Yes thank you very much. I saw that site as well. Just so odd how hard it has been to find the stats. I actually spent a half and hr on the phone trying to call various people at CS in Switzerland with no success. Most other mints seem to list their dimensions very clearly.

Will report back when i find something.

Thank you.

I might suggest sending an email to PAMP suisse and ask them if they are minting the credit suisse bars (and if so, the specs).

That's an awesome resource. Thanks for digging and thanks for sharing. BTW - you can right click on their PDF files and save them to your local hard drive.

I noticed people talking about verifying gold bars and I thought I'd give some advice on verifying silver bars. First, get yourself a serious magnet ( a rare earth magnet) and then hold your bar at a 45 degree angle and put the magnet at the high end of the bar. The magnet will slowly slide down the bar. Try this with something non-magnetic to see the difference. The magnet will have a noticeable delay as it slides down the bar.

Bet you didn't know that silver was partially magnetic. Anyway, give it a try. But you have to use a real magnet (not a crappy fridge magnet).

Here's a video on it.


Cheers

Hi twiceisnice

I would advise you remove the number of ounces of gold you purchased from your post and be as vague as you can about how much and where it might be in all future posts

Otherwise welcome aboard

and no im not a bit upset that you have a very nice size holding
possibly a bit puzzled that you bought so much in one purchase and got such a big discount ...........

There was a question a while back about scales...

I use MyWeight Palm Scales for gold and silver checking / buying / junk, etc.

Check out:

http://www.oldwillknottscales.com/bu...gh-scales.html

and be sure to buy something that measures to the right decimal place!!

See:

http://www.oldwillknottscales.com/sc...esolution.html

Although, some fakes measure right where they should be. I would think you are safe with Perth mint items. However, you will probably buy more things in the future and a scale is indispensable, IMHO.
