1715 FLEET CANNON FIND! COLOMBIA 2 ESCUDOS NGC 62 PIRATE GOLD COINS SHIPWRECK
1715 FLEET CANNON COIN! COLOMBIA 2 ESCUDOS 1694-17 NGC 62 PIRATE GOLD COINS
Featured in publication and QUEEN'S JEWELS COA. THREE (3) COA's TOTAL!
This very special piece was discovered in the 2010 Cannon find, see gallery pictures showing the Cannon.
There were 24 coins (most were 1 Escudos) found inside the Cannon bore hole after conservation. 1715 FLEET CANNON coin is extremely large for a 2 Escudos and displays the Full Cross & Shield as well as partial Legends. The Luster is incredible. I very rarely say this, but this Doubloon is severely under graded in my opinion (looks to be at minimum a 64)! The CANNON discovery was on July 11, 2010 in 16' of water. There were 22 gold 2 Escudos found laying next to the bronze swivel cannon and another 25 Gold 2 Escudos discovered inside the bore hole (once conservation was complete).
COLOMBIA "MINT STATE!" This breathtaking “1715 FLEET” GOLD COB was discovered back in 2010 (Ship: Gold Hound) Assayer NV, Mint Santa Fe de Bogota. The color is just stunning – a deep rich butterscotch Buttery LUSTER is emanating from the entire piece, with underlying Shipwreck Toning . The CROSS is fully displayed, with NO doubling. It’s a Full Bold Cross (some pieces have very thin and broken crosses).
