A corner cut of a 1/4"-thick rectangular ingot with full, circular stamp showing a small crown above the letters CA (somewhat obscured by a natural surface flaw) inside a border, the two cuts very sharp and angular (not broken), hints of sediment in crevices here and there, an important piece as clearly cut to the (approximate) size of an 8E at a time when gold coins were not yet struck in the colonies.
