Gold disk, 216.4 grams, marked XIX-dot (19-1/4K), ex-1715 Fleet (Fisher certified). Approx. 2-1/2" in diameter A very rare solid small ingot, with bold fineness but no other markings, the top side very smooth but the bottom cratered from countless bubbles, one of which (in the center) was so big as to create a crackled hump on the smooth side, prompting it to be certified by the Mel Fisher company (amusingly) as a "sombrero disk." Outstanding color (nice rich gold), compact in size but notably exactly the weight of eight 8-escudos coins. A unique opportunity to buy a certified disk-ingot from the 1715 Fleet, as not many bars and disks from the Fleet have been recovered. From the 1715 Fleet, with original Fisher photo-certificate #MF65-007. Recovered from: Spanish 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida
