    For college graduation, my uncle gave me a silver bar, but didn't tell me anything about it. It's marked as follows:

    999+ FINE SILVER 10 TR. OZ.
    ENGLEHARD

    followed by a serial number

    I know it's not worth a ton, just based on the value of silver, but that's not what really concerns me. I just want to know the history of these things, etc.

    Thanks.

    Mine is much plainer than that. No graphics, etc, just a large Engelhard logo. Hmm.

    Thanks for the help.

    Save it for when you fall in love with the woman of your dreams and oh, wait, that's GOLD, not sliver. Screw that, then. In that case get a cool bass pickguard made from it or something.

    Put it away. It'll go up in value.

    I've been looking to get into bullion a bit myself.

    Melt it down and cast it into bullets in case you run into any werewolves.

    Somehow I figured Smash would be the one that knew what was going on here.

    I figured it wouldn't be worth a whole bunch. Apparently they're something he has a bit of a collection of. I doubt I'll ever go and sell the thing, because, really, I can't imagine myself hard up for 150$ to 300$. I'm more likely to keep it as a keepsake, etc.

    Thanks for all the help, guys.
