Silver (Ex. George Vaux Collection)
Zacatecas, Mexico
Cabinet, 9.6 x 5.0 x 2.0 cm
Ex. Richard Hauck
This specimen, a true oldtimer, is a solid mass of vein silver with minor associated copper on the back side. It was first brought to the states in 1890 by top US dealer AE Foote and it then went to of one of America's greatest collectors, George Vaux (and retains his label as you see, with date on back). This is a very RICH AND HEFTY SILVER SPECIMEN for the locale, by old or modern standards!
