Description: As poured, rough surfaces. Face and other marks as illustrated. The layered look of this massive silver ingot suggests to the writer that four large ingot frames were stacked, one upon another, and then the pour occurred. The writer confesses to an entire lack of knowledge where a silver bar of this size matters, and this layman’s eye is easily confused. The weight of this bar, 931.30, is inked on the face though time has faded the numbering some. This specimen from the Mint at San Francisco, weighing in at more than 77 Troy pounds, would easily be the focal point of just about any ingot collection we can imagine.
