Large silver bar #474 from Potosi, 83 lb 2.3 oz troy, Class Factor 1.0, with markings of mine/date Po1621, manifest IIIIUDCI (4601), 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". A premium bar with full and bold markings for manifest number and fineness but also clear date and thee large, circular tax stamps in addition to a full but slightly corroded cartouche for assayer Mexia after the fineness, yet the most interesting aspect is the fact that two sets of owner/shipper marks at either end were effaced and replaced with a bold new monogram at one end, also with double-scoop "bite" in center as usual for the Potosi mine. From the Atocha (1622), with Fisher photo-certificate #85A-S474.
