Lot of over a dozen small, natural gold flakes and nuggets from the Santa Margarita (1622). 3.3 grams, the case 3¼" square. Mostly smooth and rounded but flat, these tiny, high-purity gold pieces were probably used as currency in the absence of small gold coins in any usable quantity, and as genuine, certified artifacts from a Fisher find they should command a good premium over their intrinsic value. From the Santa Margarita (1622), with Fisher tag and photo-certificate #00M-57341 and housed in a special plastic clamshell box.
