Solid Silver Bar / Ingot SUNKEN TREASURE 1739 Museum Quality XXRARE ARTIFACT. Silver Ingot from The Rooswijk 98.5 fine silver with clear stamps of the Amsterdam Chamber of VOC Dutch East India Co. And assayer mark (a goat). Can meet in Somerset, Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire , Gloustershire or Cornwall. Basically ANYWHERE “SAFE” IN THE SOUTH WEST OF ENGLAND. Not too long ago antiques were worth more in original cleaned and restored condition, but now in 2021 the antique industry has changed in that people pay more for things in unrestored condition. My bars have coral style brown bits from been at the bottom of the sea for hundreds of years. Most bars were INSIDE these chests so came out black and once cleaned were shiny silver clean, however as the chests were not water tight some bars had the same brown crust that can be seen on my bars. Most of these bars were cleaned when they were salvaged. All of the bars are worth about 2 or 3 times scrap price but ones like this in Original condition from been at the bottom of the sea for hundreds of years are Extremely rare artifacts. The Rooswijk was sunk in 1739 off Southeast England, just North of the Straits of Dover. There, the sea hides a most unusual feature known as the Goodwin Sands, where sandbanks appear and disapper unpredictably with the tides. Many ships over the centuries have sunk here and silted over, and occasionally one of the wrecks will surface and be discovered. Such is the case with the Rooswijk, a Dutch East Indian Co. Vessel that foundered on the Goodwin Sands in a storm on December 19, 1739, with all hands and its chests of treasure, virtually gone without a trace. CASH ON COLLECTION ONLY. I CAN MEET YOU ANYWHERE IN THE SOUTH WEST OF ENGLAND. WE WILL MEET SOMEWHERE VERY SAFE LIKE OUTSIDE A POLICE STATION IF YOU LIKE.
