    1959-Dated Round Hallmark Silver Ingot
    San Francisco Mint, 23.26 Ounces

    1959 MS San Francisco Mint Round Hallmark Silver Ingot. 23.26 Ounces. This is a nicely laid out 20-ounce class mint ingot with plenty of heft in-hand. The Round Dated Hallmarks are most frequently seen from 1956 or 1959, but the 1959s are seen less often of the two. Likewise, among the 1959 ingots, those from lot 37 (stamped on the lower edge) are the most commonly encountered along with lot 38. The hallmark is tilted just a bit to the left and is well-centered on the top side. Below the hallmark is 965 / 23.26 OZS / 999.75 FINE. The surfaces are bright throughout with little toning evident. The recesses in the devices retain patina, which gives the imprints a distinctive contrast against the brightness of the ingot. An interesting feature seen on this bar is the top of the fineness punch that is clearly imprinted above 999.75 in the form of a straight line.
