Small, cut gold piece #1032, 6.07 grams, fineness unknown, ex-Espadarte (1558). About 1/2" x 3/8" x 1/8". Cute little pie-wedge cut from a small disk, no markings or encrustation but with original Arqueonautas number inked on sticker. Small pieces like this illuminate the necessity to make "small change" from poured ingots, in Spanish areas called "oro corriente" and somewhat accepted as coinage. From the Espadarte (1558), with Arqueonautas tag and certificate #IDM-006-02-1032, and pedigreed to our Auction #3, with original lot-tag #71.
