    Top three are each 100g.

    The lower four:-"C" stamp =83g. "A" stamp=77g. "D" stamp = 92g. No stamp =79g.

    I know there is a "B" stamp somewhere out there - just waiting to join this collection!

    So many photos were lost due to periodic issues with the site, it's a shame really.

    true...I think the admins underestimated the value
    of the forum's content
    SS was the only source for a number of vintage/rare gold and silver ingots.
    Many were/are not covered by Allengelhard and others

    I haven't found much info out there. Someone posted here on SS a newspaper advert clipping showing the same style ABC gold ingots, from memory it was 1980's (I think).

    https://cdn0.rubylane.com/_pod/item...ian-Bullion-Company-ABC-99-full-3-2048-45.jpg

    "This is to certify that this 1/2 oz silver ingot which bears the stamp of the Australian Bullion Company Pty. Ltd., was melted and recast from 99.98% silver produced by Broken Hill Associated Smelters Pty. Limited."

    I would quite like to collect though industrial sized BHAS silvers bars to!

    alor: haha you jest :)

    I wouldn't doubt other numbered or lettered versions of the under 100g do exist.

    I don't think I've seen an E or F but I have also never seen the 350 gms and 110 gram posted above by Bigfella.

    So many of these things were melted down. Hard to find but not impossible.

    Hi there, the IMG file format only shows up as being a broken format on my computer (and a friend's) and thus no images.....am I alone here or is there special software I need to receive them ? Thanks Paulha
