Before publishing the "F" list, an update to the last blog post; Chris emailed the picture below of a Foster hand stamped poured ingot weighing in at 8 oz. I had written that they were produced in 1 oz, 3 oz, 5 oz and 10 oz so add 8 oz to that. Edward has an example slightly over 8 oz and the right hand ribbon is blank so that part of the research pans out that the right hand ribbon remains blank if the weight does not border on a whole number.
The "F" list follows:
|Federal Silver Refinery|
|Franklin Bros., F.B.|
|French & Associates|
As always, let me know if anyone has something to add.
