ATOCHA 1622 SILVER BAR 82+LBS. INGOT MEL FISHER TREASURE SALVORS COA PIRATE WOW!!! This 82lb 2.88oz ATOCHA SILVER BAR INGOT is 34.8 x 13.2 x 7.4cm, HUGE BAR! Class Factor .90; Carat 2380, TSI #85A-S4 (1985 Atocha, Serial #4); listed on Manifest 90 (Register / Page PB427). Manifest comments: A.DE SALDEN / SELF (meaning shipped to himself). Remember in 1985 when Mel Fisher located the Mother Load of the Nuestra Señora De Atocha, it was the Silver BARS that confimed the Ship by comparing the Serial #’s to the Manifest in the ARCHIVES of the INDIES in Seville SPAIN! This particular piece has high Purity (2380 or 2400 kt.) as marked right on the bar (IICCCLXXX) and high Class factor .90. The markings are very nice and clear as is the Assayer’s scoop. What’s really nice about this BAR are the 3 Tax Stamps (Royal Stamps), showing the King’s 20% had been paid. The Manifest notation for this BAR (bottom right) shows this BAR was Shipped by: A. de Saldana for M. Santos as evidenced by the Shippers/ Owner Siglas (there were 28 Bars with this Sigla). This is a beautiful BAR and we are honored to Offer this beautiful piece of History on the Open Market!
