Large silver bar #563 from Oruro, 93 lb 3.36 oz troy, Class Factor 0.7, with markings of manifest CCCLXXX (380) and fineness IIUCCCLXXX (2380/2400) followed by cartouche of assayer, one owner/shipper mark and two tax stamps, from the Atocha (1622). 16-1/4" x 5" x 3-1/4". Particularly long and heavy specimen with pitted surface from corrosion but with still-bold markings of manifest and fineness and owner/shipper (Delgado and Arias) as well as silversmith V and diagonal slash at other end, with "RA" cartouche before and illegible assayer cartouche after the fineness, plus two smaller-than-usual tax stamps visible but corroded, also an unusual example in that the assayer's "bite" consists of a light shaving of the top of one end above a cylindrical scrape down that side. From the Atocha (1622), with Fisher photo-certificate.
