How are the tombstone silver nuggets made?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I've had a 5oz tombstone nugget for a few months now and just got it out to have a little look and feel of it and wondered how these are made in regards to the frosted edge of them, the way it seems like it's just been broken off a bigger bar. The bottom edge of mine is pretty smooth compared to the rest of the edge and seems like it was the edge of one bigger than mine, so if they are broken off somehow do they just chip away to reach 5oz?

If anyone knows or has an idea, I am interested, cheers

Unfortunately I can't answer your question but wanted to post just to say how much I love the looks of the Tombstone silver. I don't yet have one and really should seek to amend that - perhaps on my next trip to Canada. I'd certainly be interested to read any insights other members might be able to provide about them and how they are made.

I have written to scottsdale to ask them if they would like to join the forum and comment in this topic, so lets hope they do :) 

That's great Chris and if they do pop on hopefully they stick around and give us some first looks at future releases as they do some great stuff

It would be interesting to find out just how they cast the “nuggets”. Hammering each nugget isn’t cost effective to my mind.

What would be interesting is to see two bars side by side and compare the finish. Cast they would be almost identical, hammered there will be differences.
