The iron latch on the front closes snugly and holds the lid firmly in place, however there is no locking mechanism. This box likely was used to hold valuables such as these 8 reales! Neither the gold coin nor any of the gold chains are included with this lot. Indicated in the photos below are the weights and details of each coin. For a minority of the dated coins, the date was extrapolated from fragments of numbers, and are subject to minor errors.
Feel free to make me an offer on the lot. If you prefer just the coins without the box, please let me know and I can adjust the price for you accordingly. The item "Shipwreck Treasure Collection!
