Gold "oro corriente" cut piece with stamp "C" for Charles I of Spain, 52.18 grams, from an unidentified early 1500s wreck in the Caribbean. Roughly 1-1/2" x 1". A neat right-angle cut of a gold "splash" ingot, with traces of coral and toned partial stamp (inside box) on rounded side, rather hefty for its size, nearly the weight of two 8 escudos! From an unidentified early 1500s wreck in the Caribbean.
