Picked this up today. Thoughts on sending in for grading? Weight is 31.1 grams. Thanks!

How do you know it's from an ASE? Lots of private mints have 1 oz .999 fine planchets like that.

Very good question. I have purchased from this local seller before and have a level of trust with them. I have seen a few of them graded by TPG services, that might be the only way to know for sure?

I would take it to a local dealer for authentication first. I've seen these in slabs, too, but I would think an actual grade is of little value? If mine and I wanted TPG authentication, I would use ANACS

Your going to grade a round piece of silver?

I've seen it all now.

I think I have a dead cricket here someplace I should send in also.

To submit is more about authentication than grading.

It wouldn't be the first cricket to be encapsulated:

Being legitimate here. Not criticizing anyone for wanting a slab or not.

How can anyone tell if this is a legit Silver Eagle planchet. I know a bit about the NORFED dollars that were made. The man behind the NORFED dollars got his planchets from the same exact place that made the planchets for US Silver Eagles. His planchets and the Eagle planchets were identical in every way.

So is a slabbed planchet from a TPG indicating the planchet has the same specs as a legit silver Eagle planchet?

Or is a slabbed planchet perhaps another one of the TPG marketing (gimmicky-ish) ways of making money by slabbing something (like "First Strike" or different colored labels)?

Or...could this be an area the TPGs will slab for but have no real expertise in?

I think if they slab it as "no date", "blank" "silver Eagle Size", .999, weight and diameter, maybe type II
What does it matter if it came from the mint in a box of eagles, or from the blank supplier, or a different country?

It is what it is, a blank. if it's worth the grading fee to you go for it, if it's worth it at a premium to someone else, double go for it. You can buy them on etsy or ebay for about $46.00 or so, with or without upset rims.

Just my opinion, doesn't look right to me for what the mint would use or would even get, they come polished from the supplier, it looks right for the ones they sell on ebay and etsy though.

Could be a silver plated planchet or a solid silver planchet.
Either way XRF won't help in this case with authentication.

If it turns out to be solid pure silver, the silver value still not high enough to justify the authentication and grading fees.
Continue with the investigation, so long as the costs of authentication are low enough, (weight, diameter, thickness, specific gravity, ping tone etc.)

Then,
just keep it as a curio, for folks like us to hypothesize over. No matter what, I find it to be an interesting piece.
