Authentic 3-digit Date Potosi Half-Real Silver Shipwreck Cob Coin & Custom Bezel

Augustine (Florida), all coins in the group were collected over time by a local historian and beachcomber who, in his younger years, chased after tropical storms and hurricanes on the Atlantic coast in hopes of finding newly-uncovered treasures. The lot off coins are from his estate, and the above information is all I know about the history of the coins in general, though there is nothing more specific than that for any individual coin in the collection.

This coin still retains a very visible/clear three-digit date, reading "617" (1617) on one side (see photos), with the opposite side of the coin showing part of a small partial cross (w/ lions, castles) which is very small but in excellent, clearly-defined form. The coin is mounted in this custom made bezel setting pendant, and the bezel itself is Sterling Silver.

Gross weight of the entire item is approximately 3.89 grams.
