Engelhard 10 oz "Old Pour, Bull Logo" - Bullion of the Month January 2015

I picked up this wonderful bullion bar at a coin show.  It is a 10 oz .999 silver poured bar from the former Canadian branch of Engelhard, prior to their buyout by BASF.  Engelhard is one of the few refiners which produced with a serial number for every piece of bullion.  It is distinguished as being Canadian by the "bull logo" - the little hallmark circle with "horns" to the left of the Engelhard name. Most American 10 oz poured bars have a serial number prefix of "PB".  This particular bar is worth a significant premium over spot due to its relative scarcity (yes, there is a collector market in old pour style bullion!).  For more information visit the interesting website
