This is one of my favorite "old pour" bars. This particular bar weighs 40.2 ounces and when I bought it, I had to pay over twice the silver "spot" price. This is a very scarce to rare bar that I have never seen another like it. I own one other "Chovanak" bar in a "one-ounce" version. Both of these are from an early 20th century refiner from Helena Montana. It is one "monster" chunk of pure silver and one that I am very proud to own. I would be very "hard pressed" to ever part with it. I bought this bar along with several hundred others over a long period of time when silver was in "single digits". I like the "old pour" style where there is no uniform weight such as 5-oz or 10 oz etc. 90% of all my bars have a decimal point in the final weight tally such as this 40.2 oz and others like 20.41 oz 10.23 oz 5.76 oz etc etc... I have standard bars that weigh exactly 5 or 10 or 50 ounces but none excite me like these old ones. there is no category for 999 fine silver so it's in the "sterling silver" category.
