Labor Day Treasure from the Atocha

Captain Andy Matrocis crew on the JB Magruder found an intact rapier, a dueling sword. This slender, sharply pointed sword was used for thrusting attacks and features a complex hilt, which was constructed to provide protection for the hand wielding it. This sword, along with one silver coin, was found at the northernmost point of the carpenters trail of the Atocha.
