The ingot would have had a diameter of 110mm and the quarter ingot has a weight of 1,140.2g, indicating an approximate weight of 4,560g for the whole ingot. This would imply a comparatively large ingot. The surface of the metal is corroded and has a pale green patina with areas of red-brown surface.
