Cut gold "oro corriente" piece with crowned-CA tax stamp for Charles I of Spain, 42.08 grams, ex-1500s wreck. 1" x 3/8" x 3/8". Rectangular-shaped cut piece, very important for showing the entire tax stamp consisting of a crowned CA above a two-branch pomegranate that almost certainly refers to Charles I and manufacture in Colombia (New Granada), the two perpendicular cuts very neat (not broken, hence more like a tejuelo, which would typically show fineness), with much smaller cut in one corner as well, possibly to regulate the piece down to exactly 12 escudos (one and a half onzas, a coin-like size in any case), with traces of dark encrustation around details. From an unidentified 1500s wreck off the northern coast of South America, with photo-certificate, pedigreed to our Auction #22, with original lot-tag #211, and to our Auction #14 (lot #297).
