Leocadia Shipwreck Bronze Nail

The Spanish ship, Leocadia, departed Paita, Peru, bound for Panama in a convoy of merchant vessels with 2,100,000 pesos in gold and silver coins on board.  On November, 16, 1800, the Leocadia struck a rocky shoal and broke apart 100 yards from the beach at Punta Santa Elena, Ecuador.  Over 140 lives were lost in the disaster.  Within the next year, the Spanish salvaged about 90% of the registered treasure and ship rigging.

During World War II, the United States had an airbase close to where this ship lay and during their off hours, service personnel used to find coins, particularly after strong winds.

The shipwreck nails were used in the construction of the ill-fated Leocadia.  There are only 2 known Spanish galleons that were fitted with bronze.

Comes complete with Certificate of Authenticity.
