7)

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 nonlive 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 bidders must be registered before their bids will be entered. 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. Lot pickup will be available after the auction (not during). Any lots not picked up in person (unless other arrangements are made) 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.

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. NGC or PCGS census data (“finest known,” etc.) are given based on the date of cataloging and are not presumed to be accurate forever. 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. If buyer does not supply a Florida resale certificate, then Florida sales tax will apply as follows: If picked up in person, 6.5% will be added to the total (hammer plus buyer’s fee) for all items that are NOT coins or bullion, and to all non-U.S. coins whose total is less than $500. Same applies to lots shipped to Florida addresses, but the rate (6% to 7.5%) will be according to county of delivery. There is no Florida sales tax on U.S coins or on any lots shipped out of state. 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 #15 Live on the Internet: Thursday-Friday, May 1-2, 2014 We have put together a trophy-packed treasure auction yet again! With a pre-auction total low estimate of more than $1.2 million, this auction is brimming with many great wholesale opportunities as well. As usual we start off with gold cobs, including many choice 8 escudos from the 1715 Fleet. The highlight items are a Mexican 1 escudo Royal 1714J (lot 17), a Lima 8 escudos 1701H Philip V (lot 18) and the finest-known Cuzco 2 escudos 1698M (lot 33). In shipwreck ingots we have a boldly marked “EN RADA” gold bar from the “Dry Tortugas wreck” (lot 240), which was recently identified as the Rosario of the famous 1622 Fleet (Atocha and Santa Margarita). Shipwreck silver, starting with some popular Atocha ingots, features many very rare Cartagena cobs from the Atocha (1622), plus many 1652 transitionals of Potosí from the Capitana (1654). The rare Colombian cobs continue from other wrecks and in non-wreck cobs as well. While the Mexican silver-cob section features many rare-date 8 reales, it is the Lima section that comes to the fore this time with three very rare Royals (two 8 reales—1685R and 1720M, lots 858 and 863—and one 4 reales 1739V, lot 867). The Royals continue in the Potosí cobs section, which also features a Rincón 8 reales (lot 886, the very rare “first dollar” of the mint) and a couple very rare Philip II assayer-C 8 reales (lots 887-888). Best of all is a Potosí 8 reales Heart, 1716Y (lot 974), only the second of its kind we have ever offered. Rounding out the cobs sections are offerings of very rare silver cobs of Santo Domingo, Panama and Colombia. In general world silver coins we offer a Chile 8 reales 1796DA with classic “CRAROLVS” error (lot 1212) and the finest known Popayán, Colombia, 5 décimos 1869 (lot 1266), among many other fine offerings of Latin American material. For the first time we present a quantity of certified German States coins as well. Overall the coins sections should be noted for the presence (in and among the trophies) of various wholesale-level group lots that are totally unreserved and perfect for dealers, even US coins. Perhaps the best wholesale lot of all is a 10kg lot of silver cobs from the São José wreck of 1622 (lot 390)—over 500 coins! The most eye-catching items, however, are the shipwreck artifact trophies, this time commanded by a 5-carat diamond ring from the 1715 Fleet (lot 1531) and a silver cup from the 1715 Fleet (lot 1533), plus a beautiful bronze swivel cannon from the Cazador of 1784 (lot 1545). From trophies to group lots, there is clearly something for every kind of buyer in this auction. We look forward to helping you get the lots you want. Good luck, everyone!

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://sedwickcoins.com/map/map.html.

Unidentified ca.-1554 wreck off Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Unidentified (presumably Spanish) wreck sunk ca. 1590 off the Yucatán peninsula of Mexico

9

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.


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.

“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.

“Dry Tortugas wreck,” sunk ca. 1622 off the Dry Tortugas, west of Key West, Florida

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 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

Presumably a sister-ship to the Atocha and Santa Margarita of the 1622 Fleet (above), the “Dry Tortugas wreck” was discovered in 1989 and reworked in 1991 by Seahawk Deep Ocean Technology. Among the finds were numerous gold bars (but no silver bars) and about 1,200 heavily eroded silver cobs similar in composition to the Atocha finds, all picked from the ocean floor by a robot. Cannons and other artifacts expected on a typical galleon were notably absent. The bulk of the treasure was eventually sold to a store/museum in Key West that later went bankrupt. Years later it all turned up at a bankruptcy auction, where the bulk of the treasure was repurchased by some of the former principals of Seahawk for a new museum.

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

10


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

11

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.

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

San Miguel el Arcángel (“Jupiter wreck”), sunk in 1659 off Jupiter Inlet, east coast of Florida

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 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.

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

12


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.

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.

Feversham, sunk in 1711 off Nova Scotia, Canada

“Taj Mahal treasure,” sunk ca. 1702 off Sri Lanka

The Feversham was on its way north with three other ships from New York to Quebec with provisions and cash to assist a British campaign against the French when all four ships sank on and around Scatarie Island off Cape Breton in a storm on October 7, 1711. About 100 people died in the disaster, while the remaining 49 survivors were able to bribe a passing French fisherman to take them to New York for 200 pounds. Apparently no one—British or French—was able to salvage anything from the wreck in its time. In 1968 the wrecksite of the Feversham was rediscovered by a group of divers led by famous Canadian salvager, Alex Storm, whose recoveries were sold privately to a “highly-reputable Canadian institution” in 1972. In the mid-1980s the Feversham was salvaged again by a new group of divers. The Feversham’s numismatic yield was small in comparison with Spanish galleon treasures, but quite important as a cross-section of coinage in circulation in New York at the time. Mostly it was Spanish American silver cobs and Massachusetts Bay Colony shillings, many of the former with rare, weight-adjustment plugs to bring them up to standard. A small group of gold cobs— almost entirely Bogotá 2 escudos, virtually identical to those from the Spanish 1715 Fleet—was found in later salvage efforts. An abundance of auctions offered these coins from 1989 through 1999.

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 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.

1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida

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

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

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

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 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.”

1733 Fleet, Florida Keys

Akerendam, sunk in 1725 off the coast of Norway

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.

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).

Le 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.

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

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 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.

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.

Nuestra Señora de la Luz, sunk in 1752 off Montevideo, Uruguay

Hollandia, sunk in 1743 off the Scilly Isles, southwest of England

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.

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

Auguste, sunk in 1761 off Nova Scotia, Canada

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 2000-2001. 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.

After the end of the Seven Years’ War between England and France in 1759, French officers and aristocrats in Canada were sent from Quebec back to France in ships such as the Auguste. In stormy conditions and damaged by fire, the Auguste struck a sand bar on November 15 and subsequently sank in Aspy Bay off Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Only seven of the 121 on board survived, and the wealth of the passengers was lost until our time. To date, well over a thousand coins of various nationalities have been found, along with many important artifacts.

Nicobar, sunk in 1783 off South Africa

Reijgersdaal, sunk in 1747 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

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

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.

Leocadia, sunk in 1800 off Punta Santa Elena, Ecuador

Cazador, sunk in 1784 off New Orleans, Louisiana

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.

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.

Lady Burgess, sunk in 1806 off the Cape Verde Islands, west of Africa

Hartwell, sunk in 1787 off the Cape Verde Islands, west of Africa

An outbound British East Indiaman with a cargo of general merchandise, the Lady Burgess found herself separated from her fleet and hit a reef in the Cape Verde Islands on April 20, 1806. In the ensuing chaos, 52 of the 180 people on board the ship perished. Inasmuch as she was not a treasure ship, the Lady Burgess was not salvaged in her own time and was therefore untouched when the salvage company Arqueonautas located her remains in 1999 and recovered a modicum of Spanish silver bust-type 8 reales and British gold guineas that had been among private specie on board the ship.

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.

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.

Tek Sing, sunk in 1822 in the South China Sea

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 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.

The huge Chinese junk Tek Sing (“true star”), laden with porcelain, was on her way to Java when she hit a reef and sank, to the demise of all but 198 of the approximately 1800 souls on board. In 1999 the famous salvager Michael Hatcher and his team found the Tek Sing and recovered more than 350,000 pieces of porcelain from the site. The majority of these pieces were sold in a massive auction by Nagel (Germany) on November 17-25, 2000.

In Memory of Louis Hudson 1942-2014 A great friend and respected colleague, Louis was well known for his vast numismatic knowledge developed over many decades. He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by all those who had the privilege of knowing him. What you probably did not know about Louis is that he started out as a farmer. Growing up on a tobacco farm in Virginia near the remains of a Revolutionary War supply depot, Louis was attracted to early colonial coins uncovered by his plow from a young age. In 1967 Louis moved to Argentina after responding to a Philip Morris ad to teach tobacco farming in that country. While there, Louis became fluent in Spanish and began visiting local silversmiths to buy coins that he brought back to the U.S. every summer to sell to collectors, an avocation that led to full-time dealing when the Philip Morris project ended after a few years. Carving out a niche in Latin American coins and banknotes, Louis was a fixture at coin shows and important auctions around the country. His knowledge and influence were evident in countless publications and numismatic collections, perhaps the most important of which was that of the Central Bank of the Dominican Republic, which he single-handedly appraised in 2002. Louis was assisted in the last years of his career in the numismatic business by his daughter, Stephanie, who today continues where Louis Hudson left off. On a personal note, we would like to point out that Louis sold Dan Sedwick his first coin in 1979, the beginning of a collection and profession that continue to grow with the same zeal and fascination instilled by Louis thirty-five years ago.

denomination, well centered, hint of luster. From the 1715 Fleet. Estimate: $1,750-$2,500.

All interior details are full and choice (the shield with just a hint of crudeness) and 100% Mint State, with some visible legend including date and king’s ordinal, small spots of grayish white coral in crevices.

Lima, Peru

18. Lima, Peru, cob 8 escudos, 1701H, Philip V, extremely rare, from the 1715 Fleet. S-L25a; KM-38.1. 26.95 grams. Almost round, evenly struck and perfectly centered, this would be an exceptional specimen for any date, let alone one that is missing in Calicó and the State of Florida collection (theirs is Charles II). In fact we can trace only one other example for Philip V, an AU 55 of demonstrably inferior strike but with perhaps slightly more evidence of the coins’ having been created from a modified 1700 die. The present coin is at least AU 58 but bears areas of red staining and gray coral that preclude professional encapsulation. What is more important is that the strike is nearly perfect—well centered and even—and the effect in hand is sheer beauty. From the 1715 Fleet. Estimate: $25,000-up.

19. Lima, Peru, cob 8 escudos, 1705H, rare, from the 1715 Fleet. S-L25a; KM-38.1; CT-15. 26.94 grams. Exceptionally broad flan with much bold legend in addition to perfect inner details, undoubtedly the finest known of a seldom-seen date, Mint State in our opinion, with a hint of luster. From the 1715 Fleet. Estimate: $15,000-up.

From the 1715 Fleet. Estimate: $15,000-up.

Estimate: $8,000-$12,000.

Well centered on a very broad and roundish flan (“Lima cut,” as opposed to a distinctly smaller and thicker “Bogotá cut,” leading some to believe examples like this one are presentation pieces of some sort), with full legends and beautiful details (the pillars very slightly doubled), lustrous and as choice as they come, fully deserving of its lofty “finest known” status. (Note: An NGC MS 63 example exists, but is clearly tooled and shaved [5.9 grams] and therefore we can safely omit it from the actual census as a grading error.) From the 1715 Fleet.

Philip III 64. Seville, Spain, cob 2 escudos, 1613V, huge flan. CT-43. 6.66 grams. This exceptional specimen has to be a pre-

sentation of some sort (the concept of Royals did not exist this early, and was limited to colonial mints), for it is at least 40% broader and more detailed than the norm, with full inner details and nearly full legends, including a bold full date and crown and king’s name and ordinal III, lustrous and high grade (AU-), unique in quality and surely the finest known for this date by far.

Exceptionally broad, thin flan with choice full inner details and nearly full legends (the full PHILIPPVS II particularly impressive), AU- with small spots of encrustation. Estimate: $1,500-$2,250.

78. Potosí, Bolivia, 1/2 scudo, 1845R, encapsulated NGC UNC details / whizzed. KM-104. Bold strike, lustrous, with bulge at top from possible mount-removal, the surfaces polished but hardly what one would usually consider “whizzed.” Estimate: $200-$300.

Brazil (colonial)

79. Brazil (Minas mint), 6400 reis, João V, 1733-M, extremely rare, clipped and edge re-applied for circulation in the West Indies. Russo-281; Gomes-132.05; KM-135. 13.24 grams. While technically a multi-year type (1727-34), really only the 1733 and 1734 exist, the other dates being unique or unknown, with less than ten specimens known across all the dates and the whole type missing in many iconic old Brazilian collections. Specimens of either date, of which the 1733 is arguably rarer, typically sell for tens of thousands of dollars in any grade. This specimen bears the distinction of being the first known example to have had its edge trimmed down and re-done to circulate in the West Indies, barely noticeable without careful weighing; but clearly the circulation was minimal, as we would grade this coin XF/AU with traces of original luster in legends (great eye-appeal). Estimate: $10,000-up.

39


80. Brazil (Rio mint), 4000 reis, João V, 1717-RRRR, encapsulated NGC AU 58, second finest known in NGC census. Russo-169; KM-102. Superb full mint luster and no wear at all but with high points slightly flat (weak strike), faint scratch inside crown, a very flashy and attractive coin overall. Estimate: $1,500-$2,250.

81. Brazil (Rio mint), 4000 reis, João V, 1719-RRRR. Russo-171; KM-102. 10.47 grams. VF with minor (natural) planchet flaw at REX. Estimate: $700-$1,000.

82. Brazil (Rio mint), 4000 reis, João V, 1724-RRRR. Russo-176; KM-102. 10.71 grams. AU details, lustrous but very lightly hairlined, bold strike. Estimate: $1,250-$2,000.

83. Brazil (Rio mint), 400 reis, João V, 1734-R, encapsulated NGC MS 62, finest known in NGC census, ex-Norweb. Russo-198; KM-152. Despite

its diminutive size, this one-year Rio type is an iconic piece under João V in gold. With beautiful, bright luster all around,

this coin exhibits choice inner details and nice rims for about 80% of its circumference, the remaining 20% plagued with a strange mint-flaw (lacuna) that is decidedly natural and not damage. Superb condition and desirable pedigree. Pedigreed to Norweb Collection (Christie’s, March 1997, lot #686 Estimate: $2,000-$3,500.

84. Brazil (Bahia mint), 6400 reis, José I, 1776-B, encapsulated NGC AU 55, tied for second finest known in NGC census.

Russo-406; KM-172.1.

85. Brazil (struck in Lisbon), 4000 reis, José I, 1777, inverted reverse, encapsulated NGC MS 62, tied for second finest known in NGC census. Russo-337; KM-171.4. Last date for José I, therefore a desirable year and very difficult to find in this high-quality condition, with choice luster and red toning all over. Estimate: $1,500-$2,250.

Excellent strike and lovely luster, and somewhat rare as one of only two coins listed in the current NGC census of gradable specimens. Estimate: $2,000-$3,000.

89. Brazil (Bahia mint), 4000 reis, João Prince Regent, 1808/6, encapsulated NGC MS 62, tied for second finest known in NGC census. Russo-unl. (cf. 547); KM-unl. (cf. 235.1). Bright

yellow color, with nice luster and sharp details (excellent eye

appeal), very clear overdate that is unlisted in references and not mentioned inside the slab. Estimate: $1,750-$2,500.

90. Brazil (Rio mint), 4000 reis, João Prince Regent, 1810, encapsulated NGC MS 63, tied for second finest known in NGC census. Russo-570; KM-235.2.

Lightly toned, highly lustrous

and perfect except for rim at top of reverse, great eye-appeal. Estimate: $1,500-$2,250.

41


91. Brazil (Rio mint), 4000 reis, João Prince Regent, 1811, encapsulated NGC MS 63, tied for finest known in NGC census. Russo-571; KM235.2. Blazingly lustrous and sharply struck, the depth

of strike most apparent at about 1-2 o’clock on the obverse where the planchet is slightly concave, a lovely gem all around. Estimate: $1,750-$2,500.

92. Brazil (Bahia mint), 4000 reis, João Prince Regent, 1814, rare, encapsulated NGC MS 62, finest and only known specimen in NGC census. Russo-552; KM-235.1. Beautiful luster and strike, totally problem-free, conservatively graded in the absence of any comparable examples. Estimate: $2,000-$3,000.

93. Brazil (Rio mint), 4000 reis, João Prince Regent, 1816, REGENS on reverse, encapsulated NGC MS 62, finest and only known specimen in NGC census. Russo-578; KM-312. Rare and highly sought one-year type with different legends ending with PORT.BRAS.ET.ALG on obverse and starting with PRINCEPS.REGENS on reverse, extremely rare in this grade, with superb strike and luster, light yellow color. It should be noted that, while this coin is the only one listed in the NGC census for this rare type, the Eliasberg specimen at MS 65 appears in the census as mis-attributed to the common type (REGENS on obverse). Estimate: $3,000-$4,500.

Brazil (Empire)

94. Brazil, 20000 reis, Pedro II, 1851, small bust, encapsulated NGC MS 64, finest known in NGC census by two grades. Russo-635; KM463.

Lustrous and well struck, just a little

bagmarked, still quite exemplary as the best of 92 coins currently in the NGC census. Estimate: $1,500-$2,250.

Session II: Thursday, May 1, 2014, 2:00 pm edt

Shipwreck Ingots Gold “Golden Fleece wreck,” sunk ca. 1550 in the northern Caribbean 239. Small, cut gold “finger” bar, 116 grams, fineness 20-1/4K. 4-1/4” long, 1/2” to 3/4” wide and about 1/4” thick. One of the thinnest

(genuine) gold ingots we have seen, its uncut length probably due to the fact that it bears just one marking of fineness XX• (hence not further reducible), with one end round as cast and the other neatly cut and now loaded with white coral, all lustrous but somewhat crudely cast. Estimate: $5,000-$7,500.

“Dry Tortugas wreck,” sunk ca. 1622 off the Dry Tortugas off Florida

240. Colombian cut gold bar, 760 grams, with markings of fineness XXII: (21-1/2K) and assayer/foundry Peña-Randa (“EN RADA”), from the “Dry Tortugas wreck” (ca. 1622), now believed to be the Buen Jesus y Nuestra Señora del Rosario of the Spanish 1622 Fleet, plated in Craig & Richards. 4-1/2” long, 1-1/4” wide and about 1/2” thick. Massive cut piece (probably about half of a whole ingot) with very bold markings (the fineness twice and the owner once, plus three partial circular tax seals), most filled with dark encrustation or at least toning, a couple crude places (as cast) but overall well made and impressively heavy, the cut end chiseled down to about half and broken from there (now filled with dark stuff), one of very few bars from this wreck publicly available and now with additional appeal due to recent research that has pinpointed the name of the wreck and attributed it once and for all to the famous 1622 Fleet (Atocha and Santa Margarita). From the “Dry Tortugas wreck” (ca. 1622, possibly the Rosario of the Spanish 1622 Fleet), plated on page 78 of Spanish Treasure Bars (2003), by Craig & Richards. Estimate: $35,000-up.

65


Silver Atocha, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida

241. Large silver bar #282 from the Atocha (1622), 78 lb 6.72 oz troy, fineness 2380/2400, Class Factor 0.9, dated 1621, Potosí foundry, ex-Fay Feild. 13-3/4” long, 5” wide and about 3” tall. A rather well-marked bar, with clear fineness IIUCCCLXXX followed by the usual MEXIA assayer cartouche, date 1621 preceded by Po for Potosí, manifest IIUCCCLIX, four tax seals, plus marks for owner and silvermaster (among others), assayer’s “bite” in center, somewhat pitted all over the top surface, which also has a deep pit (as made), now partially filled with encrustation. The pedigree links to Mel Fisher’s brilliant engineer and magnetometry pioneer, Fay Feild. From the Atocha (1622), with Fisher photo-certificate #85A-S282, and pedigreed to the collection of Fay Feild. Estimate: $20,000-$30,000.

242. Medium silver bar #921 from the Atocha (1622), 34 lb 11 oz troy, dated 1621, fineness 2300+/2400, Class Factor unknown, Potosí foundry. 13” long, 4-1/4” wide and about 2” tall. One of very few bars with markings on both sides, the usually-marked (flat) side very rough but with silversmith mark (B) and others (including a diagonal slash), the rounded side with manifest IIUCCXLIX, fineness IIUCCC (with other undecipherable letters following), date 1621 (weak), a couple tax seals and two more silversmith marks (B), small assayer’s “bite” in center, quite interesting and more manageable in size than the typical loaves. From the Atocha (1622), with Fisher photo-certificate #S921. Estimate: $10,000-$15,000.

243. Flat silver ingot from the Atocha (1622), 18 lb 6.96 oz troy, fineness 2340/2400 fine, no Class Factor, Potosí foundry, very rare as uncleaned. 13” long, 3-3/4” wide and about 1” tall. This piece is rare for several reasons: its thin size, its uncleaned status, its lack of Treasure Salvors number-stamps and its markings on both sides, with silvermaster (B) and diagonal slash on the usual (flat side), and the rounded side with manifest IIUCCLI, fineness IIUCCCXL followed by the MEXIA assayer cartouche, several tax seals and the usual assayer’s “bite” in center. Cleaning could possibly reveal a date and foundry mark, for the surface corrosion does not appear significant, but the light sheen of brownish encrustation makes this piece unique. From the Atocha (1622), with copy of letter from State Attorney’s office showing that Mel Fisher dropped charges against his son for the theft of this bar and others. Estimate: $6,000-$9,000.

66


67


Concepción, sunk in 1641 off Hispaniola

244. Small silver contraband “splash” ingot from the Concepción (1641), 243 grams. Roughly 4” in diameter and 1/4” thick. A crude, flat puddle of plain silver, no markings or encrustation, small piece of

edge possibly cut away in its time (assayer’s “bite”?), darkly toned. From the Concepción (1641). Estimate: $400-$600.

245. Small silver contraband “splash” ingot from the Concepción (1641), 134 grams. Roughly 3” in diameter and 1/8” thick. Plain disk of silver with one side smooth but the other quite cratered (as made),

somewhat darkly toned all over. From the Concepción (1641). Estimate: $300-$450.

Rooswijk, sunk in 1739 southeast of England 246. Neatly formed silver ingot from the Rooswijk (1739), 1965 grams, about 98.5% fine, with stamps of the Amsterdam chamber of the VOC (Dutch East India Co.) and “jumping goat” assayer-mark of Otto and/or Wouter Buck. About 6-1/2” x 1-1/2” x 1-1/2”. Very neatly cast and well preserved as usual, with very clear markings and no corrosion, the cut end with shallow depression filled with orange crud. From the Rooswijk (1739), with salvager’s tag #RK05A50267 and certificate. Estimate: $3,500-$5,000.

68


Copper Atocha, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida

247. Large copper ingot, approx. 57 lb, from the Atocha (1622). Roughly 15” x 12” x 3”. Unlike most specimens, this massive “pig” of copper is uncleaned and encrusted with white, shelly coral all over (one of the neatest we’ve seen) and bears the original salvage tag, great for display. From the Atocha (1622), with Fisher photo-certificate C106. Estimate: $800-$1,200.

Nuevo Constante, sunk in 1766 off New Orleans

248. Large copper ingot, approx. 110 lb, from the Nuevo Constante (1766), rare, ex-Dave Simmons. 17” in diameter and up to 3-1/2” thick. Much larger and rounder than the Atocha copper ingots from 144 years earlier but made the same way, this uncleaned piece has a remarkably smooth topside, pierced with small bubble holes here and there (one of which contains a modern drilled test-hole, in addition to another on the smooth part) and an attractively encrusted bottom (lots of green and brown color), but most important is its unique provenance, a Spanish merchant ship blown aground in a hurricane and non-commercially salvaged under the aegis of the State of Louisiana in the early 1980s. From the Nuevo Constante (1766) and pedigreed to the collection of Dave Simmons. Estimate: $1,500-up.

262. Mexico City, Mexico, 4 reales, Charles-Joanna, “Late Series,” assayer L to right, mintmark M to left, fused with a US Lincoln penny (date in the 1900s but not fully discernible). Nesmith 86 for type; S-M9. 11.68 grams. Truly one of the strangest things we have seen from a shipwreck, the 4R and penny clearly sharing the same bright-orange oxidation and encrustation, with the shield side of the 4R fairly well detailed and solid. This piece begs the question: How? Estimate: $175-$250.

263. Mexico City, Mexico, 2 reales, Charles-Joanna, “Late Series,” assayer G to left, mintmark M to right. Nesmith 45 for type; S-M5a. 5.85 grams. Broad, round flan with full legends and inner details, nicely toned, just with light surface corrosion all over. Estimate: $125-$200.

(See Internet for photo.) Estimate: $300-$450.

266. Mexico City, Mexico, 4 reales, Charles-Joanna, “Late Series,” assayer R to left, rare.

74


Lima 280. Lot of 3 Lima, Peru, early-pillars-type 4R (1) and 2R (2), Philip II, assayer Rincón. 20.27 grams total. Generally rare and desirable as the first coins minted in South America, but all with surface corrosion and small pieces of edge missing, still with some bold details and toned fields for contrast. Estimate: $500-$750.

281. Lot of 12 Lima, Peru, cob 8 reales, Philip II, assayer Diego de la Torre, various varieties. S-L4; KM14. 286.51 grams total.

Mostly solid coins with clear details

despite moderate to heavy corrosion and “chewing” around edges, light toning. (See Internet for photo.) Estimate: $1,250$2,000.

282. Lima, Peru, cob 4 reales, Philip II, assayer Diego de la Torre, P-4 to left, *-oD to right.

S-L4; KM-11; CT-318. 12.84 grams.

Choice, uncorroded specimen

with full and crisp details all over also nicely toned. Estimate: $250-$375.

283. Lot of 7 Lima, Peru, cob 4 reales, Philip II, assayer Diego de la Torre, various varieties. S-L4; KM-11. 82.50 grams total. Choice details but all with corrosion on surfaces or around edges, mostly nicely toned, a few with bits of coral encrustation. (See Internet for photo.) Estimate: $600-$900.

Potosí 285. Lot of 15 Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, Philip II, assayers B (various periods) and A. KM-5.1. 343.44 grams total. Mostly solid coins with clear details despite moderate to heavy corrosion and “chewing” around edges, light toning. (See Internet for photo.) Estimate: $1,250-$2,000.

286. Lot of 2 Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 and 4 reales, Philip II, assayer C under erasure, very rare. 31.22 grams total. Philip II assayer C is among the rarest of Potosí issues, and both of these coins display the assayer quite clearly, along with nice shields and a bold cross on the 4R; but corrosion on the surfaces and edges of these coins makes them hard for a specialist to appreciate. Nevertheless, contrasting toning and other good details make both coins great for study despite the corrosion. Estimate: $600-$900.

Potosí 8R

314. Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, Philip II, P-B “Great Module” (1st or 2nd period), pedigreed to the Atocha Research Collection (Plate Coin). S-P4; KM-5.1. 26.74 grams. In our Auction #6 we presented this coin as 1st-period (“Lima style”) B, for it has the fabric of a very early piece; yet the crown and the with-H HISPANIARVM in the legend indicate a slightly later issue (which is when the “Great Module” pieces of B were struck anyway). Adding to the confusion is a unique style of lions that was not used in either the earliest issues OR the 2nd period of B (just on this die). (Note that this is #53 in Paoletti, who exhibited similar vacillation in its attribution.) In any case it is an exceptional specimen, with incredibly bold, full details both in the legends and inside, nicely toned in crevices, and 100% corrosion-free. Great coin for either the advanced Potosí researcher or the Atocha specialist. Pedigreed to the Atocha Research Collection and Plate Coin #130 in the catalog, also pedigreed to our Auction #6, with original lot-tag #169, and with special Fisher photo-certificate #237784.

Cartagena

377. Cartagena, Colombia, cob 8 reales, 1622A, mintmark RN to left, choice Grade 1, rare, pedigreed to the Atocha Research Collection (Plate Coin) and Plate Coin in The Practical Book of Cobs. S-C2; KM-3.2; CT-251. 25.43 grams. This photogenic coin has a long pedigree dating back to Neil Harris’ The Numismatist article of October 1986 (Plate Coin #33) and most recently on the cover of the 1st quarter 2014 PLVS VLTRA newsletter, with the Atocha Research Collection (1988) and The Practical Book of Cobs (2007) in between! Not hard to see why: It is virtually uncorroded and beautifully toned, with choice full shield and cross (super detail, in fact clearly UNC), full mintmark RN and assayer A, plus clear middle digits of date. As the following two lots will indicate, this issue does not seem so rare after all, but consider that virtually all known specimens come from the 1622 Fleet, and most are corroded, doubled, split or all three! With Fisher photo-certificate #236050, Plate Coin #233 in the Atocha Research Collection catalog, also the Plate Coin on page 124 of the 4th edition (2007) of The Practical Book of Cobs. Estimate: $5,000-$7,500.

378. Cartagena, Colombia, cob 8 reales, 1622A, mintmark RN to left, Grade 1, rare. S-C2; KM-3.2; CT-251. 26.84 grams.

With Fisher-Sinclair photo-certificate #CH9-81-90948, and pedigreed to the Bill Wyatt collection. Estimate: $5,000-$7,500.

379. Cartagena, Colombia, cob 8 reales, 1622A, mintmark RN to left, Grade unknown, rare, with Fisher tag but certificate missing. S-C2; KM-3.2; CT-251. 17.18 grams. Immense flan with choice full shield and cross and much legend, including the full date, also nicely toned, but significantly underweight from corrosion, still quite eye-catching for its width alone. With Fisher tag #236095. Estimate: $3,500-$5,000.

380. Cartagena, Colombia, cob 4 reales, 1622A, mintmark S to left, Grade 1, very rare. S-C2; KM-2.3. 13.52 grams. A more exceptional example of this first Colombian half dollar cannot be imagined, for the date, crown, shield and cross-and-tressure are 100% full and bold, along with some legend, all beautifully toned on the fields and totally uncorroded. With Fisher-Sinclair photo-certificate #CH9-41-90952, and pedigreed to the Bill Wyatt collection. Estimate: $5,000-up.

With Fisher-Sinclair photo-certificate #CH9-21-92445, and pedigreed to the Bill Wyatt collection. Estimate: $1,500-up.

383. Cartagena, Colombia, cob 2 reales, 1622, no assayer, mintmark SF to left, Grade 1, very rare. S-C2CT-835. 5.75 grams. Choice full crown and shield with bold SF to left, 100% full date on reverse but the cross egregiously doubled, lightly toned all over, virtually no corrosion.

1652 Transitionals

495. Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1652E transitional Type I, very rare. S-P37; KM-A20.1; CT-unl. 24.37 grams. Impressively well-detailed and uncorroded (the low weight notwithstanding), this is one of the best-known specimens of the elusive first transitional Type, which is distinguished by the lack of a bottom (third) row above the waves. While it is somewhat double-struck, all the central data and even much of the legend are clear and prominent due to elegant toning on the fields. Estimate: $3,000-up.

108


496. Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1652E Transitional Type I, very rare. S-P37; KM-A20.1; CT-unl. 16.44 grams. Royal-like in detail, as everything is fully “struck up” and even the legends would be full if it weren’t for light corrosion and thinning, with contrasting toning all over and minimal doubling, very elusive as the first transitional Type without bottom (third) row above waves. Pedigreed to the Rob McClung collection. Estimate: $2,000-up.

497. Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1652E transitional Type IV. S-P37; KM-A20.4; CT-432. 26.59 grams. During the 1652 transition there appears to have been an effort to make some exceptional coins like this one that fall somewhere between Royals (which are round and even) and regular strikes (which are crude and uneven), and on coins like this the strikes are so full and well executed that it seems certain they were still meant to be presentation pieces, an opinion that is reflected in the presence of these coins in Lázaro’s book on Royals. The present specimen (very similar to Lázaro #125) bears full and bold legends and crisp and well-defined inner details, without even a trace of corrosion, also lightly toned, just a hint of (typical) doubling.

Potosí Silver Cobs Shield-type

886. Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, Philip II, assayer Rincón, very rare first 8 reales of the Potosí mint. S-P1; KM-5.1; CT-142. 27.25 grams. The most desirable coins of each of the main colonial mints are its first 8 reales, all very rare, and all with the same assayer-mark R for

Rincón (starting with Francisco in Mexico and continuing with his brother Alonso in Lima and Potosí). The Mexican is the rarest, represented by just 3 specimens, all from one shipwreck, the best of which sold at auction a few years ago for about $374,000. The Lima specimens are next, about 7-10 known, the best of which sold at auction decades ago for about $132,000. A not-so-distant third is Potosí, with about 1015 specimens known, the best of which sold at auction decades ago for about $25,000. Since then, the number of Potosí cob collectors has increased, and we can think of several advanced Potosí 8R collectors whose collections lack only this first issue under assayer Rincón. And this specimen is no slouch, with nearly full legends on a broad flan, beautifully toned XF+ (very natural-looking), full inner details, just regrettably double-struck all over. With Sedwick photo-certificate. Estimate: $5,000-up.

The present coin is the first and only example we know of struck in 1771 using a J die from 1770, with clear overdate and V/J over-assayer at bottom-left on the pillars side. Although the rest of the coin is typically crude, it is also very high grade (virtually AU), with hint of luster and practically no toning. Estimate: $500-up.

1064. Potosí, Bolivia, cob 1/2 real, 1766, unique with king’s ordinal III above monogram. S-P57. 1.58 grams. Charles III cob 1/2R are very difficult, for their monogram-side design is typically much larger than the

coin flans, such that only a poorly centered coin like this one can reveal details heretofore unknown, in this case the king’s ordinal III above the monogram. What’s also neat about this coin is that the date is visible below the cross. Deeply toned AVF with small hole near edge, quite an interesting coin overall for its size. Estimate: $60-$90.

1065. Potosí, Bolivia, cob 1/2 real, 1770, date in legend, rare. 1.64 grams. Off-center monogram with bold date in legend at about 7 o’clock, good full cross, richly toned VF, neat shape with three points. Estimate: $60-$90.

1066. Lot of 12 Potosí, Bolivia, cob 1/2R, all different dates: 1654, 1657, 1664E, 1676, 1690, 1706, 1716, 1737, 1747 Philip V, 172(5-7) Louis I, 1750 and 1767. Various weights. Nicely toned F-VF, all with good details, three with small holes but otherwise no damage, all with consignor’s notes on envelopes. The 1664, 1676 and 1750 are pedigreed to the Paul Karon collection (Ponterio, March 1990, lots 1079, 1098 and 1179), and the 1716 is pedigreed to the Almanzar auction of November 1981 (lot 263). (See Internet for photo.) Estimate: $500-$750.

1067. Lot of 15 Potosí, Bolivia, cob 1/2R, Charles II through Charles III, dates not visible. 19.47 grams total. Fine on average, mostly toned, no major damage. (See Internet for photo.) Estimate: $100-$150.

1545. Bronze breech-loading swivel cannon with Spanish crest and weight on trunnion cap as 34-1/4 quintales (about 134 pounds). 37” long and 8” across the trunnions. One of the most impressive swivel cannons we have ever offered, attractive not only for its compact size and lovely patina but also for the bold crowned coat-of-arms (lions and castles, possibly engraved after original casting) on top between the trunnions, some coral still inside the barrel, 2-1/2” bore, open sides and end at breech for attaching a tiller handle. It should be noted that this iconic piece was on display at the museum set up by the salvagers (Grumpy, Inc) in Grand Bay, Alabama, and is appearing on the market now for the first time. The historic importance of this wreck (basically a loss that caused Spain to give up its holdings in North America) combined with the beauty and size of this piece make it one of the most coveted items we have ever offered at auction. Estimate: $25,000-up.

Nautical 1584. Brass/iron nautical dividers, Dutch, 1600s. 47 grams, 4-3/4” long. Fully functional and intact, both the brass part at top and the iron points (still sharp), well known from wrecks but never intact like this. Estimate: $200-$300.

1585. Ebony octant, probably English, early to mid-1700s. 1203 grams, roughly 15” x 13” x 3”. This navigational device was used to measure astronomical angles and therefore was most useful to sailors who needed to know latitudes. After the astrolabe came the quadrant, which by definition measured a quarter circle, but that device was cumbersome and came to be replaced with the octant (or reflecting quadrant), which utilized mirrors to get quarter-circle measurement from a device that was, in effect, only one-eighth of a circle. Technical specifications aside, this piece consists of an ebony frame with ivory inlay for gradations (lacking numbers or any printing) and with brass index arm and pinhole sight and mounts for the three mirrors (one of which is missing, as is also the sighting telescope that was used in conjunction with the octant but was typically a separate item). On the backside are three legs, as this octant was designed to be used horizontally, not vertically as in later years. Everything seems to be intact (except for some empty holes for bolts that may have been stabilizers) and in working order, but our interest of course is in its value and historical importance as a navigational antique. Pedigreed to our Auction #3, lot #1113. Estimate: $400-$600.

This manufacturer is known to have operated from 1784 to 1840. Choice condition. Estimate: $200-$300.

Equestrian

1588. Spanish colonial brass espuelas (spurs) with steel rowels and rawhide straps, late 1700s to early 1800s. 798 grams, each spur about 8”. Original, as-found condition, made of ornate cast brass with steel rowels (found only on South American spurs) with dark

patina and rawhide leather straps and buckles. With photo-certificate. Estimate: $300-$450.

1589. Pair of brass Spanish covered stirrups (estribos), late 1700s to early 1800s. 1950 grams total, each about 10” long.
