Pirate treasure rescued from the deep crosses auction block: Monday Morning Brief, Apr. 27, 2015

This week one of few examples available from a pirate vessel that wrecked off the coast of Massachusetts is offered in an auction. The coin shows the effects of 26 decades in the murky deep, but that can’t diminish the shine in collectors’ eyes.
