I think you need to open a shop in Greenville ! ! ! :clap:

North or South?

South may have all the money to support a nice bar shop! We really need a bullion specialty shop somewhere in the South, too many coin shops. I'd think you could make a killing as a niche/novelty.

Here is an Israel set that I really didn't think I'd win as I put in a low-ball bid at an auction. There 2.3 or 2.4oz each. Don't have the paper work and COA in front of me. .999 Proofs and are really nice pieces of work. Kind of reminds me of Medallic Art in NY. Put in an absentee bid and won it.

Sometimes it works in your favor :D

Probably a vibrational engraver. It seems to be a common thing nowadays. I dunno if it is a method for Perth on these 100 oz bars ( I wouldn't be surprised.)I wouldn't think twice about it or worry about it...

Well, researching the bar....Here is similar bar on apmex and in pic it has etching too....

The bar posted by Diggin has same look, but a little more crooked and free-handed it seems..

Image edited by Mod to change img to fitimg and now we can see it all. WOW, give it a try 8-)

The rougher look is probably due to the curvature of the surface you know.
Nice work checking it out :thumbup:

Shoot, I like the bar...Im not insulting it...As a matter of fact, check the wanted section..I have an ad posted that says I want a 100oz perth bar..:)

I just thought the etching was added by a previous owner, but I see its done at the mint...

This is probably just a short-term temporary thing, but I’m really enjoying seeing Ag things that I bought in the last couple/few months presently selling for significantly more than what I paid for them. It’s been too long since the last time I enjoyed this experience. No stellar triumphs, but seeing things that I bought presently selling for 10%-15% more than I paid is nice. I suppose this pleasant little interlude will probably be over altogether too soon, but it’s a nice feeling right now.

Another questionable “victory” (???)..... I bought a 1990 1oz Kook at my LCS today for $1.50 over spot. It has one small/minor/shallow mar on the obverse. I got it for a secondary generic price, so my guess is it wasn’t a bad buy. My kids will find out what it’s worth when I’m a memory and they go to resell it...

Picked up 3 morgans, 1 peace and 6 mercs yesterday for $75. Not a great score but a score in my book none the less.

Had one a while ago and gave it up along with most of my vintage Bullion collection when I had my coin shop to keep it going. Really glad I can return this back to collection. About 20 more pieces I need to wrangle up but on to the next one :)
