    Even though i have several other bars of silver mostly 10 oz and higher, i did recently
    Get started on collecting Johnson Matthey 10 oz bars exclusively, both the JM bars and
    The Englehardt bars are very collectable and do demand a significant premium over
    Spot, here,s what i have so far.

    first example moving left to right:

    Johnson Matthey 10 OZ ( Toronto Dominion Bank) Population: <250
    Johnson Matthey 10 OZ ( JM Branded) Population: <750,000
    Johnson Matthey 10 OZ ( Escalante Mine (1982) Population: <1,000
    Johnson Matthey 10 OZ ( New York Republic Bank) Population <3,000

    There are 38 Varieties in the 10 OZ category most are obtainable though a
    few have really low populations of <25 or <50 so not going to be the easiest
    Would like to have this collection completed by the end of nest year, will post results
    On this thread.

    I've got quite a few 10oz bars safely stashed away but it never occurred to me to think that their may be varieties. A JM silver bar is just that to me. I probably don't have anything special though as I did not pay anything but the normal prevmium for them.

    Just added this one today Johnson Matthey 10 Oz Poured silver bar, rarer then the
    stamped versions and cost allot more but found this one for a very reasonable price
    Also allot smaller and allot more chunky as well in comparison.

    Wow very nice.
    I'd be willing to bet you didn't just start with a collection like that.
    I have a few pieces and some of the 1964 Morgan dollars.

    Here,s another, i just got in the mail today as part of my JM 10 OZ bar collection
    Good ones dont come up everyday at a decent price, the JM, Manfra,Tordella and
    Brooks bar has a population of only 8,500 and is the 2nd Series in the run of these
    Gorgeous bars and this one actually provided a bonus, which you dont see very often the actual assay certificate for the bar !!

    @mpcusa Next time it's handy, I'll post my Engelhard 10 oz, it's a very scarce type I happened upon a few years ago. I'll post a picture if you want to see it. (It's in deep storage right now)
