Cut gold bar endpiece #VII, 19¼K, from the "Golden Fleece wreck" (ca. 1550). 129 grams, 2" x 7/8" x 7/16". A neatly-cut "thumb" of gold (one end rounded) with clear fineness as XIX in one box and dot in another at the very tip, cleaned and devoid of encrustation, yellower and shinier than most, highly desirable as a small enough piece to have been used as a coin in its time, traditionally worth many times its melt value. From the "Golden Fleece wreck" (ca. 1550), with certificate.
