I believe the coin being shown is a version of this:
(I'm not claiming it is real, but giving you something to compare and search against.)

Can't confirm without providence that the coin is a shipwreck coin. It looks alright but being encased in a bezel and looking at the images alone is not enough to be 100% on authenticity either.

In the Great Lakes?
I have an1864 Uncirc. Details from The Pewabic that was given to me by a friend.
The details of her sinking (1865) are interesting but makes you wonder "What the he** were they thinking passing that close to their sister ship?"
