THE FACE OF THE BAR BEARS THE ARIZONA ASSAY OFFICE COMPANY STAMP TO THE LEFT, WHICH HAS THE REGISTRY NUMBER "5479" WITHIN THE OUTLINE OF THE STATE OF ARIZONA; TO THE RIGHT IS STAMPED THE FINENESS "999", WEIGHT "4.92 OZS" AND SERIAL NUMBER "1005".

THE ARIZONA ASSAY OFFICE OPERATED THROUGHOUT THE 1960'S BY A MAN NAMED JACK STONE. THIS BAR WAS MORE THAN LIKELY MADE FROM LOCALLY MINED ARIZONA SILVER.

THESE BARS ARE SAID TO HAVE BEEN MADE FOR PAUL FRANKLIN AROUND 1969.

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. FRANKLIN MOVED TO ARIZONA FROM NEW YORK IN 1963, THIS BAR IS GENUINE AND ACCURATELY STAMPED AND ASSAYED, OFFERING AN INTERESTING ORIGIN OR PROVENANCE FOR THE COLLECTOR.

BAR CONTAINS 4.92 OUNCES OF .999 FINE SILVER

33 MM IN WIDTH 50 MM IN LENGTH AND 9 MM THICK
