Silver bar, 1913 grams, 98.6% fine, with stamps of the Middelburg chamber of the VOC (Dutch East India Co.) and assayer Engelsen, from the Bredenhof (1753), ex-Christie's. 6-1/4" x 1-1/2" x 1-1/4". Typically neatly cast in a perfectly rectangular mold, with two deep stamps: a small, incuse shield containing a lily and the initials F.E. for assayer Francois Engelsen Jr., and a VOC monogram with Z above and M below. At one end is a typical depression with several bias-cuts for adjustment and assaying. Overall decent condition despite a few large pits and light corrosion on the markings, nicely toned all over. From the Bredenhof (1753), with generic certificate from the salvagers, and with original bag from the Christie's (Amsterdam) auction of December 1986.
