The Practical Book of Cobs is now available in an enlarged, illustrated Fourth Edition. This is Sedwick's Twentieth Anniversary Edition of a classic reference work. The new edition is the result of extensive study over more than two decades by father and son, both noted coin experts. The book includes a map that charts 55 shipwrecks around the world that yielded Spanish cob coins. Since each cob coin is unique and bears so much information, by using Sedwick's book as a guide, a diver or coin owner can identify the period and thus often identify the shipwreck from which it came. A coin from a shipwreck could not have been minted after the ship sank. Information provided in the book is so precise, that even if only partial stamping can be read from a shipwreck coin, it enables identification. For anyone interested in Spanish colonial history, shipwrecks, or coinage The ractical Book of Cobs is a must. It is an interesting read and offers insight into treasure coins from a fascinating period of conquest. The book is an essential guide and referencework for divers and shipwreck enthusiasts, with information that is not readily available or only available after searching many reference works or auction catalogs. Value ranges for cob coins are provided in an appendix.
