Testing My YPS Silver Bars and Others With Specific Gravity Test
Testing My YPS Silver Bars and Others
So my friend do you feel the engelhart are worth the premium?
Thank you for the demonstration Sir!
Nice test!!! If you use 2 wires the bar/skull wont spinn.
Thank you, very good and well explained. 🙂
I learn so much watching your videos!
Instead of using string, it’s much easier to use a long plastic coated metal twist-tie to suspend the silver. The silver won’t spin around and you can wrap the twist-tie around any shape. After you tare the water and the container, make sure you dip the twist-tie in the water to get the weight of the empty twist-tie (the one I used was 0.3g). You’ll need to subtract this weight from the weight of the submerged silver.
Very interesting, thanks for sharing.
Did you tare the scales between dips? Water came out with the pieces.
if you use 2 strings on 2 sides of the larger silver you could stop the spinning
Where can I find a density chart for metals that gives a density RANGE, like Chad’s ?
I love these how to videos. I want to do this with some of my stuff….
The copper tested high. Perhaps copper compresses when it’s struck? And that number is actually on the low side, due to the string going into the water. Actually it being dipped last and water being lost, could cause a high ready if you didn’t tare each time.
That’s great! I like it. it’s very useful.
Nice video, Thank you. Now I will go a buy a digital scale and try to check my own stuff.
fantastic great clip
Yes, most informative video I’ve seen. Easy step by step way to test silver yourself. Thanks!
Haha at 5:05 I laughed so hard when you said "o it’s just changed, dummy" to your scale. Anyway, really thanks so much for the information that I’ve been searching for quite awhile. It’s very helpful thanks. 😀
Bars I mean
That was great , thank you
If the gravity is 10.3333333 is it silver?
molybdenum 10.22, is close to silver 10.4 to 10.6, but this test is good enough to detect the difference
DONT FORGET ABOUT molybdenum. IT HAS ALMOST the SG as SILVER.
they should teach this shit at schools
Can you give us an update on the toning on your Kilo? I have one on the way myself and am trying to decide how I want it to end up. Thanks!
Interesting and very helpful. Thank you. Thumb up.
Hey, so I did this test with an engelhard prospector round I have. Details are fine but its gold plated and when I did the test I got about 10.8. Do you think this is a cause for concern or do you think that difference is due to the gold plating? Take care man
if I would of seen this fantastic clip a week I would not of ordered chemical test . thank again.
well i tested a silver fork, and its 56/6 = 9.333, does this mean its plated? i compared with the chart and it says its thulium??
I do this test with the water at 20 deg. (+/-2 deg) Celcius. I think most people become familiar over time when they get a fake. I’ve been lucky so far…knock on wood! This test gives very accurate results because it’s mechanical & doesn’t involve expensive & elaborate electronic equipment which sometimes could be hit or miss…quirky. Thanks for sharing.
Excellent…thank you !!!!
Really enjoyed this video. Now I can test my silver. I just bought the YPS Kilo Skull for $656 (ebay buy it now/best offer)was able to get some ebucks too since he didn’t list it under coins, but only under collectibles, excited to get it and add to my collection. Thanks for the videos!
What if you mixed a nice alloy of brass and tungsten, and used that to make core for poured kilo bars? Match the alloy to silver’s density, keep enough silver around the core to trick the acid and magnet. Only a really $$$ echo machine can find out the forgery. With silver expensive at it is, surely a wortwhile effort for a criminal with a kitchen and a torch.
pretty cool sir..thanks
Nice vid but carful how you handle the coins. Esp the Morgan. Being such a nice Morgan you are putting oils from your fingers on the surface. Hold the coin on the edges.
great vid. very helpful !
nice video mate, im gunna test two of mine that im a little sketchy on
did I see German silver?
Great video, how can we get the list of "specific gravity"? Also who makes your scale, everyone I have bought has been a disappointment
great info. thanks Silver Slacker
Are all Morgan rounds 90%? I bought some that were advertised as .999 and they look just like my walking liberty rounds
hey buddy finally a did the test with a 1971 and 1974 one dollar coin I look on google and some places say is 40 % silver and some places not , so I did the test you teach us here and guess what ? the coin weight 22.6 and 22.5 grams , the gravity of the coin inside the water was 2.5 in both coins !!! so 22.6 /2.5 = 9.4 and 22.5 / 2.5 = 9.00 the gravity of silver you say is 10.4 -10.6 my result was 9.04 and 9.00 .,,, But if you multiply the weight 22.6 x 40% silver the result is 9.04 or 22.5 X 40% silver is 9.00 is not AMAZING ? that is exactly the number on my weight with the coin
thanks silver slacker.. I don’t have any of that yet got to wait for money but I will be checking.. I need some poured silver my friend..
Will the following scale work? METICULOUS ACCURACY: Measure jewelry, medicine, and cooking ingredients with refined accuracy 0.1g / 0.01 oz, up to a weight range of 2000g / 70.55 oz DIVERSE FUNCTIONALITY: Quickly convert measurement results between g, oz, tl, ct, and gn. Handy grain measurement for postage,cooking, hunting, and jewelry
He sounds like joe from family guy
Great lesson I thought the magnet test was the besr but this em’s even better
come on..your not touching it complete down..it’s not touching bottom, hanging…
Very interesting video,
Wow, cool. Finally a video on this that has some value. Too many videos saying tap and listen, those have no value at all. We do need ways to test silver without wasting $30,000.00, what I seen testers go for.
Very interesting video!
