Twisted-gold link from a money chain, ex-Atocha (1622). 1.51 grams. Open-ended intact spiral-twist link, part of a broken larger chain which was popular in its time for use as tax-free money, since jewelry was exempt from the heavy tax that applied to coins and ingots. From the Atocha (1622), with original plastic tag and Fisher photo-certificate #1525.
