Hello. I received this treasure coin as a gift and I've forgotten some of the details about it. Can someone verify the date for me?
This coin was found in an unknown wreck off of Puerto Rico. There have been 4 owners (that is since it was rescued from underwater). The second bought it originally from Mel Fisher. A friend of mine bought it from this gentleman and gave it to me.
I believe it is a 2 Reales coin from 1690. I know it's dated and there is more information on the coin but I'm not very good at deciphering it. Is it Spanish, Mexican...?
The bezel is 14 kt gold. I like the way it holds the coin in prongs. I guess this style of bezel is imperative since the shape is irregular.
