Other Shipwreck artefacts include belt buckles and brass or
bronze ship fittings to personal items such as pocket watches, keys, watch
winders and accessories.
Many coins are encrusted over many years in the seas as
shell can oxidize over the coins
But why did so many belt buckles survive shipwreck artefacts?
Most were Spanish soldiers on ships to the new world and they
would have several uniforms from formal to casual to military, so when ship sunk these
belt buckles survived but the rest of the uniform deteriorated .a few buttons
are found but even helmets are scarce to find as the currents carried these helmets
away till damaged beyond recognition .Same as Spanish boots they just
deteriorate and we are left with few belt buckles
