Silver "splash" ingot #20, 1309 grams, with 2 tax stamps. 5-1/2" to 6" in diameter, up to 1/2" thick. From a metallurgical standpoint it is curious to compare this typical "splash" ingot in refined silver to the previous "tumbaga" ingots, as this "splash" is typically thinner, brighter, and more corroded, with a couple prominent "mountains" on the top where the poured silver dripped onto the surface, this specimen with faint but discernible crowned-C tax stamps and patch of coral on edge. From the "Golden Fleece wreck" (ca. 1550), with original Sedwick certificate from 2006.
