Wedge-cut of a small gold disk, 7.84 grams, from the Espadarte (1558). Roughly 5/8" x 5/8" x 1/4". Triangular "pie cut" of a small, thin disk of refined gold, with traces of sediment and coral on surface, undoubtedly intended as a coin-like unit akin to the "oro corriente" of Spanish colonial realms. From the Espadarte (1558), with Arqueonautas certificate #IDM-006-02-953, and pedigreed to our Auction #5, with original lot-tag #106.
