148. Small, triangular cut from thin disk #AM, one tax stamp, fineness IIUCCCL (2350/2400). 279 grams, roughly 3¼” x 3" x ¼”. A neater cut than the above and with only one tax stamp (full) partially overstamped by the fineness in three parts, minimal corrosion, two cuts and one break, evenly thin. Estimate: $600 - $900

Unidentified ca.-1554 wreck in the northern Caribbean 149. Coin-like cut from a “splash” ingot (“plata corriente”). 43 grams, roughly 1" x 1½” x ¼”. Very irregular broken-off piece, no markings but no corrosion, very coin-like in size and weight. Estimate: $350 - $525 1 5 0 . Coinlike cut from a “splash” ingot (“plata corriente”). 42 grams, roughly 1½” square and ¼” thick. L-shaped edge piece, broken off around a bubble (hence the shape), also with a bubble inside the edge, coin-like in size and weight, no corrosion. Estimate: $350 - $525

153. Lot of two medium, coin-like cuts from “splash” ingots (“plata corriente”). 25 grams and 18 grams. Like the last lot except that neither piece is quite the right weight for an 8 reales, very irregular in thickness (almost look like shiny meteorites), not much corrosion. Estimate: $250 $375

151. Lot of six small, coin-like cuts from “splash” ingots (“plata corriente”). 7 to 18 grams each. Small and very coin-like brokenoff pieces that must have been used as 2- and 4-reales coins (why else would anyone make such small pieces?), one thick but the others thin, lightly corroded. Estimate: $250 - $375 152. Lot of two medium, coin-like cuts from “splash” ingots (“plata corriente”). 28 grams and 27 grams. These two pieces are sure to be a hit because each one is almost precisely the weight of an 8 reales, which is no doubt what they were broken off to make, one clearly the outer edge of a thin, round “splash” but the other one very irregular in thickness and edge, minimal corrosion. Estimate: $250 - $375
