My dad has a set of bankmarked 1 troy ounce silver ingots for each of
the fifty states, minted in 1972.   I'm curious what these may be
worth.   If anyone has any suggestions on where I can look to get a
value, please e-mail me.  Many thanks.

Find out the going price per troy ounce for silver (I'd guess that the
Wall Street Journal, or the business section of the Sunday New York
Times would have this), make a modest deduction for the cost of melting
down the ingots, and you'll have the value.  Sorry.

The only reason a person would inquire about value for something like this is
that they want to sell.  To me anything of my dad's would be priceless.   You
can't take money with you when you die.  Enjoy collecting!

You may be able to get a good bid at ebay. Lot's of people have an interest in
these ingots.

I have to agree, intrinsic value can be much greater than extrinsic.
