Silver bar #616, 43 lb 4.4 oz troy, Class Factor 0.9, with markings of manifest 145, fineness 2380/2400 and various owners/shippers, from the Atocha (1622). 13-3/4" x 4" x 2-1/4". This ingot is remarkable for its smaller size (about the half the larger "loaves" but not a still-smaller "barreton") and abundance of visible markings, including at least four different owner/shipper monograms (including MB for Munibe, named on manifest), several of which are cancelled but also some engraved over top of old (and clear) circular tax stamps (thus indicating re-use and/or transfer of ownership), also with very clear manifest CXLIIIII and fineness IIUCCCLX(XX) (mis-stated on certificate as 2350), and silvermaster V (de Vreder), plus the usual cylindrical assayer's "bite" at one end, minimal surface corrosion and nice reddish toning all over. From the Atocha (1622), with Fisher photo-certificate #85A-S616 and original gray plastic TSI tag.
