#piratesunday: A Common but UNIQUE Silver Bar

in #steemsilvergold2 years ago (edited)

I have a standing arrangement with #piratesunday @stokjockey to be actively looking for silver MTB Liberty Bars and Rounds, and to acquire the silver on my behalf should he find one.

This is my most recent purchase received from @stokjockey,

and I am stoked!

1982 MTB Liberty Silver Bar

by Johnson Matthey 1 troy ounce, .999 fine silver

A beautiful and prestine specimem silver bar in its original mint-sealed package.


I may have mentioned in past articles that the MTB (Manfra, Tordella & Brookes) commisioned the Liberty silver and gold bars and rounds to and were produced by three mints: Johnson Matthey, Engelhard, and the Casa de Moneda of Mexico

Look closely at the serial number of this silver bar. It is 88101.

What do you know... my lucky numbers!!!


But more importantly, the serial number was double stamped, which makes it an error bar.


[Although]Double stamps were quite common in this era but are still unique. I will send to the review team but we're pretty limited on content space and I will need to let them determine if we have room to note this. We have seen examples in almost every variety of Johnson Matthey and Engelhard, and typically we make note if the bar is a rare Tier 1 or Tier 2.

Source: Letter from All Engelhard [email protected] in request to note bar #88101 in the catalogue under my name.

The error bar joins my three other MTB Silver Bar.

I now have four!

The 2 bars on the right by Johnson Matthey; the left bar by Engelhard.

Can you point out in my vintage collection of Statue of Liberty silver rounds the MTB Liberty Rounds?

Glad you explained what MTB was. Lol I thought mints didn't like to let ANY errors through? So when you say double stamping was common then, I'm a bit taken back.

Nice bars and @stokjockey is a legend as far as I'm concerned.

Exactly... they want their rounds and bars to be perfect most especially the MTBs. The special design of MTB Statue of Liberty silver and gold medals and bars were minted for the centennial celebration, so the rounds in both gold and silver were considered commemoratives along with the gold and silver bars. Then many other foundries, refiners and mints used the design for their generic rounds, just as the designs of US coins are depicted in generic rounds and bars. Have a lovely Sunday, @welshstacker. Take care.🤗💕💋!!!! !tip

Can never go wrong with any JM silver. But an error is even better bestie. Nice pieces🌹❤️

It is my first error bar, bestie. By now you know that I am not really into error silver or special silver. I am just a regular girl stacking what is affordable. I do want to collect designs and special coins like my all-time favorite graded Peace Dollars, but I go for small-ticket items, knowing that my objective for stacking is to preserve value, and may in time sell my stack.
Have a great day today, bestie @silverd510 🌺🤙 and take care. Tons of 🤗💕💋!!!!

That Silver Bar made me so Excited when I came across it. Sometimes when I find Treasurers like this it is Hard to Keep a Poker Face. I am So Glad Ms. Saver that it is now in Strong Hands and that it won't be resold. I am So Glad I was able to help facilitate your FIRST Error Silver Bar. I Thank you for Your Support of #PirateSunday and am VERY Grateful to have you as my Special Friend.......... @silversaver888

I have you to thank, @stokjockey! I still cannot believe that you did not keep it for yourself, and so I appreciate your demonstration of detachment from material things for a friend, as I do very often to shower my friends with gifts. I appreciate it very much and value the gesture of friendship and giving. Have a beautiful day, take care and tons of 🤗💕💋!!!! !tip

Nice eye on the double stamp 1. Great to see the AE reference. ✌

Surprising errors are common 🤔 !BEER

Thanks for the beer.
!coffeea

Yes sometimes, errors are by the hundreds sometimes a thousand which makes them "common". Most recently is Perth Mint Emu coin... there was a die error (I think it is) making the Emu appear like having three legs. It was not caught at the mint, rather by one of the stackers. Sometimes it is just an aberration, and only a few coins will have the error, or that simply only a few people have come out with the error... in this case that would be a "rare" error. Thanks for stopping by @davedickeyyall. I appreciate it very much. Like you, I post everyday. I hope that you will find my blog interesting and come often, if not everyday. I post about precious on three days, Tuesday, Saturday and Sundays; about my love of Mene 24K gold and platinum of Mondays; I participate on Wednesday Walks by @tattoodjay, and I share my love for food on Thursdays. I hope to hear from you again, my friend, as I try my best to visit you on your blog. Have a wonderful day, and take care.🌺🤙



Hey @silversaver888, here is a little bit of BEER for you. Enjoy it!

Cool. I didn't know what MTB was. You have a nice lady liberty collection going there saver!

Hehehe... now you know, @fat-elvis! MTB (Manfra, Tordella & Brookes) is one of the world's leading distributors of bullion coins and bars, and numismatic coins. It also operates a COMEX/NYMEX depository.
Have a wonderful day, my friend and Take care.🤗💕💋!!!! !tip
