"Tumbaga" silver bar #M-56, 3 lb 8 oz av, marked with fineness IV IIII XX (1420/2400) and tax stamp. 9" x 2-5/8" x 5/8". Smaller, longer rectangular bar (more like the contraband ingots of the 1600s) with markings on the rounded and grainy bottom, including a faint but fuller-than-normal tax stamp, the top of the bar with curious flow lines, toned and only minimally corroded, with prominent bias-cut assayer's "bite" in one corner. From the "Tumbaga" wreck (ca. 1528).
