Cut end of an Anglo-Saxon gold ingot (ca. 800 AD). 18.63 grams, 1” long. We have had small silver ingots from the Viking area and time period, but this is the first gold piece we have ever seen, obviously cut from a similar bar of unknown length but about 3/8" wide and ¼" tall, of high grade and very smooth and rounded (not crude). It was found in England, traced to the Anglo-Saxons, and is undoubtedly quite rare and worth many times its melt value. With letter of provenance from the British Museum
