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.

I'll never forget the 60 Minutes piece on Franklin Mint some years ago.
People would bring these complete sets to a coin dealer, display them
proudly and ask for a price.  The dealer bought them at s***value
and dumped them in a big bucket for their trip to the smelter.
