Large, mounded copper ingot from the Atocha (1622). 32 lb av, roughly 11" x 9" x 4". A very dense, thick "pig" of copper, with curiously ear-shaped blob on top (partially unmelted artifact?), one of many found on the Atocha and distributed to investors far and wide who tend to use them as doorstops and subsequently lose the all-important Fisher certificate (present with this example). From the Atocha (1622), with Fisher photo-certificate #85A-131-1.
