Cut gold "finger" bar #25, 563 grams, fineness XXI-dot-dot (21.5K), marked with foundry / owner SARGOSA / PECARTA and several tax stamps, ex-Atocha (1622), ex-Caesars Palace auction (1987). 7-1/2" long, 1" wide, 5/16" thick. Rather tidy, flat, medium-sized ingot with half-chiseled, half-broken cut in one end, the other end with cylindrical assayer's "bite," Treasure Salvors number A85-25 engraved near one end on bottom (next to an old sticker) which also has a small streak of whitish coral encrustation, the smooth top with three bold finenesses XXI in one box and two dots in another, plus five tax stamps and a full but faint SARGOSA PECARTA foundry cartouche near the uncut end, heavily pedigreed and attractive. From the Atocha (1622), with original Fisher photo-certificate #85A-GB025, pedigreed to the Caesars Palace auction of September 26, 1987 (lot #25), with original catalog, Treasure Salvors' 1981 booklet The Treasure of 1622, Mathewson book The Search for Nuestra Senora de Atocha (1985 second printing), and original manifest report from Gene Lyon. Recovered from: Atocha, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida
