"Star Mining" bars and John J Ford - interesting USODGSO note.

1 post in this topic

Here's a short note written in 1973 regarding the so-called "Star Mining" assay bars being promoted by John Ford and others.




USODGSO (United States Office of Domestic Gold and Silver Operations) did not have the resources to identify these fake Western assay bars in 1973, but there were suspicions. (More on this and related subjects will be found in the Eric P. Newman biography.)
