Hard to believe that a full year has passed since I decided to start up the Silver Ingots Blog on February 17, 2013. 74 posts and almost 8,500 page views later we have worked our way through my 5 oz hallmark collection "A" through "R" with "S" through "Z" remaining and plenty more to cover about government ingots, in particular those from the Mint Of The United States At San Francisco.
A note of thanks to everyone that follows and reads my posts. It is one thing to have a passion about your collection; it is something else to be able to share that passion in this manner with all of you. Special thanks to a few who have contributed to the success of the Silver Ingots Blog; Julie for her support and never complaining about me "working silver"; Christopher for always giving me first shot; Edward and Steven for significant collection additions; Todd for loaning me examples for my writings; Chris for hallmark name assistance; David for historical eBay records; Tom for getting all of this started and Fred for helping to spread the word about our passion for silver ingot collecting and the search for historical information.
The Silver Ingots Blog had opened up numerous opportunities for me to acquire information about my hallmark collection and I am looking forward to the continuation of our trip through the remainder of my collection.
Even more opportunities have arisen as it relates to my government ingot collection, and with each a possibility of not only acquiring new examples but obtaining information that continues to progress my work on accurate historical dating and chronological organization of Mint Of The United States At San Francisco ingots.
Here's looking forward to year two!
