Does anyone own Treasure Bullion?

Hi All

Very simple question.  Does anyone own any treasure coins / bullion? By that I mean recovered treasure from:

1715 Fleet (Atocha etc)

Gairsoppa

HMS Edinburgh

USS Central America

Saddle Ridge Hoard

etc

RMS Douro sovereigns crop up on eBay fairly often at reasonable prices.

 

The only treasure like gold I have are my Spanish King Phillip II gold cob escudos (doubloons) of pirate fame.

Funnily enough, was tidying up my junk box when I found this in a small envelope inside a flip.   I have absolutely no idea where I got it but I'm not complaining.  Think it's a 1671 Charles II half merk, obverse isn't great but reverse has some decent detail.  Thankfully, I didn't just chuck t thinking it was just a old flip.

Well, I ended up removing the label on my Gairsoppa 1/4 oz coins.  I wanted to check them out, and the label was filthy.  At some point in the process, the tube slipped out of my hands.  I went to grab it, but instead swatted it across the room.  Regretfully, the cap came off and sprayed the coins across the living room like a shotgun.  I found 13 of them so far.  Ugh, still searching.

Ouch! I feel for you.

Recovered.  One coin was damaged.  I ordered a new one to replace it.

Put the damaged coin in an AirTite coin holder and now you can keep it as a pocket piece/lucky coin to carry along with you all the time. :)
