Here are some relics from an unknown ship which wrecked on a lee shore just short of the safety of Roadtown Harbor, Tortola, about 1778.

Smuggling and the arms business were always important in the Caribbean Sea and never more so than in the years of the American Revolution. Here are some relics from an unknown ship which wrecked on a lee shore just short of the safety of Roadtown Harbor, Tortola, about 1778. Most of the cargo of small arms and musket balls was probably salvaged at the time, and the ship claimed by the sea.

LARGE BRONZE SHIP SPIKES. $40 for five spikes.
SMALL, BRONZE COPPERING NAILS. Used to fasten copper sheet to the hull below the waterline to protect the vessel from shipworms. $20 for five.
LEAD MUSKET BALLS & SMALL SHOT. $20 for five.
