    I buy my bars direct from the Perth Mint and some of my 10oz have the frosted finish.

    They look like they have been sanded or something, do they weigh much different?

    I have recently received a 10 oz bar direct from the Perth Mint with exactly that same brushed finish.

    As the OP said, it looks like they have been hit with steel wool for a good scrubbing down.

    I have PAMP kilo bars that are shiny and a few that are frosty, otherwise weight and dimensions are the same...all bought from major online dealers here and came with certificates.

    I have not seen a 10oz PM bar with a finish like yours before.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I dont expect too much (in the finish department) when it comes to PM 10 oz bars (theyre just blobs after all ;))... that way I dont get disappointed.

    Sadly though, they seem to have the same approach to their premium priced (but bullion as they repeatedly point out) Lunar coins - and its bad luck trying to get any recourse if you didnt buy them directly from the Perth Mint.
