Why add this Silver Ecu from the shipwreck of La Dromadaire to your collection?

This French Silver Ecu is an authentic artifact from an 18th century shipwreck! La Dromadaire was a vessel owned by the French East India Company that departed from the Port of Lorient on February 6th 1762. After thirteen days at sea, inclement weather caused the ship to sink near the Cape Verde Islands. Built in 1758, the 520 ton ship carried 154 people (of which 77 survived), 20 guns, 1000 cannon balls and a chest of silver. The wreck of Le Dromadaire was discovered in January 1996, leading to the recovery of 3,377 coins.

Design of the French Silver Ecu

The obverse features a portrait of the King of France, either Louis XIV or Louis XV. The reverse design is composed of elements from the French Coat of Arms: a cluster of fleur-de-lis symbols at the center surrounded by a wreath, with an ornate crown above. Inscriptions include date of issue and Mint mark.

Shipwreck Coin
I was somewhat disappointed with the coin I received due to the amount of damage it had. Regardless of this fact the coin was graded genuine from a La Dromadaire shipwreck, which only adds to its pedigree. You definitely cannot find a better price if you wanted to add this specific shipwreck coin to your collection.

nice unique coin
Inexpensive coin I was impressed with the condition of the reverse. all the lettering is readable, quite a bit of detail considering it has been underwater since before the United States was a country. will make a nice addition to my collection.
