"Well, I only found two of these items online which bore the exact same markings as Bills, both listed as Babbitt, only one stating it to be a Rare Manganese Babbitt, even so, the auction description stated it would make a great paperweight. I…"

"Well, I'm highly skeptical and I've handled a lot of silver. If it was a silver bar, then it would be marked with a purity mark (percentage). Furthermore, there are apparently a lot of these Babbitt metal bars floating around; check out…"

"I agree with Tom, so many times you find an item through online searches have been labelled as one thing, but are in fact something else. $35 for a test of the metal is a small price to pay, given the possible outcome you have something truly…"

"There is no such word as syracose.  It is plainly stamped on your bar. There is a gold buyer in Boise ID that has a machine that can assay your bar and tell you what you have. He charges $35.00 for his time and use of his machine.  I…"
