Stolen boxed 'Piece of Eight'

A boxed 'Piece of Eight' coin (a silver Spanish dollar) which came from a ship called The Hollyander which struck Gunners Rock off the Isles of Scilly in 1743 has been stolen in Norfolk. The stolen coin is thought to date 1736 or near to that date. The box which has also been stolen is dark navy in colour and contained a slip of paper detailing the history of the coin.
