Up for sale is just over 1 troy ounce of .999 Silver. It is in the form of silver shot. This is what I buy to add to my 925 Silver when melting, to ensure purity. There is no need to do an assay on this. As a matter of fact, one method of assaying silver is heating it to its melting point and letting a gram or so drop into a bucket of water. If the resultant silver pellet is 100% silver colored, the silver is .999 pure. 925 Silver shot is the same shape as .999 silver shot, but is colored because of the alloys in it (see picture below). I'm selling this because some of my melting equipment is broken and the furnace crucible I ordered won't get to me until February. You may ask why you would want to have silver in this form instead of in a nice round or bar. Well, assuming you have a scale, you can measure out as much silver as you want and thus run transactions that way. ApMex usually sells out of their shot and its always  a "hot item" as investors buy bags of it because you can tell purity just by looking at it and because you can measure out any amount you want. I am asking 2.5 BTC  shipped which is a fair price considering shot always sells for a premium above spot. Shipping is free anywhere in the US!

Sorry for OT, but I recently bought a casascius silver coin, and I was suprised that it didn't dent when I dropped it.  How hard is .999 silver?

the more pure the silver the softer it gets.

maybe try removing the hard plastic and giving the coin a good wack with a hammer, let me know if it makes a dent, thanks  Cheesy

What kind of surface did you drop it on? Odds are it wouldn't dent. I've made a couple of .999 bars and I've had to hammer relatively hard still to stamp the bar.

I dropped it on a tile floor.  Yahoo answers seemed evenly split between people saying silver is "soft" and people saying "hard" so I was confused.

Silver is technically a soft metal. That doesn't mean it's like a gel or something-it's still metal. The reason silver jewelry is 925 is because .999 jewelry would be too soft.

Your bars were not .999. They were at best .925. Which is what people use for dinnerware and rings because it is very resistant to denting. Silver isn't as soft as something like gold. But damage can occur with enough abuse.

Yes, I make primarily 925 bars because they are the easiest-no having to deal with harmful chemicals, purity easily guaranteed with the use of flux and .999 silver shot. But I have had people send me .999 old generic rounds, which I add a bit of flux and shot to (to ensure no weight is lost), hand-pour, and stamp whatever it is they want on there. I have found that a large number of people prefer a hand-poured bar as opposed to another generic round-they contract me to turn their rounds into a bar/ingot. So I'd appreciate it if you didn't tell me what I do. I am well aware of it.
