All items are genuine unless noted. Most shipwreck coins and artifacts come with a certificate of authenticity (please check the description for each item).
Small, Chinese, black soapstone buddha, probably rare. 6.7 grams, roughly 1¼" x ¾" x ½". Small figurine of a buddha lying on his side, resting on one elbow, with flat base, a bit worn and hard to distinguish minute features, but apparently intact and encrusted with small bits of encrustation here and there. Curiously, in his "accession records" (see lot #1654) Art does mention some "buddhas" that probably refer to this exact item and others. From the Capitana El Rubí and pedigreed to Art McKee's Sunken Treasure Museum, with certificate.
