Silver "splash" ingot, 528 grams, marked with fineness IIU CCC L X (2360/2400, 98.3% fine) and circular crowned-C tax stamp (Charles I), ex-"Golden Fleece wreck" (ca. 1550). 5" diameter, 1/4" thick. About the size and thickness of a pancake but with about seven little "drip blobs" on top surface, across the middle of which appears clear markings of fineness in five small boxes bookended with two clear and nearly full crowned-C tax stamps, the bottom with areas of peripheral coral encrustation and minor corrosion, bright silver in color overall, desirable as among the better-marked ingots from this early wreck. From the "Golden Fleece wreck" (ca. 1550).
