    1500's Pirate Treasure?

    I had a request to post these two pictures here to see if anyone can shed some light on what he might have here.

    Sorry, GOHO, I don't have any details. I'll see if I can find out where this wreck is located.

    I'm no expert but the little guys with the fan on their heads remind me of Incan stlye.

    Incan/Mayan gold. The first is almost undoubtedly a cannon. On the lower half of it you can see one of the support arms.

    Might have a trunion on the bottom. Would be like a demi saker. Those look like Tairona tumbarga figures, on a display in a museum.

    The gold here is a nicer quality than what I have seen in Mayan museum displays. What I have seen is darker and less pure and not worked as well.

    Nice Indian relic to the side there too !

    You also have a polished stone ax, as well as an obsidian blade. It looks like someone took a photograph of a museum shell.

    The iron cannon looks it's an early 18th century gun, by the bulky looks of it,

    Re: 1500's Pirate Treasure?

    Cannon looks short... broken maybe? Can't tell. Middle figure looks like enhanced surface tumbaga, Quimbaya culture(north of Tolima and west of Colima/Musica). What's supposedly the connection?

    Re: 1500's Pirate Treasure?

    The object just left of the trunion and on the top side of the cannon resembles (to these eyes) a powder chamber for a breech loader. The hollowed-out chamber area is evident; the handle for the chamber is less obvious.
    Can you provide the scale of these objects?
