    Default Royal Navy Steamer "Flamer" 1833 bill of lading bag of 250 Spanish Gold Doubloons

    Bill Of Lading for 250 Spanish Gold Doubloons 1833 per "Flamer" Steamer Lt. Bastard. This British Royal Navy support vessel carried mail and see what else. Look at the Spanish Gold Doubloons listed in cargo. Complete with the red wax seal. The trip was from Malta to Gibraltar 30 June 1833. Lt. Bastard in command. Yes it is a good one. Another good one an old letter on the Flamer. Same time era. Same commander Lt. Bastard. I don't own the letter but do own the gold cargo with red wax seal.
