Description

Hong Kong Shanghai Specie Office silver ingot .999 fitness, about 4.13 OZT/128.5 grams. Rare old poured and die-struck “Queen Vitoria” type in excellent condition, considering the age. FREE SHIPPING WITHIN THE U.S. FOR THIS ITEM.

A hard-to-find original “Queen Victoria” type Hong Kong-Shanghai-Specie Office poured silver ingot. A nice rectangular bar with a circular “Queen Vitoria” coin-type die impression on the upper field and silver fitness punches in the lower field. This bar’s punch-marks are more typical of a coin strike at a mint – the portrait is a raised, highly detailed impression that was left by a hard strike by a steel die. The force required to leave such a sharp design has to be much greater than needed for a more common “imprinted” stamp typically found on common silver bars.

The ingot measures about 54.3 mm by 35.5 mm at the widest point; it is about 7.2 mm thick; the pour is perfectly even without blemishes or depressions. Fitness stamp 999 is between the stamps “Victoria Regina” – royal crown VR stamp and PURE SILVER in Chinese characters. The bar weights 4.535 oz / 128.5 grams / 4.13 Troy oz (verified). Excellent overall condition with attractive light-gray with goldish-purple overtones patina; I just couldn’t get all the shades correctly on my camera. The ingot has a nice smooth “as made” texture; there are no typical nicks, dings, or chop marks. Not cleaned or tampered with; these are the actual photos.
