This is one of two bars I have from Universal Silver that were refined at Assay House #50 These are gorgeous bars that are quite scarce. I've only seen a couple others this size in my entire life. Out of the 4 I've seen, I own two of them. The silver purity is much purer than normal 999 fine silver. This is actually .9998 fine. When you are holding one of these in your hand, all you see is the top part of your thumb. Your palm and other fingers are hidden by the slab. You know you're holding a nice slab of this, my favorite "precious metal". I am going to spend the next few weeks posting some of my "better/favorite" pieces so others can enjoy looking at a part of early American silver refining. This is history worth owning to put it mildly.
