Copper 24 deniers or double sols of Louis XV (1715-1774) of France referred to as a French colonial 'stampee', used in the West Indies, with a large crowned 'C' stamped on the obverse, but a blank reverse.

In 1763 the first stampee, or sol tampé, of 24 deniers was authorized. This was a small copper disk stamped on the obverse with a crowned C (for Colonies) and a blank reverse. From dates on the undertypes …

A copper eight maravedis of Philip IV (1621-1665) of Spain, dated to 1626 to the right of the shield on the reverse. The surface of the coin is heavily clipped and worn so that the numerals indicating the value of the coin are illegible but to the left of the shield on the obverse might possibly by part of a letter B for the mint of Burgos. Cayón (2005) illustrate a similar eight maravedis coin of Philip IV, minted at Burgos in 1625, on p.629, no.5328.

A copper-alloy fragment from the body of a cauldron.
