I believe the best known Transatlantic Cable souvenir was a several inch long piece of the cable with Tiffany sterling end caps and a center band/plate with a commemorative inscription. This was accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Cyrus W. Field.

Due to technical problems, I have been unable to comment on this post until now, for which I apologize. In their book, Carpenter and Carpenter go into some detail about these pieces of souvenir transatlantic cable (p. 14). A Tiffany & Co. ad about them (reproduced on p. 14) says that each piece will be accompanied by a "copyrighted facsimile certificate of Cyrus W. Field, Esq...," but I have not seen a copy of the certificate until now. Thanks, Scott.
