    I have a question for you three.
    CoinBlazers bar - the eagle (and everything else).

    When I was collecting the San Francisco assayer's 1oz rounds one of the prime indicators (at least that I learned of) of identifying a fake was the simplified rendition of the eagle, such as on CoinBlazers.

    Any of you know about the bars and Eagle on identifying fakes or not ?? I don't know but thought I would mention it.

    I only collected a couple for the eagle design a few years ago but haven't thought of them since seeing these bars. I believe they did have a couple eagle designs but they were well defined in the feathers, etc.

    Thanks for the tip :) i would have to go back and look at the 5OZ design to see
    If there was any difference and if the eagle would be same as on the round
    Even though cool this bar is branded as "Generic" so not worth much over
    Spot, just like cool factor :)

    I dont know about fakes But there are a few varieties of that design, some have the APM logo.
    Some with the one,five,ten spelled out Others with 1,5,10....
    ALWAYS check out your purchases for silver content.

    Yes, I mentioned there are 5 or 6 eagle designs.
    But if you look at his eagle design it's a simple horizontal die cut. You essentially on a metal die create an outline of the emblem (yes, think pencil outline). Then can simply do diagonal cuts to "cut out" the design. His 5oz has a very simple cut to fill out a design, the eagle doesn't even have eyeballs. The entire "cut" seems a shortcut which the fakes have (not being a fake expert on these though)

    Yes. Where did you buy it from, price to spot, weight, etc?
    Just curious

    I know there were fakes of the 1 oz rounds but I never bought the 5/10 oz variety so I never researched those. So check the quality of the surface finish, letters/numbers compared to other examples, etc.

    ok. I just found a 5 oz picture from an online reseller ... looks legit comparatively. Just wish they spent some more time in detailing that eagle.

    Two pages of posts to authenticate your bullion? No thank you! This is precisely why you should buy Silver Maple Leafs (2013 to present with security features) or junk silver as a distant second (because everyone knows what a half dollar, quarter, and dime look like).

    Who wants to spend $87 on 5 ounces of silver and then wonder if it's real? Next time, take that $87 and buy 5 Canadian Silver Maples for around $1 over spot from your dealer and have about $6 left over to put in a high yield savings account (such as online that offer 2.2% or better).
