Vf/ef Ducaton 1658 From Slot Ter Hooge Shipwreck Dutch East Indiaman For Sale

Vf/ef Ducaton 1658 From Slot Ter Hooge Shipwreck Dutch East Indiaman


hiron Store This is just a beautiful heavy solid silver Ducaton of Phillip IIII dated 1658. It is 44mm or 1.7 inches diameter and weighs in at a hefty 32.30 gms. It was recovered from the wreck of the Dutch East Indiaman VOC SLOT ter HOOGE ( Hooge Castle ) which sunk off Porto Santo near Madiera in 1724. It comes complete with a certificate of authenticity .

John Lethbridge, a local wool merchant, lived in Wolborough Street, Newton Abbot.

Little is known of his childhood, but as from at the age of forty, John Lethbridge soon came to the notice of the London-based Shipping Companies: the English East India Company, Verenigde Oostindishche Companie (VOC) , the symbol for the Dutch United East India company, and the diving fraternity. He was to be known as the English man from Devon who invented a unique type of 'diving engine'.

Lethbridge’s improved engine differed greatly from the traditional diving bell and other diving apparatus. His invention offered greater under water mobility and better working conditions for the 'fisher' (diver) thus proving more successful when retrieving 'treasures' and lost cargo from the sunken ship wrecks on behalf of the various shipping companies

Over the next thirty years Lethbridge was to prosper. So successful, he rose from an unsuccessful wool merchant, struggeling to support his family, to, eventually, a man of wealth, owning the estate of Odicknoll in Kingskerswell
