Thick silver contraband disk, 96.25% fineness (estimated), from the 1733 Fleet. 1037 grams, 4" in diameter and ¾" thick. An evenly-formed dome of silver with significant bubble-holes on the bottom, completely unmarked (hence contraband), its fineness estimated from an assay done on another ingot found at the same time in the same place, nice dark silver color with some minor scuffing on the flat side exposing bright silver under the surface. From the Capitana El Rubí of the 1733 Fleet, pedigreed to our Treasure Auction #1 (lot #53).
