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.
