Authentic 1061.1 Troy Oz Silver Shipwreck Treasure Ingot from the SS Gairsoppa
Authentic 1061.1 Troy Oz Silver Shipwreck Treasure Ingot from the SS Gairsoppa. In 1941 during WW2 one of the German “Wolfpack” U Boat submarines spotted the SS Gairsoppa after it had left the fleet to refuel. Mercilessly, the U-Boat shot 3 torpedos at the SS Gairsoppa, missing with the first 2 and finally striking with the final 3rd torpedo. The SS Gairsoppa sank within 20 minutes killing 85/86 crew members. Only 1 survived to tell the gruesome story. This unique example is one of only 462 recovered ingots featuring his Majesty’s Bombay Mintmark. These 462 ingots sat 3 miles down on the ocean floor for over 70 years, until the Odyssey deep exploration submarine was developed and recovered the deepest treasure known to date. When talking about historical significance, intrinsic value and overall eye appeal... this ingot truly has it all
