Opinions on silver pieces


Recommended Posts

Hello silver experts.

Anyone have original run JM bars from '79 that look this good? 😛 Both weigh 32 grams in the plastic. Wondering if anyone has an opinion.

Do you think they're fake? Try a sound test. There is an app for your phone called "precious coin tester". You could maybe try that. With the toning on them makes me think they're legit. I've seen thousands of 1oz bars in my lifetime.

No, I don't necessarily think they're fake; I just have nothing to compare them to really. That is awesome as these appear to be from the first bars JM did in 1979 of only 30,000 or so.

Unfortunately I had to delete previous images (5 mb cap?) in order to upload these ones it appears but any thoughts on these below? Both individually numbered also and I thought likely would have been too specific to fake.

Thanks for the input and I'll look into the phone program.

Thanks for the reply. I read (possibly around here) that someone had similar 1970s art bars that tested good as silver and came in at the exact same weight. This one is .98 troy ounce. It's a Hamilton Mint America series piece and individually numbered, as both are.

The one with the horse is thinner but slightly larger overall. The thickest is the "Great White Heron" one. The JM bars are larger in diameter and width but thinner. Again thought these two art/animal bars were likely too specific for anyone to have ever faked.
