    Yes, my correction: it's already 1,700+ USD per spot, that puts it at 17,000 $ per 10 oz.

    Perhaps the bar was a little bit overweight after it was poured (I reckon before the minting process), so someone decided to shave a bit of it off.

    I think all mints have detectors to hinder employees from leaving with gold powder in their pockets.

    Perhaps the previous owner of the bar (or someone at the factory) used it to reach some hard to reach spot to scratch on their back :D
