Neatly formed silver ingot, 1956 grams, about 98.5% fine, with stamps of the Amsterdam chamber of the VOC (Dutch East India Co.) and "jumping goat" assayer-mark of Otto and/or Wouter Buck, ex-Rooswijk (1739). 6" x 1-1/2" x 1-1/4". Very neatly cast in a precisely rectangular mold but with one end of the ingot left unfinished for fine tuning the weight, that end with depression in middle (filled with encrustation) and small pieces nipped from the corners (as is typical), the VOC monogram (deeply impressed) and goat marking (inside incuse shield) very clear but without toning. From the Rooswijk (1739), with original certificate from the salvager. Recovered from: Rooswijk, sunk in 1739 southeast of England
