Iron barshot, professionally conserved. 5 lb 11 oz, 13-1/2" long. Early form of barshot with the puck-like ends somewhat octagonal and with the square-shank connector bar protruding out each end, very solid and well-preserved, the only one of its kind we know of from this important wreck, matte-black coating all over. From the "Tumbaga wreck," sunk ca. 1528 off Grand Bahama Island, with photo-certificate signed by Herbert Humphreys, Jr.
