Engelhard 1 Troy Ounce Silver bar ingot, .999 Fine, Commercial bar, horizontal (For Auction 11-19-2012)

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, horizontal (landscape) orientation "Commercial Bar" (serialized) with the name "Engelhard" in a rectangle with angled corners on the front, and the "normal" Engelhard back design with the word Engelhard in the rectangle repeated diagonally several times on the back.

The front side has the name "Engelhard" in a rectangle with angled corners. This is the later rectangle logo design, with shorter upright segments on the left and right side and bigger angled corners. Below that, there's the text "1 Troy Oz." and ".999 Fine Silver". At the bottom is the serial number. This one is number PK73920. According to reference sources, I believe there were about 550,000 of these bars minted.

The back side of this bar has the "Engelhard" text in the rectangle with angled corners repeated many times diagonally across the back.

Here are pictures of the actual bar being auctioned.
