    1946 Philadelphia Mint Silver Ingot
    26.44 Ounces, Scarce Weight Class

    1946 Philadelphia Mint Silver Ingot. 26.44 Ounces. Type Three Hallmark, distinguished by a star on each side of PHILADELPHIA. The Type Three hallmark was only used in two years, 1946 and 1956 on Philadelphia ingots -- according to Ken Conaway only a single 1956 bar is known. As with all other known 1946 ingots in this weight class most of the statutory requirements are stamped on the top side (except the melt number). Also consistent is the size of the ingots from this year, as well as all ingots were poured from Melt No. 10. The 20 to 30-ounce class Philadelphia ingots are about twice as rare as their 5-ounce counterparts. The top side is stamped: 1946 / 999. / Philadelphia hallmark (upside down) / No. 309 / OZS 26.44. The melt number is on the short upper side. The surfaces are original with even gray-rose patina throughout. The ingot measures 41 mm x 101 mm x 19 mm.
