History:  Over 900 silver bars are listed in the Atocha’s manifest.  Many of the silver bars were processed at Potosi or Oruro in Peru.   To form the ingots more than 80 pounds of silver were poured into molds.  The assayer would then remove a small portion of the silver from the bar (this was referred to as a "bite") to test the purity of the silver.  The bars usually tested at 99% pure silver.
