Group of Nine different Spanish Pirate Cobs. No two alike with varied shapes & sizes and heavier weights. Some thick and thin. Curled or split ends. Sizes range between our USA Roosevelt Dime, Jefferson Nickel and George Washington Quarter.
The metals used at the time did not hold up, especially in Salt water!
Some cobs have different designs as the fabricator could easily heat and stretch the metal and stamp over the existing image of an ancient coin or another cob.
When these coins are found, they generally have heavy incrustation and had to be cleaned to show detail.
Mate… just use your Imagination… think where this Authentic Cob might have been… how long these was Buried before Discovered !
