This auction is for a 1 troy ounce, .999 Fine silver bar made by Engelhard.
There are many variants of the Engelhard bars. This is an earlier, portrait orientation "Commercial Bar" (serialized) with the maple logo on the front and a smooth, blank back.
The front side has the Engelhard "maple logo" with the words "Assayers & Refiners" around the bottom of the logo. Below that, there's the text "1 Troy Oz." and a square with rounded corners containing the text "Fine Silver 999+". Below that is the serial number. At the upper left of the serial number stamp, there is the Engelhard "Bull" trademark. This one is serial number 028508, which is an early serial number for this series. According to reference sources, I believe there were 400,000 or fewer of these bars minted in 1981.
The back side of this bar is a blank, smooth finish.
Here are pictures of the actual bar being auctioned.
This item is a loose piece. It will be placed in a plastic bag and packed (along with a packing slip) in a bubble mailer for additional protection. I work hard to earn high ratings and compliments on my packing and shipping.
Good luck and happy bidding.
