This Coca-Cola-Houston silver art bar was minted in 1977 by the World Wide Mint (WWM-71). According to the second edition of the book called "Coca-Cola Bottler's 75th Anniversary Ingot and Round Guide Book 1975 to 1988", It is valued at $50.00. Most of the time, silver art bars on ebay are not going to sell at guide book price. It will probably go for about $40. Maybe $45 on a "perfect" day. He wants to have a fresh start but hoping and praying for someone to pay $350,000.00 for a Coca-Cola silver art bar that is worth "only" $50.00 is not going to give him the fresh start for his family. Here is the ebay auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/75th-Coca-Cola-Edition-Silver-Bar-/110545007651?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Coins_US_Individual&hash=item19bcfef423 I am going to put this auction on my ebay "watch list" to see what the winning bid will be. I do not think that there will be any bids on this silver art bar but I could possibly be wrong on this. This auction has just over 2 days left on it. We will see.
