    Picked up this nice Australian Gold & Silver Exchange 1oz from 2014.

    Nice eye appeal, although camera work needs improvement.

    It's pretty hard to find a Golden West bar that's centred properly.
    This one is about as good as it gets!
    At least, it's a nice strong strike!

    Must have been Friday arvo when that one was strucked!
    Over the years, I have had collected and sold about 4 - 5 of these bars!
    Every one of the examples I bought had some faults.
    Strikes that was either too light or stamps that were off centre!
    Who ever is responsible for stamping these bars has a "she'll be right " attitude towards work !:rolleyes:

    Yes, distinctly different typeface on the right bar on both sides. Back has smaller OZ, skinnier 1 but larger text font.

    Even this Canada bar has a different "more rounder, fatter" font to the right bar as well, you can really see it in the "O" of Golden and "S" in West.

    I really dislike dimples in bars. It looks like someone had pressed a drill bit onto the surface to steal a bit of gold before they resold the bar.
    There were quite a few Engelhards that I bought in the past that had this issue; couldn't get rid of them fast enough.
