Large silver bar, 13.12 kg, marked with owner/shipper's cipher MOs, fineness UUCCCLXX (2370/2400 fine) followed by illegible assayer cartouche, plus complete crowned-arms tax stamp. 15" x 5-1/2" x 1-1/2" A wide and relatively thin bar with somewhat irregular top surface (more like a "tumbaga" bar but with 1600s markings), the lions-and-castles tax stamp and mysterious "MOs" marking very clear but the other markings weaker, assayer's "bite" in one side (hence Oruro mine), some pitting but overall very solid and quite a bit scarcer than the big bars from the Atocha (1622). From the Maravillas (1656).
