Tuscan Hoard 1778, one bar identified!

Thanks to Andrew McCabe’s photo stream I can say that one of the bars owned by James Byres certainly made it to the British Museum! (so where are the other three bars?! also hiding somewhere in the BM?!)  I now just have to figure its accession number as it does not return in CRRO under RRC 12/1 or under BM collection search for aes signatum.

See earlier posts (no. 1 and no. 2) for details of image sources and further background.
