the 1OZ models but you can fake anything
so how did the guy find out it was a fake ?
No details on the other site yet.
Glad I don't mess with gold bars, not ever!
Run those through the Coinstar just to be sure.
If they don't make it to the reject slot, you know something is up.
Yep, I'm thinking a gold layer that thick would entirely shield the tungsten core from a commercial XRF gun.
Wonder what a Sigma scanner would make of it? I think they claim to be able to detect a tungsten core through up to 1.5mm of gold.
Any chance we could get the poster to put a micrometer on that outer layer and tell us how thick it is?
No new information yet
It was on collectors.com under precious metals titled
Gotta watch them gold bars
Didn't know if I could put a link to another coin forum without catching a BAN here goes nothing
Then the wholesaler tested it with their $16,000 gun. It read .98 fine
So They tore into it and this is what they found.
I'd love to know what the .02 showed as. If you see even a fractional percentage of tungsten coming out in the analysis, that should be a "get the drill" signal. (I don't think you'd ever see tungsten as a significant component of an actual gold melt...)
