In just 40 succinct pages, Carol Tedesco's Treasure Coins of the Nuestra Senora de Atocha and the Santa Margarita answers all the most frequently asked questions about shipwreck recovered treasures, including what the coins look like when first discovered, how they are cleaned, conserved, and graded, what they were worth in the 17th century, the meaning of the various markings, and the names and periods of office of the men who made them. Of particular interest to "cob" coin enthusiasts is a section devoted to the exceedingly rare Old World minted coins discovered on the Atocha and the Santa Margarita.
