Small gold disk, 216.4 grams, marked XIX• (19-1/4K). Approx. 2-1/2" in diameter A very cute little ingot, with bold fineness but no other markings, the top side smooth but the bottom cratered from countless bubbles, one of which (in the center) was so big as to create a hump on the smooth side, prompting the Fishers to certify this as a "sombrero disk"! Lovely, rich gold color, compact in size but almost exactly the weight of eight 8 escudos (so think about how much those would be worth!). From the 1715 Fleet, with Fisher photo-certificate #MF65-007.
