Rare Blake & Co. Small Sized Gold IngotBlake & Co. Gold Ingot. Produced by the successful and highly respected Blake & Co., this company apparently catered to individual miners who brought their personal discoveries to the assayers to be turned into small "presentation bars." These bars were finely finished with beveled edges on the bottom. This small-sized bar is heavily encrusted on all but one side (the back side) with deep rust colored oxidation from the iron on the ship that corroded and stained the bar. One side reads: 12.09 Oz. The top side has heavy encrustation that covers some of the imprint on that side. However, what can be made out reads: NO 5228 / 867 (FINE?) / $216.68. The other side has the company's imprint: BLAKE & Co. A rarely seen ingot from the S.S. Central America.(#10229) (PCGS# 10229)
