    Kellogg & Humbert Gold Ingot Faceplate
    Accompanied by Certificate of Authenticity

    Kellogg & Humbert Gold Faceplate. CABG-445. The original weight of the ingot when it was pulled from the ocean floor was 150.32 ounces. Many ingots were cut laterally, leaving only the faceplate. The bulk of the gold was then used to strike commemorative gold coins that resembled Territorial gold pieces. This faceplate is nicely laid out with No 504 at the top, followed by the Kellogg & Humbert company logo / 150.32 Oz / 892 FINE / $2771.79. The surfaces are bright, yellow-gold with no evidence of rust encrustation from the hull of the ship, as sometimes seen. Accompanied by a COA by PSA / DNA that guarantees authenticity. They include measurements on the certificate: 65 x 149 x 3 mm. The faceplate weighs 528.10 grams.
