Large "tumbaga" silver bar #M-101, 12.6 lb av, marked with fineness IVLXXX (1530/2400), owner B~Vo, and partial tax stamp, partially plated in Armstrong's book. 13-1/2" x 5-3/4" x 3/4. A flat, wide, rectangular ingot with relatively smooth, even surface on marked bottom (just a tiny bit of corrosion), the other side with thousands of tiny popped bubbles from the casting process, lightly toned all over, prominent assayer's "bite" in one corner, a well-marked bar of impressive size from the earliest known New World bullion to survive. From the "Tumbaga" wreck (ca. 1528), with original Sedwick photo-certificate from 2002.
