Buy Tombstone 1 Kilo Silver Nugget Bars at SD Bullion
Own a piece of American Old West history with this silver bar designed around the historic city of Tombstone in Arizona. The town was founded in 1877 in Arizona in a territory that today belongs to Cochise County. At the time, prospector Ed Schieffelin was scouting the area in search of valuable ores, or “rocks”. Local soldiers, who were camping with him, told him he would only find his “tombstone” there. The whole area was overflowing with Apache Indians and they were not willing to share their territory.
Ed eventually succeeded in finding silver. He established mines that would produce around $50 million in silver bullion (more than a billion dollars in today’s figures). The operations expanded rapidly and the local population grew from 100 to over 14,000 in a few years. The city received the name Tombstone in regard to those warnings from the soldiers to Ed Schieffelin.
During those years, Tombstone was the site of many killings and shootouts between law enforcers and criminals. That includes the famous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in 1881. The city still attracts many tourists drawn to Old West history.
Each of these tombstone silver nugget bars have a unique shape and markings on the surface. They are all minted in .999 fine gold content by prominent Arizonan refinery, Scottsdale Mint. They come in a bag with a certificate of authenticity as well.
The obverse of the silver bar depicts the weight and purity level next to the Scottsdale Mint logo, a majestic lion’s head wearing a crown. The inscription “MADE BY SCOTTSDALE MINT” encircles the insignia. The words on the reverse read “TOMBSTONE ARIZONA TERRITORY” and “SILVER NUGGET”.
The Scottsdale Mint manufactures precious metals products. They are among the finest domestic refiners of precious metals. Their base is just a couple of hours north of Tombstone.
These 1 kilo silver bars have 32.15 troy ounces of .999 pure silver bullion and could constitute a great way to increase your silver holdings while honoring the folklore and history of the Old West. They are IRA approved for those who are willing to fund their self-directed retirement accounts.
