Description

 

This 1876 Virginia City, Storey County, Nev., silver ingot produced by The Ophir Mine is a stunning example of a classic old western ingot. Probably the best-known example of an Ophir Mine piece with its beautifully engraved front displaying very little wear and impeccable details without the brownish blemish over the number 7 the other example has. This bar market Number 3 “No 3”, weight is 9 ozs with Gold 46.5 FINE and Silver 948. To date there are only two known examples of a surviving Ophir Mine Ingot with rumors of a third existing although we haven’t seen it yet.
