Gold "finger" bar from the Maravillas (1656), 336.3 grams, 19-1/4K. About 7" x 1" x 1/4". A very wide and flat ingot with one end chisel-cut twice (a bit crudely) and the other end rounded but with two small, cylindrical assayer's bites, the marked surface with 3 fineness markings of XIX in a box with single dot outside, 3 clear tax seals (plus part of another) with dotted borders and letters HISPA and DG visible, but best of all is the bold and nearly full foundry mark RIBERA / ZARAGOZA, which clearly refers to the Zaragoza mine and city in Colombia but also possibly to an assayer named Ribera (unless the RIBERA simply refers to the fact that the Zaragoza in Colombia, as opposed to the Zaragoza in Spain, is situated on the banks of a river), a significant artifact from a wreck that is not necessarily known for yielding many gold bars. From the Maravillas (1656), with color photo-certificate.
