THE FIRST RECORD OF THESE HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE INGOTS WAS MADE IN 1955, WHEN A "SMALL HOARD" OF THESE BARS APPEARED, AND WERE MADE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC. THEIR DISCOVERY IS ATTRIBUTED TO THE LATE JOHN FORD, JR., "COLLECTOR OF GOLD AND SILVER INGOTS" AND WELL-KNOWN NEW YORK COIN COLLECTOR AND NUMISMATIST, AND/OR ALTERNATIVELY TO PAUL FRANKLIN, WHO ALLEGEDLY FOUND AROUND 50 OF THEM IN A SAFE IN TONOPAH, NEVADA.

REFERENCES TO PAUL FRANKLIN RANGE FROM A WELL-KNOWN NUMISMATIST AND COLLECTOR OF PRECIOUS METAL BARS THAT SOUGHT OUT ASSAY OFFICES TO CREATE BARS FOR HIS COLLECTION, TO THE MORE FREQUENT ASSESMENT AS A NOTORIOUS COUNTERFEITER AND FORGER WHOSE TERRITORIAL GOLD COINS AND WESTERN BARS WERE OF LEGENDARY INFAMY.

RESEARCH SHOWED THAT IN 1919 A LEGITIMATE ASSOCIATION OF BUSINESSMEN WAS FORMED IN THE MINING TOWN OF RAWHIDE, NEVADA, 55 MILES SOUTH OF FALLON, AND CALLING ITSELF THE NEVADA SILVER, CO. THE COMPANY LOST ITS CHARTER IN 1927.

CONTAINS 132.3 GRAMS OF .999 FINE SILVER (4.25 OZS ASW)
