Neatly formed silver bar, marked with A (Amsterdam) and VOC (Dutch East India Co.) and billy goat (assayer/foundry mark), from the Rooswijk (1739). 1967 grams (63.25 troy oz), 6" x 1-5/8" x 1¼". A typically well-made ingot, perfectly rectangular for a tight fit in the shipping chest (which is why they are so well preserved), also well marked with very deep and bold markings, also one end with typical depression and sliced down to the appropriate weight, some toning but virtually no corrosion. From the Rooswijk (1739), with original archeologists' tag #RK04A0375.
