Silver "wedge" ingot with heavy encrustation, 1905 grams. Approx. 6" x 4" x 4". Very impressive display consisting of a shelly and wormy concretion (with small, stable fissure) on the side of a clean, gray, unmarked wedge that feels lighter than it looks because of its composition of silver amalgam, which is much less dense than solid silver, its wedge shape possibly due to a mold used at that stage of the refining process and not necessarily for arraying in an 8-piece circle of contraband in the false bottom of a barrel as popularly believed. From the 1715 Fleet.
