    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, 8 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
    11. jimborasco jimborasco, 8 years ago
      Value be dammed.. They have value to me!!
    12. jimborasco jimborasco, 8 years ago
      There seems to be confusion between value....and worth. Worth is monetary, value is what they mean to you.
    13. musikchoo musikchoo, 8 years ago
      You are correct Jimbo!!
    14. jimborasco jimborasco, 8 years ago
      Hazzah!! That IS what matters. Bravo, Jason
    15. jimborasco jimborasco, 8 years ago
      Had this tested by a jeweler friend....NOT clad.
    16. jimborasco jimborasco, 7 years ago
      This was told to me by some people on here as CLAD. It's not!
