Does anyone know what the purpose of these ingots would be. I picked these up at a flea market for, I think, $5.00. Many years ago when silver was inexpensive. Of course, it is almost the image of a buffalo nickel. Hopefully i'm not harboring a counterfeiting item. :-( But what dummy would counterfeit nickels? Jimbo

    They were produced in large numbers for what reason?
  2. jimborasco jimborasco, 2 years ago
    They made them in large numbers but i can't find any like them anywhere on the internet. There should be some record of them. At least someone selling a set.

    Thanks for the information fhrjr2-- these "clad" silver pieces are a little dangerous on the secondary market with recent silver prices.

    Crooks will counterfit anything for profit. Coin dealer told me 50d nickles were counterfitted resulting in a decline in value of the orignals

    Value be dammed.. They have value to me!!
  12. jimborasco jimborasco, 2 years ago
    There seems to be confusion between value....and worth. Worth is monetary, value is what they mean to you.

    You are correct Jimbo!!
  14. jimborasco jimborasco, 2 years ago
    Hazzah!! That IS what matters. Bravo, Jason
  15. jimborasco jimborasco, 2 years ago
    Had this tested by a jeweler friend....NOT clad.

    This was told to me by some people on here as CLAD. It's not!
