So I found these at a thrift store. Lady thought they were trash and had them outside, probably too dirty for her store. And to my surprise, after i bought them, I rinsed em in water to remove the loose rust and there was gold in them. The molds made 260 oz and 700 oz gold bars and one says BRAUN 700oz G 375 oz S and the other says F.W. Braun 140oz S 260oz g. I am curious if anyone would know anything about the company name on these.

    Click on the small mold picture, same as yours, and it will bring up a good discription of the mold and company. Also shows some of his other products.
    Hope this helps,
