New York - The 1920 Ingot
The 1920 United States Assay Office New York silver ingot No. 182, 6.61 ozs & Melt No. 653 is among the most rare and finest examples known to exist. This ingot is a standout with a brilliant gunmetal finish and an eagle vignette that to date, I have not seen on any other United States Assay Office New York ingot, silver or gold.
Other than the rotation of the NYAO hallmark, this represents one of the neatest placements of not only markings on the obverse but of those on the leading edge facing, top edge facing and right side facing. The weight of 6.61 ozs is on the right side facing.
The ingot serial number 182 is on the leading edge facing, the melt number 653 is on the top edge facing and the reverse is blank.
