Eight Escudos Coin 1715
Sometimes, an inheritance can be worth more than you first thought. This old coin came into Jody’s possession after a family member passed. She thought it might be worth a fair amount of money and hoped to get a couple of thousands for it. After thorough checks, the coin – which was in an excellent condition – turned out to be worth $17K! It was made in Lima and probably sank to the bottom of the sea after a shipwreck. The pawn stars struck a deal and bought it for $11K, which is still a lot more than the $2K she was expecting for it.
