I came across this 10 ounce bar, sterling. I think it might have some historical significance, value.  The engraving looks to be superb. Anybody come across one of these or have thoughts on value.  I did send an email to the Park City historical folks. They liked it and felt it had historical value but had no history. They thought I might have somebody date it by the engraving work and then they could look deeper into the city records.

i cannot help you on the identification but this must be of significance. i didn't know where Park City was but i see it is in Utah. A 10 oz bar is quite a lump even if silver mining country. It would have been more valuable back in the day than now.
i think a highly finished bar with engraving like this - plus i expect it would have come in a presentation box when new - this would be $15 - 
Using the inflation calculator from 1872 (a date i saw for Park City in wikipedia) this gives $372. So it is a decent amount to be presenting. It would have gone to something of a VIP.
It is strange there is no name and date. For once you wish they had engraved these details on the silver. This is odd - why present a valuable silver bar to a VIP but not include the name?

Always cast your vote - Spoil your ballot slip. Put 'Spoilt Ballot - I do not consent.' These votes are counted. If you do not do this you are consenting to the tyranny. None of them are fit for purpose. 
A tyranny relies on propaganda and force. Once the propaganda fails all that's left is force.

COVID-19 is a cover story for the collapsing economy. Green Energy isn't Green and it isn't Renewable.

Without names and dates, I doubt is there is a lot to be found.

I am aware that Park City is a US ski area, with a link to Courchevel in France.

Park City is a Sister City to Courchevel, France, This relationship was established in 1984 to develop relationships between our communities.  These exchanges enhance many areas of our communities, including business, culture, arts and education.  French representatives from Courchevel, the largest ski area in the world, felt that the Park City area ski resorts were very similar to Courchevel, with potential of identical stature.  The Park City Sister City Association (PCSCA) was established to enhance and support this Sister City relationship.

There is also a Park City piste in the Saulire sector of Les Trois Vallees,which I have skied a number of times.

Les Trois Vallees is the best place I have ever skied. Can't wait to get back there one day, just amazing. Had a go at Grand Couloir, not my best skiing...... but great fun.

I can remember many years ago, a bunch of snobby gits telling me the Grand Couloir was too hard for me. Sure it would have been a challenge for my ability at the time, but I have done it numerous times since, although not the last time I was there. I do some more difficult stuff off piste, but with mountain guides.

Well, seeing your propensity to go skiing in your Speedos, are you sure you're weren't on the piste?

I like to go on the piste at the apres ski.

The Sovereign is the quintessentially British coin.  It has a German queen on the front, an Italian waiter on the back, and half of them were made in Australia.

You'll be asking me if I ever slept with the chalet girls next!

Well, did you go on the piste with the chalet girls?
