    A nice bar you have there SydneySilver.
    Is that a core between the 5 and 9?
    A real shame if it was!

    The Camera is not great quality with these types of images, but I don't think it'd quite be a core.

    If you want to get a premium instead of spot, it might be a good idea to try shooting a few more better shots.
    Current image does not do justice to the bar and is actually a turnoff to buyers as it looks like it was cored.
    A 5oz bar is always going to have difficulty fetching a decent premium so you need to present it well.
    Cheers

    Each bar weights 1/10 gram

    I see an Engelhard in there!

    Also a Westpac gold bar from when they used to have gold account passbooks. Have seen a 10oz one of these before.

    Its been almost ten months since that post, but I'll translate. This is for the horizontal bar on p2 of this thread.

    Main horizontal inscription: "Good fortune of dragon and phoenix"

    30g "thousand exact" gold (equivalent to 99.9%)

    Dragon design above it appears to be jeweler's logo.

    Vertical writing on far left: Established 1846

    Vertical writing on far right: 'Old Phoenix (something) Silver House'
