    San Francisco Mint Strip Cast Silver Ingot
    Type Two Hallmark, 20.76 Ounces

    San Francisco Mint Strip Cast / Sheared Silver Ingot. 20.76 Ounces. Type Two Hallmark. Strip cast ingots are an interesting and short-lived series. They were produced between 1952 and 1955 (two Type Three hallmark bars are known from 1960). The ingot was cut on at least one side with a metal plate cutting shear, which explains why these were formerly termed Sheared Plate ingots. No 5-ounce Strip Cast ingots were produced. Most are in the 20-ounce class, but some weigh as much as 144 ounces. It would be interesting to know where this ingot has been for the past 65 years or so as it is not listed on Ken Conaway's Register of known Strip Cast ingots. All the necessary legends are imprinted on the top side: Type Two hallmark / 210 / 340 / 20.76 OZ / 99.75 / FINE. The surfaces retain much original brightness of the silver with toning present to a greater degree on the top side and much less on the bottom side. The ingot measures: 55 mm x 96 mm x 12 mm.
    From The Dr. Brian J. Baldwin Collection.
