[ONE PLATINUM CONTRACT] [ASSAY N0. ME 123] [LOT, SEAL No 23169-1] [WEIGHT 49.585 TR. OZS] [ENGELHARD INDUSTRIES, INC.] [113 ASTOR STREET] [NEWARK, N.J.] [07114] [Engelhard Wax Seal]UnknownInteresting example of a 49.585oz platinum bar produced by Engelhard to fulfill one platinum contract.  Believed to have been produced in the late 1970’s or early 1980’s, this bar remained in the same family and in original wrap until its sale on April 13, 2010 for amount $91,525.00.  It is possible that this bar remains wrapped in the original wrapping to this day.  Will we ever get to see what the bar actually looks like?  
Also possible.
