    Looks like Dow Banking is long gone: (looks like they became part of Bank of America)


    Dow Banking Loss Provision
    Reuters
    Published: November 30, 1982


    ZURICH, Nov. 29 The Dow Banking Corporation, which is 75 percent owned by the Dow Chemical Company of Midland, Mich., has not ruled out a cut in its dividend this year to finance provisions for doubtful loans, a bank official said.

    But directors have not begun to discuss the dividend, and last year's rate could be maintained, he said.

    Dow Banking has outstanding loans of about $10 million to the International Harvester Company, the spokesman said, but they are fully covered by present reserves. Exposure in Mexico and in South America is substantial, he added.

    Don't see a lot of these 2oz bars around even though they are still casting them
    Nice dimensions and weighty.

    I keep a few for fun. Most of these will probably end up in Germany.
    There's some serious gold cast bar collectors over there.
