Long, coral-encrusted gold bar #43, 17¼K, one end cut, from the "Golden Fleece wreck" (ca. 1550). 1050 grams, about 8½" x ½" x 11/16". A straight, near-complete bar (just a small piece of one end cut in its time, the other end rounded) with white coral covering on about 40% of the surface (something you never see from other wrecks), the three fineness markings (each with XVII in one box and dot in another) all visible but two mostly covered with the coral, spots of red toning here and there. From the "Golden Fleece wreck" (ca. 1550), with certificate.
