Hump Day Hundreds #5 - Engelhard Poured This Time... For Real!

in steemsilvergold •  3 months ago

Some of you saw my previous post about a 100ozt Engelhard bar that I bought expecting a poured bar but received a pressed/struck bar.

Spot price was still in a reasonable place and I had a few bucks to store away... as physical wealth. So I bought another 100ozt Engelhard bar, this time from a dealer that actually sent what he advertised.


Here's a pic without the hand.
Check out the low serial number

Let's work in a few more angles:IMG_2566.jpg


Get a good look at the edge?

And... IMO the most boring vew, hehe... the back:

By the way, congratulations @summertooth for guessing the Aztec calendar poured silver piece the closest without going over. I'll send ya some STEEM bro!

Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner!

Saw this piece on my feed and had to take a double look at that serial number. At first I could see the C. That is a great example and is worth sending photos into to get it registered on the site. I haven't checked to see if they have a C prefix variety. I am sure if they do it's not that low of a serial number. Congrats on the buy. Nothing like poured Engelhard!!! @sbsparts

Just saw this, thanks @sbsparts! I stuck with the lucky 7's and it paid off.
That is one amazing bar, by the way.

That's a gorgeous Engelhard bar. That's the kind that I'd love to get. One of these days. Yeah, one of the first things I noticed about it was that it had C0000000000000000000739. Ha ha. That's pretty darn low. Maybe @silveringots can help you find one in sequence with it. :)

Also, congrats, @summertooth!

Massive, simple design and a low serial. What else could someone want?

dang that is a LOW number congrats

Big bar. Several years ago I planned to make a 23kilo (the weight was important) cast silver sculpture so I started collecting silver. I was living in Tokyo at the time and you could just walk into a store and buy kilo bars of silver and gold. I got several kilos from a store called Ishifuku. It's sealed in bubble wrap. However in my collecting I got enamoured by various Japanese and Chinese coinage and started spending money on that. The rabbit hole got worse and worse after that. haven't done the sculpture yet as I have run out of cash. Fortunately there is a Bell-maker less than a kilometer away. I plan to get them to do the casting. Not many of them around


So you're going to have a bell made out of your kilo bars? Is that right? How many kilos did you end up collecting. I don't have many Kilos... Thanks for the interesting comment.


No it will be a sculpture not a bell. It's is just that this is one of the few foundries around. I have about 13 or 14 kilos. As I said I got caught up in old coins and bars. Ended up moving onto stuff throughout the world til I went bust and the money stopped :P.

Awesome low serial number poured 100 oz Engelhard! A treasure for sure! Congrats, @sbsparts! That is one great find!

Beautiful Engelhard bar!

Tampilannya bagus ..

Thank you for your continued support of SteemSilverGold

What kind of metal is this.


What kind of metal is the silver bar that has "999+ Fine Silver" stamped on it? We're going to have to do some research on that one.


What can I say, it's a gift! ;)


Thanks bro for info


I'm glad we could clear things up!
