Shipwreck and Non-Shipwreck Silver and Gold Ingots

 

Bullion ingots from shipwrecks do not exist in great quantities—typically any given shipwreck will yield ALL known specimens of that particular style of ingot, and with the exception of the hundreds of monstrous (80-lb.) loaf-shaped bricks of silver from the Atocha, I have never heard of more than about 200 similar ingots found at once. Compare that to coin rarities, and you will quickly realize that ingots are much rarer than contemporaneous coins, and of course they are almost always more impressive.

Description Item # Price
 Small, cut piece of a silver "splash" ingot, 60 grams, with octagonal tax stamp for Mexico or Santo Domingo, ex-"Power Plant wreck" (late 1500s). Approx. 2-1/2" x 2" x 1/8". A rounded edge-section, partially broken and partially cut from a flat "splash," with most of the tax stamp (somewhat obscured by natural flow-lines from the ingot) near the break, small rectangular hole (natural) near edge, nicely toned all over. From the "Power Plant wreck" (late 1500s).

Encrusted clump of two small silver "splash" ingots (no markings), 312 grams total, ex-Concepcion (1641).) 4" x 2-1/2" x 1/2". A neat display with lots of white and green coral over gray surfaces, the ingots themselves crude (flat) and nondescript as almost certainly contraband. From the Concepcion (1641).
