These Ten (X) Cash coins were struck in 1808 for the East India Company (EIC) for use in India. They were struck in Birmingham, England and then were to be sent by ship to India and this is where the problem started. The ship they were sent on sank on the Goodwin Sands, unfortunately all hands on board were lost and the ship stayed there until about 20 years ago when it was re-discovered.
We recently bought from one of the divers, his choice of Ten (X) Cash coins that he personally brought up with his own hands. Because they were submerged for almost 200 years most of the coins are in a remarkably high state of preservation.  Own a real piece of British / Indian Treasure coin for far less than you might expect to pay. These are a wonderful conversation piece as well as true treasure coins and a great item to show your friends.

Each coin comes with a certificate of authenticity.

16x Folding Magnifying Glass

This is the type of magnifying glass that dealers take with them when they go out to look at coins. It is a 16 x Wide Field folding magnifying glass. The way to use it is to put the glass near your eye and then bring the thing you want to see into the glass until it is focused. These come to us from the United States. The quality is very good and it folds into itself to protect the lens.
