You had implied I was trying to rip people off which isn't the case. I should have definitely mentioned these were poured bars!  I wanted to get some facts across quickly and was in a rush. I hear Amagi and Agora provide topnotch services.  Wish them the best.

Here is a photo of the bars I had come across, so you'll see my asking price was plenty reasonable:

Them being poured bars was a rather significant fact you were totally missing in the original post..
You're very right. I have been dealing in bullion (especially silver) for a while and I had never come across or even HEARD of 1oz hand-poured Engelhard bars. I did a lot of looking and this was all I could find:

http://about.ag/Engelhard-1oz.htm

Hand-poured 1ozers have to be among the rarest Engelhard products ever made-if they were truly minted by Engelhard. That I am curious about. The pour on the pictures of these is pretty terrible. I pour my own silver with a MAPP gas torch, a poor man's crucible and wood molds I buy at the craft store...they end up looking A LOT better than that. I find it difficult to believe that Engelhard would stamp such a bar with their logo (due to their respected status). Also, nearly ALL Engelhard bars ever minted have a serial number on them-these do not. I am not necessarily accusing OP of "foul play", but it would be very easy for the Chinese to produce a "hand-poured", make an Engelhard stamp and stamp it. All things considered, I would stay away from these-even though the idea of a 1oz hand-poured Engelhard bar is pretty cool.

Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

Dunno anything about silver or whats legit / whats not, but just FYI to other bitcoiners, all sorts of fakes for silver and gold coins are sold cheap on Silk Road. You can buy a silver plated 1 oz fake coin for like $6 per on there. They claim it weighs the same as the real thing.

The difference is pretty obvious on those to anyone that deals with silver.  They are too thick.

I was thinking that, too. But who knows how short they are.
