1783 Mo FF 8 Reales Silver Coin El Cazador Shipwreck Americas 1st Dollar AMS Slabbed - NO RESERVE. This is a Genuine Shipwreck Spanish Colonial 8 Reales Silver coin in handsome "America's First Silver Dollar" informational slab. EL CAZADOR was a Spanish Brig in the fleet of Charles III loaded with newly-minted Mexico Coinage bound for French Colonial New Orleans in 1784. It never reached its destination. On August 2, 1993, the first coins of its massive cargo re-emerged in the nets of a fishing trawler named "THE MISTAKE".
AMS, the company that slabbed this coin, does not mention the shipwreck name due to a legal/licensing issue with the originators of the find. As research will show, this is the only shipwreck this coin would have originated from, given the information provided on the slab and the date/condition of the coin.
