1758 ~ Hms Invincible ~ Genuine Shipwreck Recovered Cannon Flint Block + Cert For Sale
This is a rare large cannon lock flint recovered from the wreck of HMS Invincible which sank in 1758. Very knapped and good detail.
When the ship went down in the Solent at Southampton, England, it was fully provisioned to commence a long voyage. The wreck lay covered for over 200 years until by chance a fisherman snagged his nets on the ship and subsequent dives discovered a wealth of store items in the preserved lower decks.
The ship carried experimental flintlocks on the cannons. This large flint (3.5cm x 3.5 cm) was used in these cannon locks. They are very rare to find and highly sought afterby collectors.To recover flints for these cannons amongst the gunnery stores on the lower decks were a highly unexpected find.
The flint comes in an excellent embossed presentation gift box and a certificate of authenticity. I will also include ainformationbooklet that providesa detailed accountof the history of HSM Invincibleand the wreck.Superb unusual genuine maritime relic with provenance from a famous British Royal Navy Warship. Would be a great addition to any collection or make a very appreciated unexpected style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt; text-align: center;" class="MsoNormal" align="center">
