    Good afternoon, everyone.

    Don't normally post on this side of the forum much, although I do tune in every once in a while (to see a good argument about bullion investing, haha.) Just picked up a few attractive silver bars in a trade, and wanted to know if any of them were more collectible or not. Also will gladly accept more information (education) on them if someone is familiar with them.

    Thank you

    I like that top one,Because of the toning. I would pay a small premium over spot for it. The gettysburg is cool also.

    Dealers tend to buy these art bars and rounds at 10% under and sell at 10% over spot. It's an easy market for them. I like to sort through the junk boxes of bars and rounds to find anything related to writing, printing, books, etc., and also banks, insurance companies, and commerce generally. he patriotic stuff is nice, and there is a lot of it out there... I found some 1/4-ounce silvers that I carry in my duty bag. (Never know when you will be in West Texas with the ATMs down...)

    Mintage: 11,230

    I picked up 3 more 1 ounce bars today for $1 over spot.
    I ran out if walking around money so I'll probably make a run at another 3/4 if they are still there tomorrow. 20180216_174518.jpg
    I think I'll start a new thread called Bar Rescue :D

    The International Association of Silver Art Collectors (IASAC) was conceived over talks at the kitchen table of Steve and Agnes Rood in January 1985. One of these particpants was Ed Lantz who became the first President of the club. IASAC was founded to foster friendship and promote awareness and trade among the community of silver art collectors, dealers and producers. The club was originally called the International Association of Silver Bar Collectors (IASBC), however the name was changed at the first meeting of the organization in August 1985, to include round collectors as well.
