Large silver bar #285 from Potosi, 81 lb 6.56 oz troy, Class Factor 1.0, with markings of mine/date Po1622, manifest LIII (53), and fineness IIUCCCLXXX (2380/2400) followed by cartouche of assayer Mexia, shipper/owner's marks and tax stamps, from the Atocha (1622). 14" x 5" x 3". Another premium bar, and the perfect companion for the previous lot because the date is 1622 instead of 1621 (equally clear on this piece), also a curiously low manifest number, with a large, upside-down shipper/owner mark B in between it and the fineness followed by weak but certain assayer-Mexia cartouche, three large, circular tax stamps, plus various small marks in corners and near edges including V (for silvermaster de Vreder), "8", "E" and two slashes, also with usual double-scoop "bite" near center. The bottom is slightly lopsided. From the Atocha (1622), with Fisher photo-certificate #85A-S285.
