Complete gold "finger" bar #39, 1108 grams, 17K. 10" long, 1" wide. A full, long ingot of relatively lower-fineness gold, with the fineness (here as XVII) typically marked five times down the length of the rounded side, the flat topside caked with white coral in the middle, its surfaces lightly scratched here and there (some of the scratches clearly pre-salvage, as they terminate underneath the coral), bright yellow gold and impressive like all big ingots. Recovered from: "Golden Fleece wreck," sunk ca. 1550 in the northern Caribbean
