    Spanish Cob Pendant - Sad

    Found this yesterday during a morning beach hunt. Looked like a treasure hunter had his prized find made into a pendant. I was thinking wow, some poor sap found this on the beach and then lost it years later only to be found by another treasure hunter. I don't take my reading glasses while on the beach, so I didn't realize it was a cheap tourist copy until I got back to the truck and saw the obvious seam. Disappointing to say the least. Looks like an imitation of a Spain Philip II gold Cob Escudo ND (1556-98) Seville mint. Wonder why they put the 1822 date on it?

    I pulled one of those out of the sand in the lower keys ocean side a few years back, but without the pendant. I knew it was crap when I first saw it in the scoop, but when I rubbed it and saw what it was, it did make me do a triple take. So, so very wrong to find one of those in the ocean, especially in the keys.

    Spanish Cob Pendant - Sad

    Copy coins usually need to say copy or some indicator that makes it being a copy obvious. In this case its the completely wrong date of 1822. Otherwise itd be considered a counterfeit.
