Spanish Retrieve Long Lost Treasure.

Spanish cultural officials got their first look at the Nuestra Senora de las Mercedes treasure that last saw daylight in 1804. The 14.5 metric tons of treasure and wreckage found is worth an estimated $500 million dollars but the Spanish say the treasure is priceless comparing it to the “Mona Lisa.” The finders of the treasure hotly contested that they deserved to keep the treasure but courts ruled in the Spaniards favor who likened U.S. Salvage company to modern day pirates. Peru a country that found it’s independence in 1824 also made a claim to hault the treasure being handed over to the Spanish as it was the Western Seat of the Spanish empire but the judge ruled in the Spanish flavor. I guess winning wasn’t enough though as they are now petitioning to get the U.S. Salvage company to also pay for their court fees. Yikes. Hit the jump for more. PaulDaPro
