The Treasure of 1715 Fleet
This Coin was recovered from the Spanish 1715 Fleet and is an authentic Spanish Cob .
When finally sailing from Havana on July 24 , the 1715 Fleet of twelve or thirteen galleons was overloaded and it was well into hurricane season. Seven days later what may have been the greatest disaster to strike the spanish Fleet became a reality as all the ships, their cargo and as many as 1000 lives were lost. Several of the ships sank in shallow water and salvage operations by the spanish of those wrecks took place over the next several years. Unfortunately , much of the treasure was lost in water too deep for breath-holding divers. The treasure was recovered in 1983 by Mel Fisher.
