Recovered undersea treasure on display at Caesars The richest undersea New World treasure ever recovered is on display now through Sept. 23 at Caesars Palace. The display consists of millions of dollars worth of gold, silver and jewels from the 17th-century Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Atocha. The display, open to the public without charge in the Las Vegas resort's north casino, is a prelude to a public auction in Caesars' Circus Maximus Showroom on Sept. 26, with private previews for prospective purchasers on Sept. 23 through 26. The auction is jointly presented by Columbus Industries Inc. of Reno; Historic Treasure Management of Key West, Fla.; Vanguard Ventures of New York; Butterfield & Butterfield of San Francisco, and Caesars Palace. The sale marks the first time a significant portion of Atocha's treasures has been made available to the public. Sunk in 1622, off the coast of Key West, the Atocha was loaded with riches bound for Spain when it was caught in a hurricane and hit a reef. r f I i .iirr.TrXI Treasures salvors president Mel Fisher with gold bars and chains recovered from the Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Atocha. The 1985 recovery of its main hull, by the Florida-based firm Treasure Salvors, spearheaded by famed treasure hunter Mel Fisher, has been the subject of two National Geographic television specials, and numerous other national and international news stories. The discovery ended an incredible 16-year struggle with the sea, weather, legal battles for ownership, modern-day pirates and the drudgery of the day-to-day search. "This will be a great opportunity for people who are fascinated with the intrigue, excitement and magic of sunken treasure," said Columbus President Fred Holabird. Selections chosen for the Caesars Palace exhibit are open for viewing 24 hours daily in the resort's Olympic Casino. Many of the key pieces found will be on display, including gold bars and chains, a coral rosary with a gold cross, a gold cup, gold and silver coins, uncut emeralds and items from everyday life aboard ship in the 17th Century. Bidders' paddles for auction admission will be sold for $100, which is refundable to those who make a purchase.
