Spanish Ship El Cazador

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The ship El Cazador (meaning The Hunter in English) was a Spanish Brig. On October 20, 1783 it was sent by Charles III of Spain on a mission to bring much-needed hard currency to the Spanish colony of Louisiana. The ship sailed to Vera Cruz, Mexico where it was loaded with silver coins. On January 11, 1784, it sailed for New Orleans, and was never heard from again.

Then, on August 2, 1993, the trawler Mistake, while fishing in the Gulf of Mexico fifty miles south of New Orleans, hung its net on a snag. The trawler was captained by Jerry Murphy, and its home port was Pascagoula, Mississippi. When the crew hoisted the net and dumped the contents on the deck, they found the net was filled with silver coins. The all of the coins bore markings from the Spanish mint in Mexico, along with the date 1783.
