These gold finger ingots were with gold jewellery items found on the "Salcombe Cannon Site" . Most of the jewellery items had been cut in half but no matching pieces were found indicating that these were trade items used to smelt down into other jewellery. You can clearly see the shape of the finger that had been used to make an impression in the sand prior to pouring it in.
