Mystery photos

Attached are three pictures  of  a "Coat of Arms" that I am told was flotsam from a vessel that sank near the mouth of the St . Lawrence river in  the late 1800 or early 1900s. According to my informant, the vessel was carrying dried beans from Argentina bound for Quebec when it sprung a leak in its hull, which resulted in the beans swelling and the ship sinking. It may have  hung over (or next to) the entrance to  the vessel's deck-house.
I'm looking to confirm the likelihood of this story, the identity of the ship, the name of its master, the transport company involved and/or any other information.
