"Minted from U. S. Strategic Stockpile Silver formerly stored at U. S. Assay Office" - San Francisco or New York.
In the late 1960s, the Defense Logistics Agency had over 165 million ounces of silver in its stockpile. The government dumped a large amount of this silver on the open market in 1980 and 1981 to drive down silver prices after the Hunt brothers tried to corner the market. All dated 1981, these bars are over 30 years old and so expect that all have some tarnishing, dings, and scratches.
