/2400, dated 1622, from the Atocha (1622). 13-1/4” x 4-1/4” x 2-1/4”. A second ingot of useful size with good markings, this one with very prominent date cartouche, with bold manifest number DCCXXI (721), silvermaster A, fineness IIUCCCLXXX and well-detailed tax stamps, small “bite” in center, all lightly corroded. From the Atocha (1622), with Fisher certificate #S676B (photo missing). Estimate: $17,500-$25,000.

85


401. Small silver ingot, 20 lb 3.48 oz troy, fineness 2380/2400, from the Atocha (1622). 12-3/4” x 4-1/4” x 1-1/4”. If the mediumsized ingots were useful, this small one is downright convenient, as it shows all the same markings as the bigger ones (manifest number IIUCCXLII [2241], fineness IIUCCCLXXX, tax stamps, silvermaster marks A and V, and tiny “bite” in center, all moderately corroded) but is a fraction of the size and weight, with the additional (but dubious) distinction of being among a small group of bars that were stolen by Mel’s son before official certification (lacking the TSI number on the bottom). From the Atocha (1622), with court document from 1989 declining charges against Melvin Terry Fisher for theft of this bar from his father Mel Fisher. Estimate: $7,500-up.

86


Maravillas, sunk in 1656 off Grand Bahama Island

402. Large silver ingot, 76 troy pounds, fineness 2360/2400, dated (165)2), from the Maravillas (1656). 14” x 5-1/2” x 3-1/2”. Huge “loaf ” of silver with bold markings of manifest number IIUCCCXII (2312) next to date-cartouche (165)2, fineness IIUCCCLX with weight XID XXIIG (11 dineros, 22 granos) next to that and assayer cartouche to the other side, owner/shipper marks (monograms) TA and *AS, large scoop-style assayer’s “bite” in center plus cylindrical one on the edge (which means this was an Oruro bar that was re-assayed in Potosí) next to a silvermaster mark M, various other cartouches at other end, with light corrosion only and with interesting encrustation on all but the top side (also an interesting void in one side, probably where embedded charcoal burned away), very impressive and important as one of very few large ingots ever offered from this wreck. From the Maravillas (1656), with original Humphreys photo-certificate. Estimate: $25,000-up.

403. Small silver ingot, 1393 grams, fineness 2170/2400, from the Maravillas (1656). 7-1/8” x 2” x 3/4”. A neat little bar with marking of fineness IIUCLXX in center to left of a full cartouche that shows the monogram for CAROLVS (just like on the coins), also with two significant patches of white-green encrustation, minimal corrosion but somewhat dark. From the Maravillas (1656), with original Humphreys (Marex) certificate #CHS-119. Estimate: $2,500-$3,750.

404. Silver contraband “finger” bar encrusted with natural emerald (as found), 667 grams, from the Maravillas (1656). 5-1/2” x 1-3/8” x 1-1/4”. Classic-shaped ingot with flat top, rounded bottom and sides, but completely cocooned in white-and-gray shelly encrustation, remarkably with a light-green but rather translucent natural emerald crystal embedded near one end, first such item we have ever seen and well worth a premium despite its lack of visible markings. From the Maravillas (1656). Estimate: $2,500-$3,750.

87


Spanish 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida

405. Very small silver “wedge” ingot (probably contraband), 259.2 grams, from the 1715 Fleet. 2” x 1-3/8” x 1-1/8”.

Potosí

895. Potosí, Bolivia, cob 2 reales, 1695VR. S-P40; KM-24; CT-626. 3.9 grams. Choice full cross despite moderate corrosion that renders part of the edge crude, bold full waves, interesting shape. Estimate: $75-$110.

896. Contemporary counterfeit of a Potosí, Bolivia, cob 2 reales, 173(?)M. 5.5 grams. Determining whether a fake is contemporary (i.e., made and circulated at the time of the originals) or modern can be difficult, but when the coin comes from a shipwreck, there is no question, and that is the case here: The coin has incorrect details in the full cross and off-center pillars, and the metal appears to be somewhat low in fineness, with odd black encrustation on most of the worn but uncorroded surfaces. Estimate: $100-up. 897. Potosí, Bolivia, cob 1 real, 1691VR. S-P40; KM-23; CT-730. 2.1 grams.

Various 6 and 12 deniers and 5 and 10 centimes of several different regions and reigns, all fully attributed by the consignor despite the fact that almost all of them are worn and/or corroded, interesting lot for the researcher.

911. Huge, 30-pound clump of approx. 500 Spanish colonial bust 8 reales of Charles IV, plus one loose coin from the same clump. Roughly 12” x 9” x 4”. This museum piece is by far the most impressive clump we have ever offered, undoubtedly a full mint-bag of coins that stayed nearly intact, with all the coins solid and believed to be well detailed (as evidenced by the one coin that was removed and cleaned to show AU details and lovely toning) as preserved by thick encrustation in white, tan and green colors, the coins in multiple fallen stacks at angles to each other. If you have unlimited funds and have been waiting for the best artifact from this wreck, your time has come! Housed in padded, locking suitcase. Estimate: $40,000-$60,000.

912. Clump of 7 Spanish colonial bust 8 reales (probably all Lima, Peru, 1800IJ), with encrustation. 199.7 grams total. A clump of two neat stacks—one with two coins and the other with five coins—situated at a right angle, with shells and other debris in between each coin, all of which seem to be solid and probably well detailed, as is the one exposed coin that shows the bust and date nicely. Estimate: $700-$1,000.

913. Clump of 5 Spanish colonial bust 8 reales (probably all Lima, Peru, 1800IJ), with encrustation. 139.4 grams total. A neatly fallen stack, with thick white-and-green encrustation on bottom and bit of shells on the side, no coin details visible but all appear to be solid. Estimate: $500-$750.

Hindostan, sunk in 1803 off Margate, southeast of England 916. Large clump of over a dozen English East India Co. copper X cash of 1803 embedded in impacted mud that probably hides many more coins, rare provenance. 1570 grams total; roughly 6-1/2” x 5” x 3”. Very impressive chunk of orange crud with green-brown coins sticking out, a super display and undoubtedly one of the best artifacts from this somewhat obscure wreck. With original certificate from the salvager. Estimate: $350-$500.

Admiral Gardner, sunk in 1809 southeast of England 917. Lot of 2 small clumps of English East India Co. copper X cash, 1808, approx. 6-7 coins total. 57.4 grams total.

Clump of two Spanish colonial bust 8 reales of Charles IV, one with 1807 date visible and the other with Guatemala mintmark visible, ex-Frank Sedwick (1989). 51.0 grams. Basically a shipwreck piedfort, of sorts, as the top coin shows the obverse and the bottom coin shows the reverse, tightly fused together with greenish encrustation, the details on both coins clear but dark, with corrosion around the rims. With copy of Frank Sedwick Price List of November 1989 in which this piece was offered and sold for $150. Estimate: $125-$200.

The main coin with clear details but corroded rims, the other coin just a black disc, the brass nail and ring intact and interesting, but the shells just a filler, with stand and box, a cool conversation piece overall. Estimate: $400-$600.

920. USA (New Orleans mint), dime (seated) Liberty, 1841O, encapsulated NGC SS New York / Shipwreck Effect, in display box. KM-63.2. 5” x 3-1/2” x 1-1/2” (display).

This small but exciting coin has resided in the consignor’s collection since 1974, when it was miscataloged and therefore escaped notice until a footnote in Kurt Dym’s 1988 COAC article hinted at its existence, the only specimen known to us and in fact a choice example for any 1/4R, with full and details, including crowns and legends on both sides, beautifully toned VF, a super cob that will surely bring spirited bidding from specialists in Potosí cobs and in 1/4R in general. Pedigreed to the Almanzar auction of April 1974 (mistakenly cataloged there as a 1/2R, lot #327), with original tag. Estimate: $1,000-up.

Typically choice, full details all over (including full legends), evenly struck on a perfectly round flan, VF+ with lightly toned fields, holed (as usual) at top of cross. Interestingly, like almost all the Royals of this date (with the exception of one with a • instead), this coin shows a pomegranate between the tops of the pillars (this particular die with leaves flanking the pomegranate), as opposed to the PH that is seen instead on all 1653-1656 and some 1657. Also, the “main” date between the pillars is 657, which sets it apart from all the regular issues and about half the Royals. Estimate: $3,500-$5,000.

Spanish 1715 Fleet, sunk off the east coast of Florida

1910. Important gold religious medallion and chain with full research. 98.7 grams total, chain 32” long, the medallion about 1-1/2”. This is not just another religious medallion: Made of solid gold and accompanied by its original chain, it bears significant symbols in high relief on both sides that have been thoroughly researched to show that this was likely the possession of a wealthy criollo (colony-born but pureblood Spanish) coming from the New World to Spain. This symbolism comprises a scene of the Virgin Mary on a crescent on top of the baby Jesus with native-looking figures and disembodied heads surrounding her, almost certainly in reference to the Virgen de la Guadalupe, a manifestation of the Virgin Mary to a Mexican native in 1531 and from the mid-17th century onward a revered symbol specifically of the criollo class. On the reverse of the medallion is a cross on the hills of Calvary (where Jesus was crucified), significantly with three nails (possibly stigmata) and a starburst (probably the heart of Christ) but no Jesus figure. The chain consists of hundreds of small, double-ring links, hand-crafted to a high standard. Overall the piece is in a magnificent state of preservation, with no noticeable wear or damage, a relic for all eternity. With original Fisher photo-certificate #40668, an independent analysis report and a copy of Discovery Day Treasures magazine for comparison to similar 6-figure treasures offered by Mel Fisher’s companies in 2000. Estimate: $35,000-$50,000.

1911. Complete stock (wood) of a flintlock pistol, very rare. 354 grams; 20” long. Flintlock pistols from shipwrecks are not unknown;

but almost always they are left as coral conglomerates, as the steel parts rust away and the wood parts are eaten by teredo worms. That is why this intact wooden stock, very recognizable in shape and size and also rather hard from conservation, is so rare. Estimate: $350-$500.

1912. Lot of 5 pieces of a bronze bell. 2425 grams total; up to 5”. The main piece is the trefoil

hanger at top, under which can be seen an encrusted iron ring for the clapper; but why and how the bell broke into pieces (and where the other pieces are) is a mystery, although the patina makes it clear that it happened before recovery and possibly even before wrecking, meaning that this may have been a “broken” bell stored in the hold for scrap bronze. Estimate: $350-$500.

301

1913. Large lead sounding weight marked XXI. 4560 grams; 10-1/2” long. Tall and straight but typically octagonal in cross-section, also with typical hole at top and depression in bottom, very lightly encrusted over dark-gray surfaces all over. Estimate: $200-$300.


Spanish 1733 Fleet, Florida Keys

1914. Large lignum vitae deadeye. 4350 grams; 8” in diameter and 5-1/2” thick. Of the various parts of the rigging of a wooden sailing ship, perhaps the most recognizable is the deadeye, with three worn holes in middle perpendicular to grooves around the perimeter, the present specimen intact and heavy, with small plaque on polished side that says DEADEYE FROM / SPANISH GALLEON / “SAN FERNANDO” / SUNK OFF FLORIDA / KEYS IN 1733. Estimate: $200-$300. 1915. Lot of small artifacts (iron key, encrusted pewter buckles, etc.) with original division documents from 1981. 54.5 grams total, up to 2-1/2” long. The key and intact but the other pieces either encrusted or broken (or both), all dark in color. Note: one of the documents is for a ring that is not included. From the San José site of the 1733 Fleet, with original 1981 court papers for division signed by receiver John Bamberg (Undersea Mining Corporation). Estimate: $100-$150.

Hollandia, sunk in 1743 off the Scilly Isles, southwest of England 1916. Iron musket bayonet, intact, rare. 100 grams; 14-1/2” long. Still sharp and recognizable in shape but with much of the surfaces lost to oxidation, professionally conserved and stable. With photo-certificate. Estimate: $150-$225.

San Gerónimo, sunk in 1751 off the Yucatán peninsula of Mexico 1917. Earthenware olive jar neck with encrustation that could contain other artifacts. 645 grams; about 4” in diameter and 4” thick. As the thickest part of the jar, the neck seems to be the usual survivor, and it is also the nicest display, this example additionally with heavy (dark-orange) encrustation on the bottom with lots of small pieces of other items. With certificate hand-signed by Frank and Daniel Sedwick in 1995. Estimate: $75-$100.

Estimate: $100-$150.

Unidentified late 1700s wreck in the English Channel 1923. Small, retractable gold toothpick in silver case, rare. 2.2 grams; 2-1/2” long. While small and unprepossessing at first, by sliding the outer sleeve this piece reveals a sharp, gold blade for picking teeth, small ring at top, first such item we have seen. Estimate: $125-$200.

303


Unspecified wreck of the 1700s(?) 1924. Ship’s officer’s sounding lead (small), probably 1700s. 392 grams; 3” long.

Estimate: $100-$150.

Earl of Abergavenny, sunk in 1805 off the Dorset coast of southern England 1925. Lot of 26 gun flints (for pistols and muskets). 219 grams, each about 1” to 1-1/2”.

Estimate: $70-$100.

Admiral Gardner, sunk in 1809 southeast of England 1926. 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. Estimate: $250-$375.

Vivid design consisting of 4 rows of columns around a deep blue center, 4 small squiggles on exterior, fully intact except for small chips in the generally unseen (and unglazed) base, one of nearly 24,000 intact pieces recovered from this India-bound ship out of China, sunk in rough weather.

the 1300s-1400s (so this one is rather late) but undesirable for being too light, too hard to make and apt to break apart upon impact, which also accounts for their rarity now, this one very neatly formed out of green-gray rock, fully intact and also important for its pedigree.

1967. Naval “smoking lamp” (cannon ignitor), ca. 17801815, British or French. 660 grams; 21” long.

1965. Brass navigational dividers with iron legs, British, early 1800s. 77 grams; 6” long. Ring-shaped top (fully functional and intact) with still-sharp points, the transition from brass to iron in the triangular legs barely noticeable. Estimate: $100-$150.

1968. Sea captain’s brass long glass (telescope or spyglass), ca. 1815-1840, British. 1341 grams; 10-1/2” long.

1969. British Royal Navy “deck watch” bell, 1800s, with broad-arrow marks. 1628 grams; 10-1/2” tall. Bright brass color (small spot of green at bottom) with raised broad-arrow design, red-wood handle at top and black-iron clapper inside, fully intact and ring-able (it’s loud). With photocertificate. Estimate: $100-$150.


1970. Large silver tray (footed platter) made by English silversmith John Hutson, engraved in presentation to William Nowell, captain of HMS Ferret in 1793, for “capture of French privateers,” with separate oval plaque (also silver) from 1946 presenting the tray to WWII skipper Robert Wason, with signatures from the National Association of Manufacturers. 3750 grams total; approx. 25” x 17”. On February 1, 1793, France declared war on Great Britain and the Netherlands. The 12-cannon brig-sloop HMS

Ferret, under Captain Nowell and fresh off a yearlong stint in the Caribbean, subsequently captured six French privateers, as commemorated by this silver platter. This piece was then passed down for two and half centuries before it was presented again, this time with a separate plaque glued on the back, to another ship captain after World War II. In addition to the evident historical value, this item must also be considered for its high intrinsic value. The condition is excellent, with no dents or cuts or scratches, the handles and feet intact and the engraving in the center and hallmarks on bottom very well detailed, same for the separate plaque from 1946. Estimate: $3,500-up.

Modern

1992. Lot of 2 Fisher “space pens” made with Atocha gold, in original boxes. Each 15.3 grams and 3-1/4” long. One of the many marketing connections Mel Fisher made in the 1980s was with Paul Fisher, whose “space pens” were the ideal tie-in for using newly found bullion from the Atocha to further both Fisher names, this set consisting of one gold-colored pen and one sterling silver pen, both with gold accents made from “Actual Gold from the Sunken Treasure of the 1622 Spanish Galleon ATOCHA,” as stated on the original plastic containers. Estimate: $125-$200.

1993. Hand-crafted mummified pirate head by local artist Barry Anderson. 1570 grams and 13” tall (including stand). One of the highlights of our Auction #8 was a mummified head of the pirate Blackbeard, hand-crafted by the same artist as this piece, which is intended to be the head of a pirate whose head was preserved in salt (hence the artist’s name for this piece “Salty”), with real human hair and faithfully reproduced skin and bones and even teeth (some painted gold), also with a replica “piece of eight” in one eye socket. About the artist: Barry Anderson has spent the past 28 years working as an artist in Florida. He is accomplished as a commercial and fine artist as well as a special effects makeup artist for film and television. Since 1994 Barry created museum figures for Ripley’s Entertainment (where he was the Director of the Arts Department), which enabled him to study genuine mummies, shrunken heads, trophy skulls and other unusual antiquities. Recently he traveled to Leymebamba, Peru, with mummy expert (and star of National Geographic’s “Mummy Road Show”) Gerry Conlogue, studying Incan and pre Incan Mummies with a group scientists from around the world. Barry’s expertise in re-creating human remains and mummies has also brought him together with medical examiners, anthropologists and scientists in several documentaries and television programs as well as with police agencies for C.S.I. training and with military contractors for combat medic training. Barry’s numerous film and television credits include: National Geographic’s “Mummy Road Show”; Discovery Channel’s “Super Sleuths”; P.B.S.’s “Secrets of the Dead - Gangland Graveyard”; and feature films “Hair Spray,” “Jeepers Creepers,” and George Romero’s “Day of the Dead.” With “death certificate” signed by the artist. Estimate: $400-$600. 319
