    You guys ever see these types of engelhard bar errors? I just happened to notice it. I imagine at least someone would be willing to pay more than spot for it. (I'm keeping it.) lol

    You guys have any error bars?

    Back in the day you could buy generic silver from APMEX and ask for Engelhard and most of the time you would get it. Those were the days.

    Hi Southfork, been quite a while :O

    Think I'll hang onto this. I've been collecting for quite a while, and haven't seen one of these. Even on ebay. Normally on ebay, there's something of everything listed, even if it's at obscene prices.

    Was talking to one of the guys at the below site today, basically said value is really hard to establish unless sold through auction. He SWAG that it is likely to be $100+ given rarity, ease of identification as an error, and collector interest in engelhards in general.

    Nice! likely to be an error where they duplicated a run or something. As long as they're both authentic, its an error all right :)

    See how the "2" on the bar on the left is a little lower than the other number? I suspect the other poster that said the die got stuck on that number is correct. It didn't roll to the 3.
