Sounds good Does anyone still have any interest for them?
There's always buyers for old pored bars
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.
Smallest gold bars I have come across!
Each bar weights 1/10 gram
A thirty year old 5oz Harrington Bar
Beautiful and very rare
This German vintage cast bar collection is so impressive, I thought I would share it with you guys
Wouldn't we all like to own one like this ?
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.
I've come across some of these Engelhard Australia 1/10 fractional rounds 1980's I've been told ,never seen them before
Score! Have seen only one of those before and it wasn't carded.
Was it a Westpac or the Wales? ("You can bank on the Wales")
Showing the age now.
Found a strip of 5 joined together
Leave them joined!
Im planning to
Had a reasonable offer for the lot to
Kalgoorlie Bullion Exchange - bump into these occasionally.
Beautiful collection there...and expensive too.....Is that a 'Westpac' bank W on the top left???
Edit...Just noticed G.P mentioned the Westpac bar above.....still an awesome collection!
Was circa 1992 - so whatever they traded as in NSW then.
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'
