Contraband silver "wedge" ingot from the 1733 Fleet. 760 grams, about 4" radius, 2" tall. A nearly fully encrusted wedge of silver (fineness unknown), the usual form for contraband (as a whole "pie" of wedges fit neatly in the bottom of a barrel), the encrustation as much as 3/8" thick in places and showing small pieces of wood and iron in addition to shell bits, all dark in color, a great display.
