FROM THE LUCAYAN BEACH SHIPWRECK CIRCA 1628. SILVER PENDANT AND 30 INCH CHAIN. TOTAL WEIGHT 54.1 GRAMS. FROM SPINK & SON LTD LONDON.
Hi, I dont have the spink and sons box with it. THE 1628 SHIPWRECK DISCOVERED ON LUCAYAN BEACH. The Lucayan Beach wreck/treasure, sunk off Grand Bahama Island in the Bahamas. Since the accidental discovery in 1964 of around 10,000 silver cobs (dated up to and including 1628) in 10 feet of water just 1,300 yards from the Lucayan Beach Hotel, the mystery of identifying the lost vessel has never been solved.
Because of the date, popular opinion associates the wreck with the taking of the Spanish 1628 Fleet in Matanzas Bay, Cuba by the Dutch pirate/national hero Piet Heyn, who reported losing two of the vessels on the way back to Europe.
