Gold disk with cut edge, 1438 grams, fineness XIX••• (19.75K), foundry / assayer STN / DTS (?), from the Atocha (1622), ex-Christie's (1988). 4" in diameter and 1/2" thick. Impressive disk with lots of markings (four fineness, two foundry / assayer and four circular tax-stamps) on flat top, tangential piece removed from edge in its time by shallow chiseling and deep breaking (with encrustation in crevices of break), much copper color on surfaces, great pedigree. From the Atocha (1622), pedigreed to the original Christie's (New York) auction of June 1988, lot #81.
