Gold "finger" bar #30 from the Atocha (1622), 885 grams, 20-3/4K. About 9" x 1" x 1/2". Long and nearly full bar with one end neatly sliced twice, at different angles, the other end rounded but with cylindrical "assayer's bite" now filled with white coral, the bar itself slightly curved, with 4 clear fineness markings, each with 2 X's in a box and 3 dots in a separate box, plus at least 7 partial circular tax seals with dotted border and some letters visible, plus (and most importantly) full and mostly readable foundry mark "SARGOSA / PECARTA," at least the top half of which refers to the mine (and city) of Zaragoza in Colombia (the PECARTA part probably an assayer name), all with bits of encrustation, the other side smooth, certainly one of the better-marked and more significant gold bars from the Atocha. From the Atocha (1622), with original Fisher photo-certificate #GB030.
