Stack of fused contemporary Quarters. Eight coins joined by heavy encrustation. 14.6 mm tall, though stacked slightly askew. Though the reeding is clear on the side of the blackened cylindrical form, few design details may be discerned.
Wood and minerals surround the structure in a stirring conglomeration that remains positioned exactly as it was at the moment of the ship's descent and for the past fourteen decades on the ocean floor. A unique souvenir, one that bespeaks an incredible story. It can readily be imagined that such a cluster-a virtual collection-would all by itself be a fantastic historical or numismatic exhibit and would create wide attention.
