Tin ingot, neatly formed, encrusted as found. 3323 grams, approx. 5-1/2" x 5" x 3". Flat-topped pyramid in shape, in a cocoon of puffy white coral encrustation, quite a conversation piece but also significant as one of very few tin ingots recovered in our time (as prior salvagers generally melted them). From an unidentified ca.-1370 wreck in the Red Sea.
