    That looks like an older bar (perhaps 1970s vintage).
    I wonder if it is related to the newer RMC (Republic Metals Corporation) silver bars ?

    RMC is in bankruptcy I think

    Asahi bought RMCs assets in a bankruptcy auction and now operates the refinery as Asahi Florida.

    I bought a few of these from JM Bullion a few years ago.

  • So does anyone know where 'The Republic Mint was located by chance? A Chula Vista, California company at one time maybe?
