Ok, Thanks.  Then, I'd better ammend my items, as, once I recalculated
with these new figures, the different on the bank ingots adds up to $50 or
so.  A little less on the Western Mines ingots, but I do need to recalc.

Thanks!

Many Franklin Mint bars are 500 grains.

They still offer a Christmas ingot in 500 or 1000 grains.  It has been a neat
program since 1969.  The 2000 Ingots are available now.  www.franklinmint.com

Oh yeah, if you e-mail me a list.  I can look up the exact weight in my
Franklin Mint guidebook.  And I can get the mintage too.

Most FM is advertised in grains.  At least in the 1970's.

Be careful weighing them.  That involves touching and scratching and to me that
makes them worthless.

spot silver is for .999 fine gross aka 480 grains approx.

last issue fm book is 1982 however 1980 works fine in most cases. at least it
has a conversion table for spot silver and an actual instruction book to help
you figure content of issues.

if bv is listed in book then use conversion table.

if in book a rather high listing of market value, then the market will find the
correct level eventually.
