Gold "finger' bar #11 from the "Golden Fleece wreck" (ca. 1550), 204 grams, 20-1/2K, in special presentation wooden box. About 5" x 3/4" x 1/4". Approximately 3/5 of a long, flat ingot (much smaller than usual) with one rounded end and other neatly chiseled all the way through, with one patch of gray coral at the cut end on the smooth top and three fineness markings on the bottom, each with 2 straight x's in a box and 2 dots in their own box, spaced so that the bar could be further cut to make smaller change. What's nice about this ingot, apart from its very compact and therefore more affordable size, is the wonderful cherry-wood presentation box with locking lid and special color certificate that one of the former owners put with it, the bar housed in a special, velvet-lined well sized to match inside the box, hand's down the most impressive display we have seen. From the "Golden Fleece wreck" (ca. 1550).
