Description: This exceptional 1 real cob minted at Potosi in 1668 is a shining example of the coins recovered from the 1715 Fleet. Dated on the obverse to 1668, this coin was likely part of a sailor’s pocket change and was miraculously preserved for 300 years. With such high levels of preservation and tone still intact, this coin is a gem specimen. Very rarely do silver shipwreck cobs receive such high grades!
