Shipwreck Artifacts

 

The heart of every treasure wreck is its cargo of coins and bullion, but there is treasure to be found in everything else the wreck yields, as this page will clearly show! In addition to mundane items like nails and spikes, there is also gold jewelry, pearls and emeralds, and even weapons and personal effects that are all much, much rarer than coins. The key to these items is provenance, and we do our best to make sure the origin of each item is preserved and certified.

from Capitana sunk 1654 off Ecuador

Large pewter strainer (14"). Flat, round disk with holes in irregular intervals, warped around the edge and with small pieces missing but fundamentally intact, light sheen of encrustation all over, pedigreed to our Auction #6 (lot 1727). Bronze cannonball, rare. 23 lb, 5-1/5" in diameter. A perfectly round but oddly cracked ball (probably due to casting the bronze around an iron core), one of just a few found only on this ship, their reason for being believed to be related to the fact that normal iron cannonballs tended to rust away on the usually quiet Pacific coast. With Bob Marx photo-certificate. Recovered from: Capitana (Jesús María de la Limpia Concepción), sunk in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador. k111303864002 $795
