San Francisco Mint Silver Ingot, 4.96 Ounces
San Francisco Mint MS Silver Ingot. 4.96 Ounces. Early 1930s
to Mid-1940s. Type One Hallmark. Small Font Serial Number. Curved
Stem 9s. 999.5 Fine. On his Silver Ingots website, Ken Conaway
points out that this particular series is one of only two (the
other being the Type One hallmark, large font serial number, curved
stem 9s) where a fineness change occurs. Most of the ingots in this
series are found with 999.5 fineness, then it briefly changes to
999.0 in the 700s, then back to 999.5 to finish the series (the
highest serial number known is 1342). This is an attractive and
original ingot that is uncleaned and shows light to medium density
gray patina over all sides. The top side is laid out in the usual
fashion: Type One hallmark / 897 / 999.5 / FINE. The weight is
impressed on the back (as always) and is almost perfectly centered:
4.96 / OZS. The ingot measures: 32mm x 50 mm x 8mm.
Type One Hallmark, Small Font, Curved 9s
