Treasure of The HMS FEVERSHAM 1711. This 8 Reales Cob is from the HMS FEVERSHAM. About 100 died in the disaster while the remaining 49 survivors were able to bribe a passing French fisherman to take them to New York for 200 pounds apparently no one British or French was able to salvage anything from the wreck in its time. In the mid-1980s the Feversham was again salvaged by a new group of divers. The Feversham numismatic yield was small in comparison with Spanish galleon treasures, but quite important as across section of coinage in circulation in New York at the time..
Mostly it was Spanish American silver Cobbs and Massachusetts Bay colony shillings, many of the former rare, with adjustments plugs to bring them up to standard. A small group of gold Cobbs almost entirely Bogotá two escudos, virtually identical to those in the Spanish 1715 fleet were found in later salvage efforts. An abundance of auctions offered these coins from 1989 through 1999. This cob was minted in Mexico City, Mexico under the reign of King Charles II assayer not visible.
