Bullish Cattle Ranch

20200907_165310.jpg

This is another bar I got before the spike in spot. Found this one in an antique store, and it was marked way too expensive. I bargained with the owner and got down to $20 even, which I was happy with. I figured the bar was old, but wasn't for sure on any specifics until I looked it up later. I just liked the cows. Seems especially appropriate now that silver has gone on a bit of a bull run itself.

This is from 1974, made by the Hamilton mint. Limited to 10,000 pieces, but I suspect the actual number in existence is much lower, given the meltoffs that have happened since it was created. It's part of a 50(!) bar set celebrating America. I'm sure I've seen others in this set, and I think I may even have one. I'll have to consult the archives when I get a chance.

This is a very cool looking silver bar, I like the cattle ranch design on the front.

Thanks. That's what drew my eye as well. It's not something you see everyday.

Nice toning once again @methus!
I recommend you consult @dfinney, she collects these bars if I'm not mistaken plus I hear her consultation fees are lower than low. 😂

PS: Have you ever purchased a bar that is not toned? 😱🤔🤔

I don't always purchase silver, but when I do, I make sure it's toned. -XX

Seriously, though, I am much more likely to purchase something if it's toned. I just like the history that inherently comes with pieces that have seen some air. I do buy shiny, I just don't get as excited about it.

@methus, @summertooth is right. Wait... what did he say? 🤣😂🤣

I LOVE THIS BAR! And I do collect them. $20!! That is a STEAL!

I’ll just DM you my address if it’s clogging up your collection and you want to lighten your load. 😂🤣

If you need this to help your collection, we can work something out. I like it, but it sounds like you might be a better long term home for it. I'll see if I do have any others in the series.
