1951 1041toz New York Assay Office One of a Kind Silver Ingot
1951 1041toz New York Assay. The patina on this 72LB chunk of government issued silver is truly a work of art. With a one of a kind double ringed hallmark, this ingot is in a league of its own.
Incredible to have a hunk of true government issued 999 silver that predates Nixon dropping the Gold Standard by over 20 years! We have seen a wide array of smaller gov issued ingots but this is a first of this odd size we have ever come across. When seeing 5oz Silver Assay bars going for 30-40x multiples (3000+ per Oz) it really shows the value of this unique ingot.
